Indiana Slip and Fall Accident Claims Worker’s Life

Jul 30, 2014 | Slip and Fall

Slip and fall accidents are among the most common causes of work-related injuries. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics states that slips, trips, and falls accounted for roughly 15 percent of all workplace fatalities in 2012.

This weekend, an Indiana slip and fall accident was to blame for a worker’s death at an Indiana factory. Reports indicate the 54-year-old victim was injured on Saturday afternoon at the Assmann Corp. factory located on Taylor Road in Garrett, Indiana.

An article from WISHTV 8 News states the victim was using a scissor-lift to install safety equipment onto a crane when the crane suddenly changed positions and struck the lift. This caused the lift to fall over, and the worker plummeted an estimated 35 feet to the ground where he struck his head.

The Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration is currently investigating the cause of the accident.

The Indianapolis personal injury lawyers with Stewart & Stewart Attorneys understand the devastating consequences a slip and fall accident can have on a victim and their family. That’s why the firm would like to send their deepest condolences to the loved ones of the man who was killed in this tragic accident.
