$2 Million – Wrongful Death from Negligent Training at Work
We represented the surviving spouse and two children of a worker who died when the container of acetone he was lifting with a forklift spilled, causing a flash fire. The deceased worker suffered fatal burns over much of his body. We obtained a $2 million policy limits settlement from the company that had provided safety training, forklift training, and hazardous materials training to the deceased worker's employer. We also obtained a $300,000 settlement from the acetone distributor.
