Iowa Worker Dies At Construction Site

(from kcci.com)

Authorities have released the name of a worker who died while working to build a fertilizer plant in northwest Iowa.

The Woodbury County Sheriff's Office identified the man as 44-year-old Arturo Castor-Cavanzon, of Tecumseh, Nebraska.

He was one of two men were working inside a tower tank Saturday afternoon when the problem occurred at the CF Industries construction site near Sergeant Bluff.

Authorities say Castor-Cavanzon fell unconscious inside the tank and couldn't be rescued before his death.

An absolute tragic accident, and now a family is left to cope and grieve their loved one's passing. 

The mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical burdens that come with this are obviously immense...but when that begins to settle...what about financial burdens?

Eric, Randy, and Sarah will guide your informed decisions in pursuit of the maximum compensation you deserve, including:

  • Medical expenses
  • Lost future earnings of the deceased
  • Pain and suffering
  • Funeral expenses
  • Loss of companionship

Death benefits are payable to the dependents of the employee. Benefits are first payable to the surviving spouse for life or until remarriage. Dependent children are entitled to the benefits until they reach age 18, or age 25 if they are actually dependent. Others may qualify, if there is a showing of actual dependency. Upon remarriage, if there are no dependent children, the surviving spouse is entitled to a two-year lump sum settlement.

Burial expenses not to exceed twelve times the statewide average weekly wage in effect at the time of death are paid in addition to the weekly death benefits.

It's important to know these rights. Employers and insurance companies often just want the situation/accident to "go away". Eric, Randy, and Sarah will fight vigorously for you to ensure that does not happen.
