Murdered Boston-area pizza delivery man feared work-related violence

During the months leading up to his brutal stabbing death by three assailants, a Hyde Park pizza delivery man shared his fears of being robbed on the job with co-workers, the Boston Herald reports.

An experienced Massachusetts workers’ compensation lawyer or Boston wrongful death attorney should always be contacted when a loved one is injured or killed on the job. For family members reeling from the sudden loss of a loved one, speaking with a veteran personal injury and wrongful death lawyer can at least help you understand your rights.

In many cases, delivery companies have taken steps to protect drivers, including notifying customers of the limited amount of cash a driver carries and even restricting delivery to certain dangerous areas, particularly at night.

For little more than $20, his car and some pizza, the 58-year-old Dominican Republic native and father to twin 20-year-old girls was lured to his death while making a delivery last Thursday. Family members told the paper his daughters are inconsolable. The owner of the pizza shop plans to set up a charitable fund for his family.

About 75 friends and family members gathered at the courthouse for the arraignment of the three suspects, the Boston Herald reported. The composure of the crowd was dignified and tearful. Many held photographs of the slain man. Over and over reporters were told of what a decent, hard-working, loving family man the victim was.

Our hearts go out to his friends and family.
