Pennsylvania woman dies in workplace accident

Workplace accidents are often thought of as striking primarily men in manual labor fields. While it is true that workforces in manual labor sectors are often predominantly male, female members of manual labor workforces are just as much at risk as men when it comes to accidents at the workplace.

Local authorities are still investigating the cause of an accident that caused one woman's death in York, Pennsylvania. While details remain scarce, around 9:30 pm Wednesday, June 27th, the woman was on the loading floor of Johnson Controls in Spring Garden Township, when the commercial air conditioning unit that she was helping to move onto a trailer came loose fell on top of her. Sadly, the weight of the unit crushed her severely. Although she was rushed to the hospital, emergency workers were unable to save her, and she was pronounced dead a mere thirty minutes after the accident. Police are continuing to investigate the scene to determine what exactly allowed the Air conditioning unit to come loose.

Like all people who suffer injury or accidental death at the workplace, this woman got up that morning, fully believing that this day would be just like every other day, and that her employer and coworkers were all taking the necessary steps to maintain a safe workspace for her operate in. Tragically, circumstances beyond her control lead to her death. Anyone who was suffered injury or death in a workplace accident deserves to have his or her case represented by a qualified attorney who will fight aggressively to ensure that the victim's rights are protected and that his or her losses are compensated fairly.
