Roofing contractor cited for fatal Florida accident

When Miami residents go to work each day, they expect to return to their families at the end of their shift. Most of the time this is the case, as workplaces understand the importance of employee safety. But, occasionally a workplace accident occurs that causes serious injuries and even death. In these situations, a wrongful death lawsuit may be appropriate.

A Florida roofing contractor has been cited by the U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for exposing their employees to hazards. The citation comes as the result of an employee who was performing routine residential roofing activities fell and died from his injuries. OSHA inspectors determined that the employee was not wearing fall protection devices and did not receive fall protection training. If the employee would have complied with OSHA's fall protection standards, the tragedy could have been avoided. The Florida roofing contractor is facing a fine of over $130,000, the maximum allowed by law.

No one expects their loved one will die in a workplace accident. Although these accidents do not occur frequently, they can change a family forever. Employers who do not follow safety standards run the risk of injuring their employees and need to be held accountable for their negligence. An attorney who specializes in personal injury can help their client with a workplace accident situation. They can investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident and hold the negligent employer accountable. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, lost wages, funeral expenses and other damages.

Employers who do not maintain a safe working environment and offer safety training for their employees need to be held accountable. Florida workers deserve a safe working environment.
