Victim Identified As 69-Year-Old Scott Beier From Lowell

The deadly construction accident occurred the morning of Wednesday, December 4th at an active project site near the intersection of 97th Pl and Carroll Ct.

Beier was working at the Cottage Court subdivision construction when a Bobcat excavator accidentally backed up into him. The driver of the excavator was only identified as a 41-year-old man from Crown Point.

Emergency crews responded to the call which came in around 9:30AM; upon arrival, they found the victim with injuries to his head and chest. Beier was transported to Franciscan Health Crown Point Center for treatment but he would later pass away.

Crown Point Police, as well as the state’s OSHA division, are investigating the accident.

A regular contributor to Legal Herald and an experienced construction death attorney, Jeff Gibson had the following information for loved ones of victims killed in construction accidents:

“Construction employees are likely some of the most underappreciated workers in our country. It’s not difficult to believe that the USA would not have become the industrial powerhouse it is today without the brave individuals who labor on project sites day in and day out.

These bold workers face serious dangers and varied hazards at essentially all times, yet they persevere nonetheless. But what happens when they inevitably suffer some sort of injury? As with most other employees, construction workers have the right to receive compensation that pays for medical bills and other damages. This compensation is pursued through a worker’s compensation claim.

Unfortunately, construction accidents don’t just injure workers; in many cases, lives are lost in these incidents. The power tools and heavy machinery found on project sites are only some of the culprits of these tragedies.

When workers don’t survive an accident, the loved ones of the victim and in some instances other dependents have the possibility of coming forth with a construction death lawsuit. Through this legal process, those affected the most can fight for compensation that takes care of the damages brought on by the incident.

All cases are different so those who have suffered a injury on the job or are the family member of a deceased worker should discuss their case with an experienced construction accident attorney who will be able to analyze the circumstances and explain all of the possible legal options.”
