According to the Los Angeles Times, a man suffered serious leg injuries today when a 1,000 pound sign fell on his legs at a Mobil gas station in Calabasas. The Calabasas gas station accident apparently occurred when he was working on a sign installation when it fell on him and seriously injured his legs. The man was rescued by local firefighters and airlifted to a hospital.
In this particular Calabasas accident, the injured man will probably make a worker’s compensation claim, as he was injured while working. However, it should be analyzed by an experienced personal injury attorney to see if there is any potential liability against any third parties for contributing to the cause of this particular accident. If a third party is responsible for the premises liability injuries, there may be more of a financial recovery available to compensate this man for his injuries.
