Father worried sons will die in workplace accidents like this one

Many Florida parents worry about the safety of their adult children who work in industries commonly associated with high personal injury risks. A man in another state says he has gone so far as to ask his sons to find other jobs, as he worries about their safety every day. He used to work at the same carbon carbide company that currently employs his sons, where terrible workplace accidents have occurred on more than one occasion.

Just recently, an emergency call sought help for a worker who apparently suffered an electrical injury on the job. It was approximately 4:30 a.m. when the first rescue workers arrived on site. Rescuers performed cardiopulmonary resuscitation, then transported the injured worker to a nearby hospital for further emergency care. Sadly, he did not survive his injuries.

A representative from the company said he believes the incident, although extremely tragic, was merely the result of an unfortunate accident. The father of the two men, who himself worked at the company for at least 40 years, recalled past incidents where his own co-workers died in workplace accidents that federal investigators later said may have been prevented. In those situations, the company was cited for ignoring warning signs of possible equipment trouble, which later resulted in a furnace explosion.

Workplace accidents in Florida or anywhere are always especially devastating when fatalities occur. Workers who survive their injuries, as well as spouses or other immediate family members of those who do not, often encounter complications when navigating the process to claim benefits through the workers' compensation process. An experienced attorney can help overcome any legal problem that arises.
