Victim Identified As 35-Year-Old Andrew Taylor

The accident occurred around 4AM on Wednesday, November 20th at the Case New Holland Construction location on the 3300 block of South Hoover Road.

Few details have been offered by authorities regarding the incident. All that is known is that Taylor was injured while working on machinery and though co-workers quickly came to his side and performed life-saving measures, he would later succumb to his injuries at a local hospital.

Kevin Wheeler, a spokesman for Wichita PD, confirmed the identity of the victim. It is expected for an investigation into the incident to be conducted by local authorities and potentially by OSHA as well.

A contributor to The Legal Herald and experienced industrial injury attorney, Reed Martens, has dedicated his career to fighting for victim's rights. He shared the following information for those who may find themselves in these situations:

"Professionals who form part of the industrial sector in our country often go unnoticed though their work is absolutely vital for the progress of our infrastructure if not of entire cities. What also goes unnoticed is the risk that these bold workers take on every day when they head in to work.

Indeed, while working on any kind of construction or industrial project, those present on the site are constantly at risk whether it be due to the heavy machinery or power tools employed, or simply because of the fact that many independent subcontractors can be present at the same time.

When these workers do become victims of injuries, they can count on the worker's compensation system to serve as support. As any other employee of any other profession, industrial employees have the right to file claims when they suffer work-site injuries. Unfortunately the process for claims can be quite complex and, if a claim is improperly filed, it can receive a diminished payout or even be denied.

This is where the assistance of legal counsel can prove vital.

Attorneys experienced in these types of cases know the ins and outs of the law and the process, and are able to represent the best interests of their clients throughout the whole case. Moreover, if a claim has already been denied, they can also handle the appeals process. Lastly, if there's a possibility for filing a lawsuit such as in instances when workers are killed, an attorney will also be able to determine all the legal avenues at hand."
