Yoni Alexy Miranda-Flores, 28, was killed on March 28 in a construction accident. The workers were resurfacing the Skunk River Bridge on US 34 when Miranda-Flores, from the Honduras, fell into the river, 20 feet below. His body was located Tuesday morning, approximately 60 yards from where he fell.
Attorney Lombardi’s Comments: If he fell 20 feet then fall arrest safety equipment was required. They call it fall arrest for a reason. This case likely has both workers’ compensation and third-party liability associated with it. If workers’ compensation, then commuting the death benefits will be a consideration.
