The widow of one of the four men killed in a Superior landfill accident has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against J. Kimmes Construction, a construction company located in Superior, Wisconsin. The lawsuit alleges that the company was negligent in failing to provide a safe workplace at the construction materials landfill. Forty-seven-year-old Tim Olsen, an employee of Lakehead Blacktop & Materials, managed the landfill. He and the three other men died on November 1, 2007 when they were overcome by hydrogen sulfide gas, lost consciousness and fell into a water-filled pit. The men had, one after another, climbed inside the confined space trying to assist each other.
