Semi Crushes Electrician

Reference: #FRN1610

Cavanagh Law Group partners Timothy J. Cavanagh and Michael Sorich obtained a $6M settlement for the widow of an electrician who died after construction companies and engineers violated safety standards that would have protected him from being crushed under the wheels of a semi-tractor trailer. Dan Green was conscious after impact but died of massive traumatic injuries after being transported to the hospital. Read the case study here.

The construction companies responsible for safety and temporary traffic control failed to place any barricades or drums to protect Dan Green. An employee of one of the Defendants admitted that 60 to 70 percent of trucks drove over the curb. This admission was confirmed by photos in the area that showed old tire tracks. Despite this evidence, the Defendants recklessly allowed Mr. Green to work close to the roadway with no traffic protection. This was a preventable and foreseeable tragedy. Timothy J.
