Industrial workers face numerous hazards on the job each day; however, one of the most common causes of accidents is a worker coming into contact with objects or equipment on the job site. The Boston Construction Accident Lawyers with Jason Stone Injury Lawyers explain that such an incident was responsible for claiming the life of a 46-year-old man yesterday on the east side of town.
According to an article from The Boston Globe, the accident happened at approximately 6:15 p.m. at the Boston Bridge & Steel, Inc. facility located on Marginal Street. The victim was performing his job duties when a 6-ton steel beam fell on top of him. The impact claimed the worker’s life almost instantly.
Less than a week earlier, a 37-year-old worker suffered serious injuries on a job site in Downtown Crossing after coming into contact with a scissor lift. The accident, which occurred near the intersection of Hawley and Summer streets, resulted in rescue crews transporting the victim to a local hospital; however, he died shortly after arrival.
These incidents have many workers and their families curious as to what action they should take if they are ever harmed as the result of a workplace accident. Jason Stone and his team of Boston Personal Injury Lawyers recognize how confusing the processes involved with a work-related injury can be and the firm urges anyone who has been harmed while on the job to discuss their legal options with a reputable attorney.
