Hey there wanna-be-lawyer hot shot. It would be impossible for him to get sued for slander, because he did not verbalize anything. He could be sued for LIBEL, but most likely not because who really believes anything on these comment walls anyway. They are just full of people trying to speak their opinion who really don't know what they are talking about, and don't know correct definitions for words.

Really sorry this happened. There are a lot of incidents such as...no, let me change that... it's not an incident it's more of a tragedy that happens like this every day. But nobody hears about them. Most of the time, from what construction workers tell me, you work at your own risk. I do find that hard to believe, but I guess it's true.

Safety precautions are taken on some job sites. On others, "short cuts" are more favorable to get the job done within the time frame desired.

I'm not a construction worker and I don't think I'd be good at it at all. I'm a chicken! So I really have no idea how things run on a job site. But I hope whomever this contractor is he (or she) takes the appropriate responsibility be it through lawyers (who imho are seem interested in the numbers of "incidents" that happen). There is always a liability in these places.

If it's found that the working conditions, equipment, or anything else caused this man's death, certainly it will fall on the owner and or all of their planners, projectionists or whatever.
That's the way I see it.

Hopefully, this man's family will be able to take care of the necessary arrangements, including legal remedy if appropriate without a lot of trouble.

Make sure the names of these exploiters get headline news. This is a very shady operation here. With all the OSHA requirements these jobs are suppose to be safer. They Are not. If a company can't pay the "Fine" they won 't be chased by OSHA.

They are working for nobody, demolishing a building owned by nobody. Looks like the perfect way to avoid legal liability!

Maybe nobody on the job can speak English and that is the reason nobody knows anything.
