Trench Collapse Causes Death of Worker


Litigation Type - Construction Accidents

Client Injury - Death

Our client's husband, a 33 year old plumber, died as a result of injuries sustained at a residential job site. An employee of one of the subcontractors was operating a back hoe digging a trench for the plumbing to be installed to the street. One wall of the trench collapsed covering the plumber while he was working in the trench. Workers on site were able to dig him out and he was rushed to the hospital and died three days later due to the effects of oxygen deprivation. He was survived by a spouse and young children and his death was an enormous loss for his family. Susan Holden settled this case with the excavation company for $960,000.
