A 21-year-old man was working at his place of employment when he was involved in an accident that took his life. The accident took place at an ID Castings plant in Noblesville, Indiana. The employee was attempting to repair a water pipe when the aerial work platform he was operating, trapped him between it and a steel catwalk. The coroner listed the cause of death as asphyxia by mechanical compression. The young man was expecting his first child next year. The Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration is currently investigating the accident.
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, in 2013 there were 4,405 individuals involved in work place fatalities. Accidents that take place at a person's job site should be fully investigated by OSHA and by the victim or the victim's family's attorney. There is no amount of money that can replace a loved one. However, family members should not have to endure the stress of medical bills, funeral expenses, and lost wages caused from an accident. Contacting an injury attorney is the best option in recovering compensation to relieve the financial stress and allow the family time to focus on grieving.
