Man loses life in Pennsylvania industrial accident

According to reports, a 36-year-old Pennsylvania man died recently after being injured at work. The man was an employee at a paper factory owned and operated by Procter & Gamble Inc. in Washington Township. Officials from the company explained that the accident occurred while production lines were shut down. Routine maintenance was being performed on the machines.

While repairing a machine, the man sustained some form of head trauma, and he was dead an hour later. The Wyoming County coroner said that the head trauma was the cause of death.

Procter & Gamble Inc. makes a large array of products. The plant at which the accident occurred is a paper plant, creating napkins, paper towels and toilet paper. Reports indicate that the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration is investigating the accident.

Workplace injuries can be serious. For those who have been injured on the job, filing a workers' compensation claim is often an option. Even in the case of fatal workplace accidents, workers' compensation may provide benefits to families. Depending on the circumstances, a wrongful death suit could also be filed, though in Pennsylvania a wrongful death suit cannot be brought as a result of a fatal workplace injury unless there is a third party (such as a contractor) involved who is responsible for the accident.
