Posted on October 7, 2017

An unfortunate accident led to the untimely death of a steel press worker yesterday at the U-Haul Falls Manufacturing Facility in Fairless Hills. The worker was pinned between the steel press and the table, and ultimately died from his injuries, according to news reports. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration was notified, and the accident is still under investigation.

Incidents like these may occur for any of a number of reasons, from equipment malfunction to human error in failing to follow safety precautions, and are considered premises liability cases - specialized types of personal injury cases. Premises liability cases can happen almost anywhere: a place of work, like a manufacturing or construction site, an office complex, or even a friend’s home.
