1 dies in construction accident involving mechanical failure

Many construction companies in Georgia and elsewhere use heavy duty machines to assist with daily operations. These machines may require frequent maintenance to ensure they remain in proper working condition and reduce the odds that a malfunction will occur, as faulty equipment could pose a major threat to workplace safety. Unfortunately, a 55-year-old man has died in a recent construction accident in another state involving an apparent mechanical failure.

Law enforcement agents received reports of the incident at around 2 p.m. on a recent Wednesday. According to reports, the man was using a crane that had been attached to a flatbed truck to perform job-related duties. Initial investigations suggest that some form of mechanical malfunction occurred, subsequently causing the machine to strike and kill the worker.

Although an investigation is underway, it remains unclear what might have caused the machine to malfunction. Heavy duty machines such as cranes are constantly transporting materials across job sites and the pressure that is placed on these machines in the process can be substantial. Maintaining equipment is vital to both keeping machines running smoothly and safeguarding the well-being of nearby workers.

Losing a loved one in a fatal construction accident can be a devastating experience. While the emotional grief may lessen with time, the strain of a sudden loss of income can place a burden on a family and leave them in need of financial relief. Those who experience such loss may be eligible for relief through the workers' compensation insurance system, and they could benefit from speaking with an experienced attorney for guidance in navigating the process. An attorney can evaluate the incident and assist a client in Georgia in pursuing the full amount compensation available.
