Client Story: Katrina Falconer
Katrina Falconer shares the life and on-the-job tragedy of her husband Eugene Falconer. A true family man and hard worker with an unrelenting passion for family.
Beasley Allen’s Mike Andrews helps Katrina through this devastating time seeking justice for Eugene.
Mr. Falconer was injured by defective equipment while working at a waste management site in Bessemer, Alabama. The defective tarping system was attached to Falconer’s work truck by hydraulic arms. Pins that serve as attachment points are designed and installed without any way to lock and secure them in place when the arms are engaged. The attachment for the driver-side arm of Falconer’s truck failed, allowing the arm to fall and strike him. The equipment failure caused Falconer serious injuries, including paralysis. The injuries ultimately caused Falconer’s death.
