OUR LEGAL TAKE
Under Georgia Workers’ Compensation laws, our legal team suggests that the family of Danny Roth will most likely be entitled to significant compensation as a result of this accident. While Mr. Roth’s family should be eligible for benefits under Georgia’s workers compensation laws, they may also hold a third-party civil claim against the designer or manufacturer of the crane that collapsed. Because this potential products liability claim is dependent on the facts surrounding the incident, it is imperative that an experienced attorney be retained without delay so as to ensure that all evidence connected to the accident is preserved.
