Workplace Accident in Hudson, North Carolina Seriously Injures Worker

Hudson, N.C. (January 6, 2021) – A very serious workplace accident in Hudson, North Carolina has left worker Alan Rothernberger with significant injuries.

The accident happened when Mr. Rothernberger was trapped in a machine at the Sealed Air Corp. plant for around 45 minutes.  According to the limited information available, Mr. Rothrenberger was threading a machine when his body was pulled into the machine resulting in severe crushing injuries.

Not surprisingly, the family of Mr. Rothernberger is seeking answers as to why this happened.  Presently, the North Carolina Occupational Safety and Health division (OSHA) is investigating the incident.

This serious incident is similar to a case we handled several years ago for an employee at a manufacturing facility in High Point, North Carolina.  In that case, we hired an expert in industrial manufacturing to examine the machine which resulted in a conclusion that the machine was improperly designed and lacked appropriate safety devices and warnings.  After significant litigation and hard work, we obtained a favorable settlement for our client.
