Brandon Walker of Chapmansboro Electrocuted

Comments Off

The Nashville police announce the idenity of the man killed last week working in Nashville. Another tragedy. Did Mr. Walker leave a wife, children, other family members? I don’t know. If he did and the company he was working for had workers compensation insurance they are entitled to certain benefits. The formula can be complicated and often confusing. An experienced lawyer who regularily handles workers compansation death cases should be conculted. The benefits are limited so where else can the family turn?

First an attorney needs to be hired to investigate the scene BEFORE it is altered. How low was the wire? Who placed it there? Who placed the dumpster under an exposed high voltage wire? Were warnings placed at the scene? Did the forklift have proper grounding that may have prevented the death? All these factors could lead to further avenues of recovery for the family. Again hire an experienced attorney NOW.
