A Mobile jury awarded $5.75 million to the families of two dock workers following a June 2008 accident.
The accident killed worker Carl Williams and seriously injured worker Edward Purdue. The skiff they were working on was yanked out of the water by a winch onboard an oil tanker on the Mobile River.
Mobile Workers’ compensation benefits are intended to compensate injured employees who were harmed while on the job. When a worker sustains a fatal injury, workers’ compensation can keep the victim’s family financially stable during this difficult time by providing coverage for funeral expenses and lost wages.
