Pair of Florida Construction Workers Killed in Crane Accident

A pair of construction workers died at a job site for a new apartment complex in Florida when a large concrete wall fell down on them during the installation process.

According to Boynton Beach Police, the accident occurred at approximately 10:15 a.m. on Tuesday, March 22. The wall, which had been pre-fabricated at another location, fell on the workers for unknown reasons.

Other workers had to bring in a crane to remove the wall and attempt to free the workers, but it was too late. The two men, 32 and 25, were pronounced dead at the scene of their injuries.

The Boynton Beach FIre Rescue team said the incident was under further investigation. One representative from the department said it appeared something may have dislodged and fell from the crane, causing the wall to collapse. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) also indicated its intention to investigate the case.

Options after a workplace accident

Whenever an employee is injured in a workplace accident, they have two options to seek compensation: file a workers’ compensation claim or file a personal injury liability claim. Personal injury claims are likely to have higher compensation, but you must be able to prove another party was negligent and therefore liable.

Workers’ compensation claims can be filed even if there was no liability, or if you were at fault for the accident yourself.

If the accident resulted in a worker’s death, the worker’s family can file a wrongful death or workers’ compensation claim on their behalf.
