Man suffers fatal job site injury

A job site injury claimed the life of a construction worker when he fell to his death recently. The fatal accident occurred at an out-of-state construction site on a recent Friday in January. When Tennessee workers suffer a fatal job site injury, their dependents are entitled to file a workers' compensation claim for death benefits.

The accident occurred at the construction site of a future automobile dealership. For reasons that are currently unclear, the construction worker suffered a fall at the work site. Authorities are currently unclear as to what activity the worker was engaged in before the time of his death.

The worker was rushed from the scene of the accident to a nearby medical center, authorities say. However, upon his arrival to an emergency room, the man was pronounced dead as a result of the injuries he had suffered. His body was transported to the medical examiner's office the following day.  

Due to this tragic accident, the man's family and/or dependents may be worried about how they will be able to survive financially or even pay for his burial expenses. Fortunately, when a fatal job site injury like this occurs, Tennessee families are entitled to file a workers' compensation claim for death benefits. These benefits can help the survivors with costs such as burial and other end-of-life expenses in addition to providing a method of compensating them for future lost wages. Grieving loved ones typically choose to consult with an experienced workers' compensation attorney in order to receive professional assistance in submitting such a claim.
