In November of 2017, an unspeakable tragedy struck a contractor who was servicing a vehicle at Hogrefe Auto Parts in Henry County. Following the incident, the contractor suffered burns beyond recognition and later died after the gas tank he was working near erupted into flames.
After this accident, the federal agency which governs workplace accidents and safety, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration, fined Hogrefe Auto Parts $75,016.
In response to this horrific act of negligence, is multi-pronged lawsuit was initiated by the deceased worker’s estate. The suit includes claims against the owner of the auto parts shop and the general manager of the firm.
The estate is represented by the compassionate legal team at Charles Boyk Law. The lawsuit seeks a judgment in excess of $25,000 along with punitive damages.
While this lawsuit will not undo the heartbreaking experience and loss of the worker’s family, it could help them move forward.
