Being injured on the job is never an anticipated circumstance. We never wake up and as we are getting ready for work, think “Hey, I think I will get hurt today while at work.” We go to work for the sole purpose of being able to exchange labor for compensation. With that compensation, we have responsibility such as taking care of our household with daily and monthly expenses. Suddenly being out of a job due to injury could cause a major strain in being able to consistently uphold that major responsibility. If you or someone that you know has been injured while on the job, call the lawyers that will fight to help you stay on track with your household obligations. Call The Ben Law Firm to schedule a consultation regarding your construction injury.
On February 4th, 2018, there was a fatal work accident that took the lives of two workers on a construction site along Interstate 95 in Miami. The two that were killed were identified to be Abel Orlando Zuniga-Fajardo, 37, and Osman Aldubin Montalvan-Ardon, 33. The two men were known to be immigrants from Honduras who were employed by Archer Western Construction Company.
The reports state that the two men were at the construction site located in the middle of the highway just north of Northwest 62nd Street between north and southbound express lanes, inside of a trench repairing drainage pipes around 3 a.m. when one of the cement retaining walls fell on top of them.
“They’re hard-working people and sadly today two lost their lives, and we’re in the process of reaching out to their families and it’s one of the saddest, toughest things that we do,” said Joe Sanchez, a spokesman for the Florida Highway Patrol. “You can only imagine the family.”
Working with the construction company, the Miami Fire Rescue tactical rescue team had to use heavy equipment to prop up the wall so the victims could be moved and investigators are still working to determine how the cement wall collapsed on the two victims.
