strange case-more comments
- After reading all the responces... If I am on this jury.... Mrs. Ranger's
has my vote...
Safety always has to come first.... I think not only the company but Mr.
Ralph should bear some responsibly personally.
With response to this case,"God Be with him"! With that many for seen
hazards the company who bought the trackhoe is at Fault,along with the
operator. Where was the flagmen at,there should have been one in a place
where both operators could have seen him. Thats why they have Safety
Officers at company jobs that big. The company owner who bought the trackhoe
without the safety alarms and horns is the main one at fault, Sounds like
someone was running a Fly-by-night
construction company to me.
Mr Ranger's widow should be fully compensated for the loss of her husband
and the breadwinner of the family.
Mr Ralph was partially at fault because he operated a vehicle that he knew
was missing some safety devises. Iwould have to guess he wanted hes job and
did not want to quite to have the owner fulfill his dutys as the owner of
business. Every body seems to be penny rich and dollar poor. The Fuges
must take the bulk of the responsibility. As the owner he must adheer to
all the safety rules. A safe place should be a fair expectation of anyone
on his property
