Oregon Man Dies in Mill Accident

Posted By Personal Injury Lawyer || 1-Jul-2010

An Oregon man died earlier this month at a Douglas County Forest Products mill in Winchester when he fell from a catwalk into the mill while working.

 

The man, identified by family members as Holger Fussel of the Green District in Roseburg, Oregon, was taken to Mercy Medical Center after he reportedly fell into the mill and got tangled in a chain just before 8:30 a.m. He later died.

 

The mill was shut down while the investigation continued, and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) investigators were also on the scene to gather more information on the accident. The investigation is continuing.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
