Construction Worker Killed by Hydraulic Elevator


Litigation Type - Wrongful Death Accidents

Client Injury - Death

A construction laborer was working in an elevator shaft doing asbestos remediation.  A co-worker cut a hydraulic line, which was not properly labeled, causing the elevator to descend and crush the laborer working in the shaft. The young man was married with four children. With the use of expert testimony, we were able to establish that the general contractor's negligence caused the laborer's death. The general contractor failed to secure the elevator prior to the work being performed as well as label the hydraulic lines.  Jeffrey Montpetit settled the claim just prior to trial for $1.5 million.
