Forklift accident victim to be buried today | Richmond Wrongful Death Lawyer

Forklift accident victim to be buried today.

Matt Megginson, 27, was killed on the job last Friday while operating a forklift. As he worked at Burris Logistics in Lynchburg, VA, his machine turned over, pinned and killed him.

He got married just last May to his wife Lindsey.

It is especially sad when somebody as young and well-liked as Matt gets killed. The accident is under investigation by the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry.

A study from the National Association on Occupational Safety and Health says that 22% of the over 1000 forklift-related deaths that have happened in the last 14 years have been because of overturned machinery. I would imagine that a forklift is one of the more dangerous machines that workers use on a regular basis.

I am also wondering if Matt’s death is a result of product liability.
