Porter, TX Crane Accident Causes Injuries and Death

Posted By Doan Law Firm || 12-Jul-2018

A water tower in Porter, TX had been being built for the last month or so with the bottom half being completed already. However, on the Friday morning of July 6, a worker was killed in an accident at the open water tower 150 ft in the air. A large steel panel was being lifted into the air and collapsed into the open water tower while there were four workers inside. Some eyewitnesses said that they could notice the workers scrambling but did not know if they were okay. Rescuers responded shortly after and were able to lower two of the workers to safety. A third worker was injured and taken to get treated at a regional hospital for arm and chest injuries. However, the fourth worker was dead at the scene.

All the workers on the site have been accounted for. OSHA inspectors arrived at the scene to determine what caused the accident. Investigators state that the work was contracted to the Indiana-based company Phoenix Fabricators who have built more than 5,000 water towers nationwide. Porter, TX is sited roughly 30 miles northeast of Houston.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
