Fireman Dies in the Line of Duty

Kinloch Missouri firefighter Captain Richard Parks was at a fire last month that saw a 16 year old person rescued. He had driven a fire truck to the scene of the fire, but returned to the station when he became ill and was eventually taken to a hospital.  He returned to the station but then suffered a cardiac arrest.  His death was on May 11th was declared in the line of duty.

A heart attack is hard to predict but proper procedures must be followed at all times whenever there is a sickness or injury suffered while at work. When mistakes are made that result in either a wrongful death or serious debilitating injuries an expert needs to be called in to seek justice for those affected by the injury.

The St. Louis personal injury attorneys at Hoffman and Gelfman have been engaged by many clients to seek compensation for serious injuries and wrongful deaths that have occurred at work. Failure to follow procedure on the jobsite or mistakes in the emergency room can easily make a bad situation much worse when it comes to work related injuries.  If you have been injured on the job visit our website to set up an appointment with one of our St. Louis personal injury experts to discuss the matter in detail.
