Worker Fatally Injured After Front End Loader Drove Off Claymont Pier

Worker Fatally Injured After Front End Loader Drove Off Claymont Pier

A worker sustained fatal injuries after the front end loader he was operating drove off a pier in Claymont, Delaware. The incident occurred on Thursday morning around 10 am when the 62-year-old worker from a distribution company drove off the pier. Emergency responders recovered the man from the water, but unfortunately, he could not be revived. The Delaware State Police are investigating the accident where the worker was fatally injured.

In some industries, workplace accidents are a common occurrence due to the hazardous nature of the business and tasks involved in operating it. Although many workers realize the danger associated with some jobs that does not eliminate the possibility of a tragic accident occurring that may leave the employee fatally injured or with serious injuries. If the work environment contained safety hazards or the business failed to maintain and upgrade equipment to protect their employees from injuries, the company may be liable.
