A recent fatal workplace accident remains under investigation amidst reports
that a contractor involved at the worksite has a history of safety violations.
According to several sources, the contractor failed to reveal its damning
history prior to being hired by the city.
A San Francisco newspaper revealed that the construction company has been
linked to nearly 50 safety violations despite its self-reporting on a
Muni questionnaire that it had not been cited for any serious or willful
The investigation follows a deadly incident where a steel beam struck and
killed a 51-year-old construction worker inside the Twin Peaks Tunnel.
Construction sites are inherently dangerous, and more work-related deaths
and injuries occur in construction than in any other profession.
When construction accidents occur, it may be possible to file a civil personal
injury lawsuit. A personal injury/wrongful death suit may be warranted
where the owner/operator of the site allowed unreasonably dangerous conditions
to exist or where a third party may be responsible.
