Road Crew Worker Injured after Falling in Hole

Tuesday afternoon a Portland Bureau of Transportation road crew leader was injured after he fell from the top of a truck into a 12-foot-deep hole in North Portland.

The worker was taken to Legacy Emanuel trauma center.

Fire crews used a rope-and-pully system to get the man out of the hole that was dug on North Albina Avenue between Mason and Skidmore streets.

We wish the worker a full and speedy recovery.

In Oregon, property owners are responsible for making certain their property is maintained safely, without any unreasonable dangers. Despite laws intended to protect people, many accidents still occur due to dangerous conditions.

Common types of premises liability cases include:

Slip and Fall:

Example: A store owner fails to mop up a wet floor, or provide proper traction, and a person slips and falls as a result.

Inadequate Maintenance:

Example: A hotel owner fails to maintain the premises, like when a falling tree branch injures a passerby because it has not been properly trimmed.

Defective Conditions:

Example: A property owner fails to repair or warn the public about a dangerous condition in the area, such as a broken staircase.

Inadequate Security.

Example: A parking structure company fails to install adequate lighting or warn patrons about dangerous criminal activity taking place on the premises.

If you have received injuries due to negligence by a property owner, contact a premises liability lawyer in Oregon to help you investigate, handle your case, and allow you to begin recovery.
