Workplace accident claims life of man working in tree

There are many jobs in California in which the worker seems to recede into the background, does the work with people seeing the results without realizing the level of risk for a workplace accident or death of a worker in the course of employment. This will change when there is a workplace accident and it ends with a fatality. The loved ones of the person who died will want to know how and why the accident happened. They will also have concerns about the future when their working loved one is no longer there. A legal filing can help with the investigation and in seeking compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit.

According to a recent report, a man who was working on trees at housing for Stanford University died. He was a foreman for the company. The location is used for faculty and other staff for the school. The man, 36, was found shortly before 1 p.m. when emergency responders were called to the scene. He was trimming limbs of a 30-foot tall tree with a chainsaw when the accident apparently occurred. The initial call was for a rescue, but when the emergency responders arrived, they found the man dead. An investigation is being conducted by the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health to determine what happened.

When a worker is injured, workers' compensation is an important factor in making ends meet and getting the medical treatment needed. When there is a fatality, however, it opens another more difficult set of issues that the family must handle. The circumstances of the fatal accident must be assessed to see who is at fault. Then there will be the personal and financial loss the family left behind will deal with. A legal filing is frequently the only strategy to ensure that the investigation is complete and the family maximizes their compensation.

In this incident, a man working in a tall tree died when an accident happened. He was found on the ground and was declared dead. The Cal/OSHA investigation is underway, but it is critical for the family to shield themselves with help from an experienced legal professional who understands the dangers of high risk occupations.
