At Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys, we hate to see accidents like this.  A 27 year old man from Lawrence, Kansas was killed in an on the job accident on the Plaza in Kansas City, MO.  The man was part of a moving crew working out of a truck.  When the truck popped out of gear, the worker bravely tried to jump in and stop the out of control vehicle.  However, the truck hit a curb and threw the worker.  He suffered critical injuries, was hospitalized and tragically would not recover.  He would pass from the severity of injuries.

Our experienced Kansas and Missouri Workers Compensation Attorneys are saddened by the death of this man.  It is always tragic to lose someone at such a young age in an accident that never should have happened. 

While there is no indication as to what caused the truck to pop out of gear, there are many reasons it could have happened.  One of them is vehicle malfunction.  If your company uses vehicles of any kind, make sure they undergo routine maintenance.  Proper and timely check-ups can  help prevent something going wrong, whether it be a engine break down or a tire blow out that leads to a serious accident.

If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury as the direct result of an on the job accident in Kansas or Missouri, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses, including medical bills, lost wages and even burial expenses in case of death.
