On behalf of a Tennessee woman and her minor child, The Ammons Law Firm has filed suit following the wrongful death of a man who was killed while working for a concrete construction company. The incident occurred when a concrete pump truck with a stabilizing outrigger unexpectedly sunk into the soft earth surrounding the foundation. As a result, the extended boom of the concrete truck shifted toward the ground. Tragically, this resulted in the death of a young father and husband who was at least fifteen feet in the bottom of the foundation.
In the lawsuit, attorney Rob Ammons alleges that the concrete truck company is liable as they owed a duty to provide safe equipment and to provide adequate training of that equipment and other general safety measures while working on a construction project. Further, Ammons claims that the concrete truck company breached its duties by failing to train and designate competent persons to operate its equipment, as well as failing to conduct safety meetings, inspections, and otherwise failing to ensure even a basic level of safety was used while operating a concrete pump truck.
The Ammons Law Firm has a nationwide personal injury practice focusing on tire defects, truck accidents, rollovers, consumer protection and product liability, catastrophic injury, wrongful death, post-collision fires, seatbelt defects, airbag defects, plant explosions and policyholder litigation against insurance companies.
