MAN PINNED BETWEEN TOOL BOX AND TRUCK DIES

There are times when accidents happen between family members or friends. While no one wants to sue or to seek compensation from someone they’re close to, it’s a good idea to seek compensation after an accident. If you are hurt financially because of an accident caused by someone, even if that person is related to you or a friend, you deserve to be compensated.

This is a case that could present that difficulty. A man from Western Minnesota was killed when a truck being driven by his friend and sometimes coworker accelerated into him inside an auto shop. According to the news from Oct. 16, the man died after a pickup truck pinned him against a tool chest.

The man was working in the auto shop when his friend pulled the vehicle onto a lift. He pushed the brake down as far as it would go, but he accidentally hit the acceleration pedal with his heel. At that point, the truck rolled back over the safety bump on the lift and hit the 55-year-old man. There was nowhere for the tool chest behind the man to go, since it was against a brick wall. He suffered crushing injuries. Right now, the investigators believe this was an accident. The investigation is ongoing.

This is a sad event for the family of the man who died and his friend as well. In cases like this, it’s still important to file a claim for a loved one’s wrongful death. It isn’t personal; instead, look at the case as a financial decision. There is no reason you should have to suffer financially as a result of an error.
