Workers' Compensation

South Carolina Man Killed In Worksite Accident

Any time a workplace accident results in serious injury or death, the worker or their family should conduct a thorough investigation in order to be compensated for their loss. Accidents on the job account for 6,000 annual deaths in the United States. Because construction workers normally work under dangerous conditions, accidents on construction sites are common and often devastating for the worker or their families.

Just recently, a Carolina Marine worker was crushed by a crane and killed in a work-related death while working on a public boat landing in Georgetown. Tommy Grainger, 43, of Bucksport, South Carolina was working on the arm of the crane when the accident occurred. The boom was not properly secured and as the workers disassembled it, part of it fell on Grainger causing serious bodily injury and death. Grainger was the father of five children. The last job-related death in Georgetown county took place in late May 2009, when a man working on renovations at Wal-mart was electrocuted and killed.

Unsafe conditions can be a sign of negligence and certain conditions, such as unsafe ladders, holes in floors, or dangerous electric lines can entitle injured workers to compensation. Working with a lawyer from the beginning can ensure that a proper investigation is conducted. By filing a South Carolina worker’s compensation claim against the company, the family might be able to the begin the recovery process after their tragic loss.
