New Milford – Industrial Accident Causes Death
An employee of a factory in New Milford died after an accident last Friday.
Daniel Kendrick started working for New Milford Block & Supply back in October 2018. He was a production operator at the time of the accident. At around 6:00 p.m. last Friday, fire and EMS crews responded to reports of a man who was trapped inside a conveyor machine located at 574 Danbury Road. Emergency crews arrived at the scene and found Kendrick trapped inside the machine. He died from compression injuries to his head and body. Several crews were needed to extricate Kendrick’s body from the equipment. According to state officials, the company that owned the site has had a history of occupational safety violations, resolving these issues mostly through settlements. Local and state boards related to protecting employee safety have now been tasked to start a new investigation related to this accident.
Connecticut laws are comprehensive when it comes to protecting worker safety. Wrongful death claims are strengthened by appropriate evidence and when respondents show a history of safety violations. That said, this particular case is still being studied and investigated. It pays to take note of this case because if this happens to us or our loved ones, we should be aware of our options.
