It takes significant amounts of human resources in order to maintain a city's infrastructure. This includes upgrading various aspects of city streets. Recently, one city in California contracted an electrical and lighting company to replace thousands of city streetlights. However, during the process of upgrading the city streetlights, one worker was killed, which could result in a need for the subcontracting company to prepare an employer defense legal strategy.
The fatal incident happened one morning in late June when a worker fell from a boom truck. The 38-year-old worker was working for ABM Electrical & Lighting at the time of the accident, which occurred at approximately 9:40 a.m. The victim was pronounced dead by authorities at the scene of the workplace accident.
