Workers' compensation: Man run over by dump truck, dies

For some workers in Missouri, there are likely tasks that they perform every day. These tasks may become mundane and easy for them. However, in all work-related tasks, there is a level of risk. For a man in another state, something as simple as exiting a dump truck may have caused his death, potentially leaving his family in need of workers' compensation insurance benefits.

The incident that led to the fatality happened at approximately 11:30 a.m. on a day in early February. According to reports, he was operating a truck in a lot adjacent to his employer, Pave-Well Paving Co. Both he and a co-worker were using dump trucks to dump a load of materials in the lot.

Reports indicate that the victim exited his truck and was struck by the other vehicle. Many of the details surrounding the accident are unclear. Authorities did not immediately release the name of the victim, waiting until his family is notified.

Once notified, the victim's surviving family members may have difficulty coming to terms with the news of the unexpected death of their loved one. Because such a loss often comes with considerable financial hardship, employers in Missouri and across the country are required to provide workers' compensation insurance coverage. While these benefits can help with certain costs associated with the death or injury of a loved one, many who deserve them find themselves unsure how to proceed with the process. Fortunately, there are experienced professionals who can guide them through, helping them seek maximum compensation.
