Man killed in Illinois workplace accident

Millions of families across the country bid a family member goodbye each day as he or she leaves for their shift at work. These families fully expect that their loved one will return to them in the same condition that they left -- healthy and alive. Unfortunately, a workplace accident resulting in serious injury or death is possible, potentially leaving a family grieving and in a precarious financial situation. One family in Illinois is likely wondering how they will cope with the emotional and financial consequences of the loss of their loved one after a fatal accident took his life.
