Man suffers fatal workplace injuries in industrial accident

There are many jobs in California that may seem safe on the surface. However, those who must work with heavy machinery can be at risk for serious workplace injuries regarding the operation of such equipment. For example, officials believe they have determined the cause of a recent industrial accident that happened in a different state and resulted in the loss of a man's life.

Reports indicate that the accident happened one Saturday morning in late March. The 38-year-old victim was working with a hydraulic press at Diamond Plastics Corporation. A witness claims that the equipment was not working correctly, prompting the victim to attempt a repair.

The man apparently became trapped in the machine as he attempted the repair. Co-workers were able to cut the machine off and extricate the man. Unfortunately, emergency responders were unable to revive him. Typically, an accident such as this sparks an investigation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. If violations of health and safety standards are discovered as part of the investigation, the company could face citations and/or fines.

An industrial accident such as this has an obvious emotional impact on the lives of surviving family members. Unfortunately, families often face a significant financial impact as well as a result of funeral expense and lost wages. Employers in California are required to provide workers' compensation insurance coverage for the benefit of workers to help in the event that an employee suffers workplace injuries. When these injuries result in a fatality, benefits typically extend to dependent family members. For those who are unfamiliar with the compensation process, experienced professionals who can guide them through the process and help them seek fair compensation.
