Deaths Resulting From Slip And Fall Industrial Accidents

Being injured on the job is not an uncommon occurrence for many people employed in manufacturing, construction, and other industrial-related jobs. However, these days, being killed while at work is rarely an event that a worker would associate with even in the most demanding of occupations. Sadly, every year, hundreds of people working in factories, on construction sites, in shipyards, and railroad stockyards die unexpectedly and needlessly due to human error, employer negligence, or just plain thoughtlessness on another person’s part. An experienced New Jersey slip and fall accident lawyer can help.

Very few events in this life can prepare a family for the tragic loss of a spouse, parent, or primary breadwinner as a result of a fatal on-the-job incident. Even more heartbreaking is the fact that many industrial-related deaths could have been prevented had safety procedures been in place to prevent such an occurrence.

The professional New Jersey slip and fall accident lawyers at our firm, know that unexpected fatal job-related accidents can not only take a worker’s life, but these painful and shocking events often upend a family’s finances and throw the survivors’ lives into chaos.

While it is not unprecedented for an office worker or retail employee to die in the course of his or her job, those individuals who are employed in relatively high-risk industrial work environments often find themselves at much higher risk than the average white-collar employee.

Among the most common types of on-the-job accidents are the so-called trip-and-fall or slip-and-fall incidents. These kinds of personal injury accidents happen frequently throughout the Garden State, but the more deadly of these events are often in industrial settings.

Fatal New Jersey Industrial Slip and Fall Accidents

The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics in Washington, D.C., reports that, on average, nearly 5,000 workers die unexpectedly during the course of their jobs every year. Many of the 90 lives lost each week in this country may have been saved if proper safety regulations were observed and enforced at manufacturing plants, construction job sites, shipyard and port facilities, and other industrial environments. Hourly workers and contract employees are among the victims in many of these preventable accidents.

When it comes to trip-and-fall/slip-and-fall deaths, these kinds of workplace accidents make up approximately 39% of all industrial-related fatalities all across the country, as well as here in New Jersey. As workers’ compensation death benefit claims attorneys, we believe that a large number of on-the-job deaths could be prevented. In fact, workplace safety guidelines already exist to help avoid unnecessary tragedies in the workplace.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has created safety regulations for nearly every aspect of factory, construction, and other industrial work environments for the well-being of workers. Because trip-and-fall/slip-and-fall accidents are quite common, OSHA has many regulations to help prevent these kinds of incidents.
