Industrial accident kills 1 man when spool falls

When you are hurt at work, you seek the compensation and help you need to recover. Sometimes, your pain and suffering results in disability benefits, and other times you bring a civil lawsuit against your employer for better compensation. Whatever method it is you use, it works well to help cover your expenses. If you die, though, your family has to take the time to file a claim for your wrongful death. While difficult, this action can help them seek all the compensation they need now that you aren't able to provide for them.

Your situation could be like this one. It's a truly sad story about a man working in an industrial facility who was recently killed. A July 9 report states that the Maryland State Police were on the scene after an industrial accident took place in Frederick County, Maryland. They arrived on the scene following a call that stated that the 38-year-old man had been struck by a spool.

What had happened, according to investigators, is that the man had been working with a large spool of metal. He was loading it up onto a crate, but then the spool came loose. It fell on him, injuring him gravely.

Paramedics were called to the scene at the 4000 block of Clay Street in Point of Rocks just after 1:00 p.m. When they arrived, they pronounced the man dead at the scene of the accident. They don't expect that foul play was any part of this accident. A medical examiner is now going to have to look over the man to determine the exact cause of death, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will need to review the incident to see if all safety requirements were met at the time.
