Elevator company employee killed in workplace accident

Depending on the type of occupation a person in California has, he or she might have to travel to work sites to complete job-related tasks. For example, employees of elevator companies likely have to travel to specific locations. Unfortunately, such an employee recently died in a workplace accident.

The incident reportedly happened at TripAdvisor, located in another state. Authorities say that while no TripAdvisor employees were injured in the accident, a 52-year-old man who works for Otis Elevator Company died as a result. Law enforcement officials released few details about the incident in the immediate aftermath.

Both local and state police departments are investigating the incident. Additionally, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is also working to determine exactly what caused the accident. A representative for Otis claims that the company is working to fully understand the details of the incident, stating that safety is one of its priorities.

Investigations into a fatal workplace accident are important to potentially help prevent similar accidents in the future. In the meantime, the family members of the deceased man must now come to terms with his unexpected death. Because an incident such as this can leave victims -- including surviving family members in the event of a fatality -- in a precarious financial predicament, states require that employers provide workers' compensation insurance benefits which extends to a variety of different scenarios, including workers who travel to different work sites. Victims in California often feel unprepared to negotiate with an insurance company in a time of recovery or grief which is why many turn to an experienced attorney to guide them throughout the process of pursuing a fair settlement
