Commentary on Fatal Truck Accident at Maxwell House in Jacksonville
With a situation like this, folks may be quick to overlook everything as just a work accident for OSHA to look into. An OSHA investigation may be important, but getting a family the answers they need often requires more than that. Have there been accidents like this at this location before? Was there proper supervision during this process? Did the victim have proper safety training? Did the driver work for a separate company? These answers and more could have vastly different consequences for victims and families, which is why professionals independent of official agencies are often necessary. The same could prove true here, as well.
