Workers' compensation: Man dead after apparent electrocution

Large and small construction projects in Kentucky typically involve numerous workers, large equipment and cumbersome supplies. All aspects are a recipe for a multitude of work accidents. If a worker suffers an injury from an on-the-job accident, he or she may have access to a state-managed workers' compensation insurance program to assist with related expenses. Sadly, one family likely has the option to file a claim for death benefits after the loss of their loved one while working on an elevator shaft.

The worker was on the 24th floor of the apartment building that was in the process of being completed. The worker was specifically doing work on an elevator shaft when other workers noticed he collapsed. They attempted to perform CPR on their co-worker and even transported him to the lower level of the building for paramedics to have access.

Sadly, the man was pronounced dead following treatment and evaluation at a medical facility. Investigators believe that the man was electrocuted while working on the elevator shaft. The accident investigation is still pending. The Occupational Health and Safety Administration plans to investigate the accident, along with local authorities.

Not only can workers' compensation insurance help injured employees who need assistance with medical expenses, but it also offers death benefits for surviving family members regarding a fatal work accident. Many people facing these circumstances in Kentucky seek assistance from an experienced workers' compensation attorney. The lawyer can explain the claims process, investigate all options for legal recourse and provide meaningful representation throughout any ensuing legal proceedings.
