A man was killed in Port Nelson, a port in California, when he fell off of a fishing vessel just this past weekend. According to accident reports, the man fell through a hatch cover and hit the ground two decks below. The man was only 33 years old. The worker was pronounced dead at the scene even though the ship's crew responded appropriately to the situation. An investigation is currently underway to determine what caused the worker to fall from that height. Until a cause is found, all work at that site has been halted. If your loved one was killed in an industrial accident such as this, you may be able to file a wrongful death suit against the owner or manager of the industrial site. Many times, industrial accidents are preventable, which means that the guilty party can be charged with negligence. For more information from a skilled
