Family members and the two survivors of last year’s lightning strike that killed a Revel construction worker filed lawsuits against multiple construction companies. Bryan Bradley, a 40-year-old concrete working was killed last September after being struck by lightning while working in the Revel Casino. While he is the only one to have died, two other men were also struck. The lawsuits claim the wrongful death was due to negligence on the part of the companies’.
The Occupations Safety & Health Administration fined Network Construction for violating federal regulations. Once a local storm warning had been issued, a person in charge should have determined if equipment needed to be secured and this did not happen. Now, it is up to the courts to see if they find negligence on the part of the construction companies.
