Houston, Texas (PRWEB) June 18, 2014
Houston, Texas (June 2014) – According to news reports, a tragic accident in Clinton, Arkansas has killed two people and injured 19 construction workers. A logging truck lost control when the left rear tire on the trailer blew, spilling its cargo into a group of construction workers who were widening a bridge spanning Highway 65. (1)
Mr. Beckcom is saddened to hear of this accident. “My thoughts and prayers are with the victims, their families, and the families of the deceased. Tire blowouts can happen for a number of reasons, including a defect in the tire itself. An independent investigation into the accident will be crucial for victims and the families of the deceased to get answers as to why this accident happened.”(2)
Mr. Beckcom went on to state that, “It is critical that the workers, including the driver of the logging truck, know their legal rights, how to pursue compensation for their injuries, and what to expect throughout their recovery and the legal process.”
