Unexpected Fall Results in Death by Mixing Machine
Southfield, MI (Law Firm Newswire) March 21, 2011 - Unexpected death stalked this tortilla factory in Brooklyn where a worker was killed on the job.
“It is often said that death may arrive when we least expect it. This unusual case is no exception and it involves a man who fell into a mixing machine at a Mexican tortilla factory. No one knows how the man fell into the commercial sized mixing vat; a piece of machinery that was waist high,” said Daren Monroe, who writes for Litigation Funding Corporation, Southfield, Michigan.
Responding EMS crews found the man trapped in the machine but they were too late to save the 22-year-old. While the police are speculating that his death may have been an accident, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration will be investigating for workplace issues that may have caused this death. Additionally, the police will want to talk to anyone else working the same shift as the dead man who may have information on how this accident happened.
If there is a chance that he fell into the vat because of the negligence of another worker or because some piece of equipment was defective and did not protect him, this would put a whole new perspective on the case. In either situation, the man’s family would likely seek the expert legal counsel of a wrongful death lawyer to obtain compensation for his death.
In order for the family to be able to move forward financially, they would need money to pay their bills and usual expenses. One way for them to do that would be to contact a litigation funding company and fill out an application for pre-settlement funding. Litigation funding is an emergency fast cash lawsuit loan that is sent to qualified applicants within 48 hours after they apply for financial assistance.
The point of the lawsuit cash advance is to help the plaintiff pay their usual expenses and those related to the death of their loved one. In order for them to continue on as a family, they will need financial assistance in the form of legal funding for their case. Once the lawsuit cash advance has arrived in their bank account, they use the money to handle their bills and then wait for justice.
There is no obligation on the part of the family to take any ridiculously low offers from an insurance company. With a lawsuit loan in the bank, they are taken care of until their case is either settled fairly or the court hands down a just verdict.
