Worker Settles Claim With Tank Manufacturer
Worker Settles Claim with Tank Manufacturer
An employee of a fire truck manufacturer in Pennsylvania was injured in a work-related accident when a tank collapsed on his left foot, which resulted in him losing two toes. The incident occurred when the man was unloading a 3,500-gallon plastic truck tank using a two-legged bridge chain sling. The rigging system, which called for 3 ½ inch bolts, used bolts that were ½ inch too short.
The case was settled for $950,000.For free information about construction accidents, see Pennsylvania’s construction accident attorneys.
