$3.5 million recovery. Industrial accident. Wrongful death.

Description

Our client was assisting in the tear-down and transportation of a crane when he became trapped in the “pinch point” between the bottom of the counterweight and the crane’s truck frame. The decedent’s widow made claims against her husband’s employer, the selling agent of the modified crane, and the company who originally purchased the crane and modified the counterweight that created the “pinch point hazard.” A settlement was reached during trial.
