Maryland Bookstore Worker Dies in Warehouse Accident

By Alpert Schreyer on June 17, 2011

A Hampstead, Maryland man lost his life in a workplace accident recently. The man, who was moving pallets of books in a warehouse belonging to publisher Random House, died when the forklift he was driving crashed into a shelving unit.

Both fellow employees and firefighters from the Westminster fire department tried to rescue the man, who was pinned between the forklift and the shelving. When rescuers finally reached the man, unfortunately, they found that he had died in the accident. His body was taken to the State Medical Examiner for an autopsy. The warehouse worker had been an employee at Random House for nearly two years.

Both police and the Maryland Occupational Safety and Health (MOSH) are investigating the accident. MOSH is seeking to discover the cause of the accident, including any person or company who may have been responsible, and to prevent similar accidents from harming anyone in the future. Meanwhile, the sheriff’s office is investigating as a matter of procedure; police routinely investigate any death in Maryland unless a physician was present, such as when a person dies in a hospital of illness, injury, or age.

Workplace accidents in Maryland can cost a worker and his or her family a great deal in medical bills, lost wages, and other damages. Maryland’s workers’ compensation laws protect some of these families by providing payments to injured workers. An experienced Maryland workplace accident attorney like those at Alpert Schreyer may also be able to determine if any third parties were responsible and help injured persons and their families seek compensation from negligent third parties.
