Ohio man working on factory tower falls to his death

Construction workers often perform their job duties at tall heights, whether they are erecting a building or taking one down. While there are measures that can be taken to prevent workers from being injured when working at heights, sometimes falls occur with disastrous results.

According to a recent report from the Columbus Dispatch, a worker in Ohio attempting to deconstruct a tower has lost his life after falling to his death. The deceased was working at a former manufacturing site when the incident occurred in the mid-morning hours. He was declared dead at the scene of the incident. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the incident, and according to a spokeswoman, the man was working for a demolition company when he died.

Falls are a common cause of construction worker deaths. When a worker dies on-the-job, his or her survivors are often left in a very bad financial state. They are coping with funeral expenses, the lost income the deceased would have contributed to the household and the loss of companionship the deceased provided. It is a difficult time, both emotionally and financially.

When fatal construction accidents occur, the family of the deceased may want to learn more about pursuing a wrongful death lawsuit. However, especially when it comes to workplace deaths, filing a wrongful death claim is complex. The right parties must be identified, and an argument must be made that applies the facts surrounding the worker's death to the laws of negligence. It is not something to be undergone without professional legal guidance. However, if successful, a wrongful death action can provide some much-needed financial relief following a loved one's death.
