Work-related accident causes fatal injuries to 30-year-old worker

Employers in Illinois and across the country must protect employees from harm in the workplace. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration prescribes regulations for all industries, and compliance can prevent any work-related accident. However, many workers are exposed to life-threatening hazards every day because their employers fail to provide work environments that are free of known dangers.

A 30-year-old man lost his life in a workplace accident that happened on a recent Monday. Authorities say the incident occurred at a facility that deals in the supply of concrete and other building materials. The medical examiner determined that the worker's death was caused by the multiple injuries he suffered in an industrial accident.

Reportedly, the incident that caused his injuries happened while he was near a hopper that delivered material onto a conveyor. For unknown reasons, the hopper collapsed and struck the worker, causing fatal injuries. An investigation has been launched to find the cause of the hopper's collapse. Investigators will likely also determine whether a safety violation caused this worker's death.

Losing a loved one in a work-related accident is understandably devastating for those left behind. The Illinois workers' compensation system allows surviving family members to file claims for death benefits. For assistance with this challenging process, many families utilize the services of an experienced workers' compensation attorney. The benefits typically cover the expenses related to end-of-life arrangements along with a wage-replacement package that will ease the financial burden. The financial package will assist with day-to-day living expenses and monthly obligations like a mortgage or rental payments.
