Man Killed In Wilton Tree Fall Accident on Mt McGregor Road

WILTON, NEW YORK (December 29, 2022) – A tree service worker has tragically died after falling on the job at a home along Mt. McGregor Road.

Wilton police officials are saying that the accident took place around 9:00 a.m. on Wednesday. A 57-year-old man was working on a tree when he fell roughly 30 feet.

Firefighters and paramedics were called to the scene of the accident in order to help the victim. Sadly, the tree worker was pronounced dead at the scene.

A full investigation into the collision remains ongoing at this time.

Liability For Wilton Tree Fall Accidents

Falls from trees may seem like freak occurrences, but they are much more common than many people realize. According to the Centers for Disease Control, “During 1992–2007, a total of 1,285 workers died while performing tree care and maintenance; 44% were trimming or pruning a tree when fatally injured.” There are a number of steps that should be taken to prevent tree fall accidents.

  • Workers should be properly trained.
  • Workers should be given fall protection gear.
  • The equipment workers use should be maintained.

The family of any person that died on the job may have legal recourse through a civil claim. Damages in a civil claim can help cover many of the expenses that come with the sudden loss of a loved one. It is extremely important that all evidence is properly preserved after any accident. A wrongful death attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what your legal options are.
