    The employer of the company should be responsible to pay for the victim’s expenses. Based on what happened, the company and its employees are not prepared for such an accident. I wouldn’t say that the worker was not trained because he worked for the company for almost 20 years already. However, maybe he does not have anyone to help him with the work that’s why he made an error, and a fatal one.
