Young Man Killed in Caterpillar Loader Industrial Accident

Comments (0)

industrial accident, accidents, front loader, Caterpillar, injury lawyer, accident attorneyClaudel Belizaire was going about his day working for the Liddell Brothers contracting company.

He was operating a small Caterpillar front-end loader when, all of a sudden
, the loader tipped over killing Claudel. He was just 29 years old.

My heartfelt condolences go out to Claudel's friends and family.

"He was a hardworking, good natured, a good father and loved by many," said Liddell Brothers President Gary Liddell.

Roughly 1.6 million industrial accidents occur in the United States each year resulting in minor-to-disabling injuries and death. Clearly, these numbers need to decrease. Too many hard-working men and women suffer horrendous injuries or die while on the job in these types of accidents.

Companies need to stress a quick response time when accidents occur, vigilance and responsibility when handling potentially dangerous equipment, and promoting a team environment where everyone on the work site is focused on the safety of not only themselves, but their co-workers.
