Widow of Louisiana Victim Files Lawsuit Against Pipeline Company

The widow of a Louisiana man is filing a wrongful death lawsuit against Precision Pipeline, a Wisconsin-based pipeline company. Jennifer McDannell’s husband was killed when a 7,000-pound section of pipe crashed through the cab of an excavator he was operating and struck him in the chest. The incident occurred in 2012 in Brooke County, West Virginia. McDannell is claiming working conditions were unsafe, the pipe was unsecure, and there was no protective screen on the front of the cab. She is seeking damages for the death of her husband, funeral costs, and mental anguish experienced from the loss. For cases like these, J.

Losing my own brother, then my father and sister after long, disabling illnesses just a few months apart drove a career change for me. Before that experience, I never truly understood the place you’re in. I never understood the dramatic impact that receiving (or not receiving) the disability and life insurance benefits you paid for and counted on can have on your life especially when you need to focus on family and healing. What I experienced with my own family now drives the way I view my clients and my work, and I will never forget it!
