Preliminary details about workplace fatalities reported to the Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) during the first months of 2017.

MIOSHA has released preliminary information about ten workplace fatalities so far in 2017. This data is published to help employers build hazard awareness and prevent risk for similar occurrences in the workplace.

The most frequent cause of death were from falls. It represented 50 percent of the total fatalities. Occupations represented were crane inspector, carpenter, laborer, and iron worker.

Four more people were killed when struck by an object. One individual was crushed when caught between objects. Occupations include truck driver, maintenance worker, public service worker, welder, and laborer.

Our law firm has represented many families who have suffered this tragedy. No amount of money can ever replace a human life.

Michigan workers’ compensation is very limited and pays just $6,000 for burial expenses. Family members can make a claim for wage loss benefits if they can show dependency. This is a complicated process because spouses can be disqualified if they receive income from another source. Children over the age of sixteen must also prove dependency and benefits can be terminated when they reach age eighteen.
