Worker Killed In Equipment Accident

Working in heavy industry is very dangerous. There are many safety rules that must be followed to keep the lives and limbs of workers safe. Sadly, accidents can still happen and it’s up to the courts to figure out why it happened and who deserves to pay for the damages.

At Nucor Steel earlier this month, one worker died after being crushed to death in an equipment shop. Nucor Steel melts down scrap metal into sheet metal and I-beams, and employs more than 900 people.  The workers in the shop were repairing a piece of equipment when it fell on one of the workers. He was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead.

OSHA and Berkeley County officials are still trying to piece together what happened. The family of the affected worker deserve answers. People need to know if the worker was being unsafe and why. Were safety rules not followed? Was it a true accident? A large range of questions must be answered in order for insurance companies, regulators, and courts to come to the right decision.

If the company is found to have broken the law, then they must be pursued in court. If you have been injured in a workplace accident, talk with a lawyer. The attorneys at Christmas Injury Lawyers are ready to hear your worker’s compensation case. Call us for more information and a free consultation.
