According to the South Bend Tribune, on December 12, 2019, a driver was traveling near IN-931 and Osborne Road in Union Township, Indiana.
Around 9:45 a.m. the vehicle hit a construction worker who was placing cones in the northbound lane of Indiana 931. The right lane was closed, but the driver of the vehicle continued to stay in the right lane.
The construction worker died from the crash. The driver is suspected to have been under the influence and to have smoked methamphetamine the night prior to the incident.
Jeff Gibson helps injured construction workers receive the financial compensation they deserve. Jeff has offered to discuss the legal options for these victims and their families:
Usually, an injured construction worker can receive workers’ compensation from their employer. However, there may be other legal options to pursue if you or a loved one has been injured at a construction site.
If there is a negligent third party involved in the accident, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against this third party. For instance, if someone is injured due to malfunctioned machinery, then the victim may be able to sue the manufacturer.
