Fatal Accident At Work – Crush Injuries
A fatal accident at work occurred to an engineer who is said to have been crushed to death as reported in the Irish News.
It is said that the tragedy occurred when the employee was caught up in machinery. The Health and Safety Executive are to carry out appropriate investigations into the tragic death at work.
Anyone who seek help and advice regarding a fatal accident at work may seek the help and advice from specialist solicitors, who will be able to help with making a fatal accident compensation claim.
The tragedy is compounded by the fact that following a death at work, it is often the ‘bread winner’ that has lost his or her life. The consequences are only too apparent by the fact the death was sudden and unexpected. Thus there is almost always and immediate loss of income to the family. The bills, unfortunately do not stop once a death has occurred in the family.
The mortgage, rent, council tax, utility bill,s car bills, finance, loans and more still have to be paid. Combined with having to find an immediate expense of about £7,000 for the cost of a funeral.
The loss and grieving is hard enough but to then be worried about finances can make the stress un-necessary. As fatal work accident claims solicitors, we can help take action against the employers if there is a possibility they may be at fault. All employers by law must have insurance to pay out for such eventualities.
If the death at work compensation claim is met by an admission by the employers insurance company that the fatal accident at work claim was as a result of the employer’s negligence or fault, then the solicitors helping the family can obtain an interim payment to help with the funeral expense within a matter of weeks and deal with the rest of the compensation claim when all the evidence in support of the dependents are obtained.
