Nashville Workers Compensation Lawyers Discuss Workplace Dangers

Being struck by objects or equipment while on the job is one of the leading causes of workplace accidents that result injuries or death. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that in 2012, more than 700 employees were killed as a result of these types of accidents–amounting to 16 percent of workplace fatalities that year.

The Nashville Workers Compensation Lawyers with Ponce Law point out that  a 36-year-old fencing company worker was killed as a result of being struck by materials. Reports indicate the incident happened at approximately 1:45 p.m. on  Friday at a wholesale fencing supply company on Lebanon Road in Nashville.

According to an article from News Channel 5, a load of 21-foot steel pipe was being loaded into a company vehicle when a piece of machinery used to move the load pushed the pipe. The moving materials fatally struck the worker in the head.

The Nashville Personal Injury Lawyers with Michael D. Ponce & Associates are aware of how difficult it can be to lose a loved one to an unforeseen workplace accident. That is why the firm would like to send their deepest sympathies and condolences to the family of the worker who was killed.
