Worker Killed When Trench Collapses

Comments Off

Seattle firefighters worked for over two hours before they were able to extract the construction worker. Unfortunately, the worker did not survive his injuries. The construction acccident happened in White Center.

Construction accidents are unfortunately common. Construction workers have rights under RCW Title 51 (the workers compensation law). But they also have rights under personal injury law if their injuries were caused by the negligence of someone other than their employer or a co-worker.
