The Washington Bureau of Labor and Industries is investigating the death of Allen Clifford, 69, of Sedro-Woolley, who was found crushed to death under his truck’s rear wheel.
The Peninsula Daily News reports the on-the-job accident occurred in an industrial park south of Port Townsend. According to the report, Clifford had phoned in a report of truck trouble around 6:00am Wednesday morning from Sunshine Propane. An employee of Sunshine found Clifford crushed under the truck’s rear wheel at 7:44am.
The Bureau of L&I is investigating the industrial accident since it occurred in the course of Clifford’s employment.
Clifford’s family will most likely be entitled to his workers’ compensation benefits.
The family may be well-advised to contact an experienced workers compensation attorney who has experience with third-party claims and wrongful death. A personal injury attorney representing the family can look into what caused the fatal workplace accident. A Washington skilled personal injury attorney can help maximize net compensation to the victim’s family.
