Fatal Workplace Accident on J Street in San Diego
(June 13, 2018) According to a San Diego Medical Examiner, a window cleaner who has been identified as 61-year-old James Stinson fell from his position at 1150 J Street just before 9:00 a.m. Tuesday morning. The fall was reported at the Metronome Condominium Complex located at 1150 J Street. Reports have stated that the man was about to clean the second row of windows when he fell to the ground below.
The man who worked for Barry’s Window Cleaning was immediately rushed to the hospital for his injuries. Unfortunately, he later died at the hospital while undergoing treatment. The accident is currently under investigation as it is still unclear exactly what made the man fall from the building. The family of the victim is reportedly looking to other sources to help pay for funeral costs. Our hearts go out the victim’s family and friends during this tragic time.
Construction Accident Attorney
An investigation into this unfortunate accident is currently ongoing in order to determine exactly what caused the man to fall. Typically, when someone is injured on the job, the company that employs that person may be held liable for all medical expenses. In the event of a wrongful death, the victims’ family may be able to obtain compensation for all lost future wages, funeral costs, and medical costs.
If it is determined that the victim was, in fact, going about doing his job as usual when the accident occurred, then the company will likely be facing a wrongful death lawsuit. However, it is always up to the victims’ families to decide if they wish to seek compensation.
