The family of a 55-year old construction worker has hired Houston-based law firm VB Attorneys to represent them in a case stemming from the January 28th accident at the site of the new Baylor football stadium resulting in his death.
Jose Dario Suarez was working on a pedestrian bridge that will connect the main Baylor campus with the new $250M football stadium when a crane he and another worker were harnessed to collapsed and fell into the frigid Brazos River below. Mr. Suarez was unable to free himself from his safety harness and drowned.
The incident comes less than two months after another man working on Texas A&M's Kyle Field was killed in an accident involving heavy equipment. "In the past four months at least four people have died working on stadiums in the US," said Vuk Vujasinovic, lead counsel for the Suarez family.
"Mr. Suarez was a husband, a father and a loving son. This family is going through unimaginable pain and they deserve to know what happened to [Mr. Saurez]," said Vujasinovic, "and that is exactly what we intend to do for them."
