Cave in Accident Kills Construction Worker

Our Massachusetts wrongful death lawyers have learned that a construction worker died on Friday afternoon when the walls of a 6-foot-deep trench collapsed and pushed him into the sewer main, killing him instantly.

The 25-year-old was working to install a storm sewer line roughly 10 feet underground when the construction accident occurred in the town of Alamo, Texas. Reports say there were four other construction workers nearby at the time.

Investigators from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration will examine the site of the construction accident to determine if any safety mandates were violated.
