Industrial accident results in fatality

Workers in California and across the country are likely aware of the risks they face while completing their work-related tasks. Despite this knowledge, it is difficult -- if not impossible -- to completely remove all risks from a workplace. In fact, a recent industrial accident in another state has resulted in the death of a worker.

Rescue workers reported receiving requests for assistance one afternoon on a day in late July. A worker at Younger & Sons Manufacturing reportedly became trapped in a machine. Reports indicate that that other workers at the scene were able to reverse the equipment, freeing the man.

Despite their efforts, however, the man was pronounced dead at the scene. Law enforcement officials claim that the man, who was 56 years old, worked for a company that performs maintenance for machines at the location where the accident occurred. Representatives for Younger & Sons have expressed sadness over the incident.

Unfortunately, an industrial accident such as this can leave families facing unexpected burdens -- both financial and emotional. Funeral costs in combination with lost wages can quickly become a stressful burden for families already going through a difficult time. As such, employers in California and across the country are required to provide workers' compensation insurance coverage that can help with many of the financial hardships created by a work-related accident. Despite being entitled to these benefits, many people who have lost a loved one feel unprepared to negotiate with an insurance company. Fortunately, there are experienced professionals who can guide them throughout the compensation process.
