A Logan airport suffered a fatal injury at a cargo terminal on Monday evening.
The man was struck by a support vehicle, driven by a fellow coworker. The vehicle had been equipped for flight maintenance and was traveling in reverse when the victim was struck.
According to a spokesperson for the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office, the driver of the vehicle showed no signs of impairment while being questioned after the accident. State and airport officials are still investigating the accident.
For family members of those who have been killed on the job, there is undoubtedly no amount of monetary compensation that can recompense their loss of life. Family members including spouses and children may file a wrongful death and/or workers’ compensation claim to receive financial relief. Immediate family members may be entitled to recover up to 60% of the deceased worker’s average weekly wage as well as other benefits.
