Chicago Construction Negligence Injury

On July 5, 2006, a twenty year-old union laborer employed by a Chicago construction company was digging a trench while working on a Nextel Corporation project. Another construction worker was operating a combination backhoe/end loader truck across the street on a separate construction project. As the worker operated the truck, the loader lurched and traveled backwards across the street. The laborer in the trench was hit by the truck which physically lifted him out of the trench. He was crushed to death when the truck hit a wall.
