Construction accidents keep the best Georgia workers’ compensation lawyers busy, with worksite injuries becoming more and more common. Often, work injuries are not isolated incidents—and are often preventable.
One such work accident recently occurred in Knoxville, Tennessee, when Solin Estrada Jiminez was killed when a chunk of concrete fell off a support beam of the Henley Street Bridge. Jiminez was an undocumented worker for Britton Bridge, LLC.
In January, John Womac, 33, also died while working on the Henley Bridge. After that workplace injury, Britton Bridge (Womac’s employer) was cited by TOSHA for failing to adequately train its workers. Mr. Womac was killed while operating a track hoe. Britton Bridge has finally been disqualified from bidding on future projects while state officials review the Company’s safety procedures.
