Your Indiana Construction Accident Lawyer was recently hired to protect the family of the construction worker killed at the IPL Eagle Valley power plant in Martinsville, Indiana on March 2, 2016. While IOSHA conducts its investigation, it becomes clear that this accident could easily have been avoided by proper procedures, back up cameras and alarms and better coordination between contractors on the job site. It is amazing the manufacturer of the 2015 semi did not provide a backup camera despite a large and known blindspot and the relatively inexpensive cost of a back up camera. It is hard to rent a car at the airport these days that does not have a backup camera, yet the manufacturer did not provide one despite the fatal consequences of an operator not knowing what was in his “blind spot”. The operator and the manufacturer take the risk, and the Indiana Construction worker paid the price.
