Accidents happen every day at work sites. Especially in high-risk work areas, such as maintenance rooms and transportation elevators, these injuries can create long-lasting injuries or even death. Tate Law Group assists those who have suffered from workplace injuries, securing justice and financial compensation for the injured party and their families.
In 2014, Ricky Slater was tragically killed in a maintenance accident at International Paper Plant in Savannah, Georgia. Slater was trapped while performing a routine task with a man lift, or lowerator, that malfunctioned. Soon after the incident, authorities arrived and pronounced Slater's death at the scene.
In an e-mail statement, Karen Bogans, mill communications manager, had this to say: “Ricky was a valued and respected member of our Savannah team and was an employee at our mill for more than two years.”
Tate Law Group was able to recover some compensation on behalf of his family from the elevator maintenance company, ensuring financial and emotional recovery after the incident.
Many times simple worker’s compensation is not enough to rectify a worksite injury or death. If you or a loved one has been injured at work, be sure to contact the most experienced and compassionate lawyers in Savannah, Tate Law Group.
