Two Georgia Workers Died On The Job in Two Separate Incidents

According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution online, a Actworth, Georgia resident died on the job in Chattanooga, Tennessee while he was working.  According to police reports Jimy Henry Tovar of Actworth was preparing to plaster a ceiling in an apartment complex when the bucket he was standing on gave way.  Mr. Tovar fell approximately three stories landing head first on the concrete.

In the second death that occurred to Georgia residents on the job, the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that Lewis William Leary was killed when he was run over by a forklift at the Gerdau Ameristeel plant in Cartersville, Brian Irish, Bartow County.

Both of these unfortunate deaths occurred on the job.  Our hearts and prayers go out to both families for their untimely deaths.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
