Galfand Berger attorney Rick Jurewicz obtained a $5 million recovery in a case involving a worker who was fatally injured in a workplace accident. An 1800 pound paper roll fell on our client from a railcar delivering bulk paper rolls, killing him.
The paper roll was improperly loaded and secured. As our client opened the railcar doors, the improperly secured paper roll fell from the railcar and crushed him.
Our client’s senseless death could have been prevented. The responsible parties failed to properly block and secure the bulk cargo they shipped by railcar. They likewise failed to provide proper training and instruction in railcar safety. As a result, our client died leaving behind his wife and an extended, loving family.
Rick left no stone unturned investigating this case. His skilled advocacy resulted in a $5 million recovery.
Too often, workplace accidents kill or injure workers. Had the responsible third parties taken appropriate precautions in this situation, a tragic death might have been avoided.
