While it’s true that workers are hurt in accidents connected to their jobs every day, few, if any, imagine that it will happen as they head out to work. Unfortunately these incidents do occur and sometimes lead to serious injuries. In the worst cases they can even lead to death. This was sadly the case recently when a man who worked for Toronto Crane was killed.
When the incident occurred, the man was in the process of dismantling a portion of an old crane. As he worked, a large piece of metal fell upon him. It pinned him down, and ultimately killed him. The accident took place on a piece of industrial property that is leased by the man’s employer.
An investigation into just what happened is underway.
When someone unexpectedly dies those left behind can experience a variety of difficulties including the loss of the deceased’s income and the loss of companionship and guidance. While there is nothing that can be done to bring back a deceased individual, securing financial compensation may make things easier for those left behind. Because wrongful death cases can be complex, it is generally advisable to contact a personal injury lawyer in a timely manner for assistance in these matters.
