North Carolina construction accident results in death of worker

Workers' compensation protections are available in North Carolina for family members of workers killed on the job. A construction accident in a nearby community less than an hour east of the Rowan area recently died after falling 30 feet from a bridge. The man was working on the bridge that is part of the bypass project. He was identified by a construction company as a contractor working on the project. The construction company provided information that the worker was taking a screed apart which is a layer of material such as cement applied to a surface such as a floor. Part of the screed fell of its rail and the worker fell at that point.

Asbestos-related illnesses are serious for victims

Unfortunately, a variety of serious, and sometimes fatal, disease and illnesses can result from asbestos exposure.

Additionally, families may face significant harm when they have lost a loved one to an asbestos-related illness. It is important for victims and their families to be familiar with the legal protections available to victims of asbestos exposure-related diseases.

There are many ways a person can be exposed to asbestos. We have known about the deadly effects of asbestos exposure for decades, but companies are still found putting their employees at risk for asbestos-related cancer and other diseases. A company and its supervisors were recently indicted for asbestos violations at a plant in Wisconsin.
