Wrongful death claims for fatal work accidents

When most people wake up in the morning in Western Pennsylvania for work, they do not think that they'll be in some kind of accident that could be potentially fatal. Often on this blog, we relay stories to our readers about forklift accidents. Not too long ago we posted a blog about a gas drilling company worker who was killed during a work-related accident that involved a forklift. Last week, sadly, another industry worker in Pennsylvania was killed in an accident also involving a forklift.

The fatal accident in question this time took place at the Cromwell Corporation, a stainless steel manufacturing plant located near Hopewell, Pennsylvania. According to authorities, the 54-year-old man was crushed by a forklift that was carrying as much as five hundred pounds of metal. He initially survived, but died later at the hospital.

When someone you love dies suddenly, it's a difficult situation with which to deal. This is especially true when it's an accident that happened on the job site that you know could have been prevented. Although there is nothing that can be done to bring your loved one back, family members may be able to recover compensation for mental suffering and future earnings of the victim by filing a wrongful death claim.
