Last Monday, a 27-year-old man, Seth Atkinson Jr., was killed at a road side construction site inside the gated subdivision at Landings Way South in Savannah. 66-year-old, Carmencita Limosnero, hit four workers and a dump truck that was in the roadway and a backhoe tractor located in the median of the road, according to the news report.
Three of the workmen were taken to Memorial University Medical Center with injuries and Atkinson died at the scene at 12:16pm. Limosnero was taken to the hospital also, but with no reported injuries. The workers were repairing the pavement at the apartment complex and they were all employed by Groundworks Unlimited.
"On-the-job accidents can be life altering and some cases such as this, fatal. My condolences go out to the families that are affected by this accident," said personal injury lawyer, Gary Martin Hays. "If someone is injured on a construction site or due to someone else's negligence, they may be entitled to more compensation through a third-party claim. It is important that a thorough investigation is conducted. The workers and their families deserve to receive rightful and fair compensation for their loss." See: construction accident lawyer Georiga
