Man dies in accident at New York air brake manufacturer

As many New Yorkers can likely attest to, some work environments are more dangerous than others. In general, construction sites and manufacturing warehouses are more dangerous than, say, office environments. However, accidents and injuries can occur in any kind of work environment. Oftentimes, when such accidents occur, victims have rights and may be eligible for workers' compensation. In the most tragic cases, victims may succumb to their injuries and pass away, in which case the families of victims can often pursue compensation.

Sometimes, it may take some time for law enforcement officials to locate the hit-and-run driver. Once found, however, the guilty party may be brought to justice, and victims and their families may be able to pursue compensation from the negligent driver.
