As a Charleston work injury lawyer , I’m saddened to hear about this fatal accident at the South Carolina School for the Death and Blind in Spartanburg. I hope the contracting company the man works for is able to conduct an in-depth investigation on what exactly went wrong in this incident so they can make sure an accident like this doesn’t ever occur again. It’s important to practice extreme safety measures when working on ladders and on roofs. My condolences go out to this man’s family and friends as they deal with this tragic accident.
