Man Killed in Accident at Clearfield Manufacturing Facility

Police officials say a man from Layton died in an accident at the PolyExcel manufacturing facility in the Clearfield Freeport Center.

Clearfield officers were notified of an incident at the factory shortly after noon on Saturday, April 7, and rushed to the scene. When they arrived, they discovered the worker was caught in machinery at the site. The 38-year-old man was removed, but he was soon pronounced dead from his injuries.

PolyExcel manufactures twine used in various agricultural applications. The initial law enforcement investigation does not suggest any suspicious circumstances, as officers concluded it was an accident. However, a separate Occupational Safety and Health Administration investigation was still pending, and no word was available about potential liability on the part of the company.

Options after workplace accidents

Whenever an accident happens in the workplace, there are two main options for a worker (or relatives of a deceased worker): file for worker’s compensation or pursue a personal injury or wrongful death claim.

Worker’s compensation is the best route to take when there is no liability involved in an incident. If, however, the negligence of some party directly caused the accident, a personal injury claim could be the best option. Examples include employers failing to provide proper safety materials or training, or a manufacturer of a piece of machinery failing to discover or notify users of dangerous defects
