Worksite Accident Kills Man

Kodak_demolition_large.jpgWhile performing demolition work in Channahon, Illinois, Timothy Shields was killed in a construction accident by a one inch piece of rebar. Shields and another man were breaking down sections of a weigh scale when a 10 foot section of rebar broke loose, striking Mr. Shields in the forehead underneath the hardhat. Mr. Shields was taken to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Wearing PPE, as Mr. Shields was doing, is always one of the best way to maintain a safe work environment and avoid a work injury, but wearing PPE alone does not provide a 100% guarantee that you will not be the victim of an on the job injury. Construction demolition work, particularly at old industrial sites, can be especially treachorous, because there are no plans or specs to be reviewed, and the work can be somewhat chaotic. Georgia workers’ compensation lawyers are frequently called upon to represent those hurt during the demo phase of a construction project.
