Lawyers at Beasley Allen, along with the firm of Penn & Seaborn, have filed a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the family of one of two men killed in a construction accident while working last month on the Montgomery Outer Loop Project. Our firm is representing the family of David Lee White, the Montgomery man who was killed, in the suit filed in the Circuit Court of Montgomery County, Ala. Named as defendants are R.R. Dawson Bridge Co. and Miller Formless Systems.
The tragic deaths of Mr. White and another worker, Lomax Phillips, from Birmingham, Ala., were caused by the failure of a piece of equipment attached to the bridge that plummeted both men nearly 90 feet to the ground, killing them. The fallen piece of equipment, identified as a wagon lift, was defective and caused the fatal fall, which was like falling nine stories.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office, the Alabama Department of Transportation and the Occupational Safety & Health Administration are investigating the tragic incident. The prime contractor for the Montgomery Outer Loop Project, R.R. Dawson Bridge Co. of Bessemer, Alabama, was temporarily suspended from working on the project. Under the applicable laws, all employees are entitled to a safe workplace. It’s quite evident that this one was far from being safe.
