Maryland man killed in workplace accident

No matter what type of job you have, there is always the chance that a workplace accident could occur. While this is more common in industries like construction than it is in others, it is important to pay attention to what is going on around you at all times.

Unfortunately, even if you are paying close attention to your surroundings, a workplace accident could happen that leaves you injured or even dead.

According to local authorities, a Maryland man has been killed in an accident in which he was crushed by a spool of metal. Reports state that the accident occurred at Canam Steel in Point of Rocks recently. Immediately following the accident, shortly after 1 p.m., Maryland State police were called to the Canam Steel building on Clay Street. It was there that the man was attempting to load a crate with a large spool of metal when he was crushed.

Due to the size and weight of the spool, when it fell on the 38-year-old man after coming loose, it led to his immediate death. Even though no foul play is suspected, there are still plenty of questions surrounding the accident, including how the spool of metal came loose while being loaded.

There are times when a workplace accident only injures the person involved. Unfortunately, there are also cases like this one when the victim is killed. In the event of this type of accident, the company in charge is often the target of a lawsuit filed by the victim or their survivors, if the person passes on.
