A 45-year-old electrician recently died in an out-of-state industrial accident. The accident occurred on a recent Friday in April, officials said. When a Tennessee worker suffers a similar fatal job site injury, the family of the victim may choose to file for death benefits via a workers' compensation claim.
Co-workers discovered the electrician, who was unconscious at the time. However, when paramedics arrived at the site of the accident, the man was pronounced dead. He had been performing a tenant-improvement job at the time of the accident, according to the man's employer, Metropolitan Electrical Construction of San Francisco.
