Employees, vendors and guests have a right to safety and security while on the premises of a business. The safety measures provided at the business, the malfunction of equipment, or a manufacturing failure may be at issue in this matter, and may be important in evaluating whether this tragic incident may have been prevented. Relevant factual and legal inquires include, but are not limited to:

  • What safety rules were in place to prevent this type of accident?
  • Did any such safety features fail?
  • Was the tragedy a result of a catastrophic equipment malfunction?
  • What was the condition of any machinery/equipment involved?
  • Was the construction company or property owner aware of the potential safety risks to employees?
  • If equipment or machinery were involved in the incident, were any attempts made to service, recall or replace any such machinery or equipment prior to the incident?

Under Workers’ Compensation laws, our legal team suggests that the family of Santos Galicia-Hernandez will most likely be entitled to significant compensation as a result of this accident. While the families should be eligible for benefits under workers compensation laws, they may also hold a substantial third-party civil claim against the designer or manufacturer of any malfunctioning equipment or machinery that may have been involved. Based on its history and experience in representing families in workers compensation and product liability claims, The Murray Law Firm suggests that the family of Santos Galicia-Hernandez should retain legal counsel without delay so as to ensure that all evidence connected to the incident is preserved.

Our Legal Take

Greenhouse employees, vendors and guests have a right to safety and security while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the safety measures provided both at the greenhouse and by the manufacturer of the air tank, and whether this tragic incident may have been prevented. Relevant factual and legal inquires include, but are not limited to:

  • What air tank safety features, such as an alarm or emergency shut off, were in place to protect Mr. Perez-Sanchez?
  • Did any such safety features fail?
  • Was the tragedy a result of a catastrophic equipment malfunction?
  • Was the manufacturer or property owner aware of the potential safety risks to employees?
  • Were any attempts made to service, recall or replace the air tank prior to the incident?

Under Workers’ Compensation laws, our legal team suggests that the family of Efren Perez-Sanchez will most likely be entitled to significant compensation as a result of this accident. While Mr. Long’s family should be eligible for benefits under workers compensation laws, they may also hold a substantial third-party civil claim against the designer or manufacturer of the air tank.
