Negligence – Work Place Safety

Our client was digging a trench at a construction site. Another contractor had installed a water line but had failed to adequately secure the line and had pressurized despite that the construction project was incomplete and the water line was not properly secured. This resulted in a large section of PVC piping being shot like a missile into the knee of our client. The severity of the injury to the knee resulted in the below the knee amputation of our client’s leg.

Outcome:

This case settled prior to trial for a confidential amount.
