Fatal accident at lumber yard leads to death of man

In San Diego and across Southern California, there are jobs where workers are constantly at risk of being injured. Some of these workplace accidents are so serious that the worker is killed. These fatalities can happen in any kind of job, whether it is physical labor, emergency response or sedentary employment. When there is a fatal accident on the job, those who have been left behind should be aware of their right to seek compensation in a wrongful death action.

A 28-year-old man working at a lumber yard died when a stack of wood fell on him. When emergency responders arrived, they found the man buried under lumber and pinned against a forklift. He was declared dead at the scene. It took approximately three hours to remove the wood and free his body. The wood is believed to have shifted inadvertently and fallen on him.

For those who have lost a loved one in a workplace accident, there are many issues that will come to the forefront. The emotional aftermath of unexpectedly losing a family member can be difficult to come to terms with. Accepting a settlement before considering the options is often a mistake.

When a fatal workplace accident occurs, the family must consider all its alternatives. A law firm experienced in helping people with wrongful death claims can provide information and assistance in how to move forward. Calling for a consultation with a qualified wrongful death law firm might be the first step to a successful case after the loss of a loved one in a workplace accident.
