Resources for those mourning losses in fatal workplace accidents

Many jobs in California and beyond are considered high risks for injury. Farming, construction and factory work are among the industries typically considered inherently dangerous. Risks usually involve heavy machinery and other equipment that aid in timely production but can also be causal factors in workplace accidents. One such tragedy involving a molding machine occurred in a factory in another state.

Fuller Industries produces various cleaning supplies, private label chemicals and brushes. A 63-year-old man who had reportedly been employed as a plastics manager at the company was involved in a terrible accident just after noon on a recent Thursday. Although the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is currently investigating the incident, no information was provided as to how the man became caught in the machine.

Police, fire and rescue workers were dispatched to the aid of the injured man. Sadly, by the time first responders arrived, he had already succumbed to his injuries. Personal identification of the man was withheld pending notification of his death to family members.

California workplace accidents often result in serious, or even fatal injuries. Recovering injured workers, as well as grieving families of fatal victims, may seek assistance in navigating the system regarding compensation benefits that might be available. There are many reasons it is beneficial to act alongside skilled and experienced guidance when seeking benefits, including the fact that aggressive assistance may be needed if an employer or insurance agency attempts to deny one's claim. As an advocate, an attorney can protect one's interests and follow through with any negotiations or litigation deemed necessary.
