Valfilm accident leads to worker’s death in Findlay, Ohio

An investigation is still pending involving the polyethylene packaging company Valfilm and the death of a worker after he was struck by a semi-truck.

According to the Toledo Blade, 41-year-old Andrew Hohman was working on a hydraulic mechanism at a Valfilm loading dock when he was pushed again the dock by the reversing semi-truck.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

In situations like this one, it is likely that OSHA (the Occupational Safety and Health Administration) will complete their own investigation to determine what happened and if any work standards were violated.

It is important for families who have lost a loved one in a work accident to understand their rights after a tragedy, including:

  • The right to obtain a copy of the OSHA investigation
  • The right to pursue a wrongful death claim against the party or parties responsible for the accident or death
  • The right to have an attorney help guide them through the entire process
  • The right to not endure workplace retaliation after an injury or death
