$3.35M Will County record wrongful death settlement for a 26 year-old union oiler

Settlement:
$3,350,000

$3.35M Will County record wrongful death settlement for a 26 year-old union oiler (Local 150) who was married with no children caused by his fall into a gravity feed bin at an asphalt plant. We contended that the “cat walk” and the bin itself did not comply with OSHA or the National Safety Council recommendations for such bins. Parente & Norem received this case one month before the time period to file it expired and after several law firms advised the decedent’s widow there was no case to pursue. We also obtained a complete waiver of the $262K workmen’s compensation lien as part of this settlement.
