Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed Over Workplace Electrocution Accident

The estate of a Nebraska man who was electrocuted on the job has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against several companies and a local landowner. 

The workplace injury lawsuit was filed in York County District Court on behalf of the minor child of Korey Schall, who died on August 21, 2009, after being injured by electricity while working on a grain bin near York. The lawsuit names Nebraskaland Electric, APCI Inc. and the Saddoris Family Trust as defendants.

According to a report by the York News-Times, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) determined in October 2009 that Schall, 23, at the time, was electrocuted by an improperly wired flexible cord. OSHA also determined that he had been assembling the grain bin on a damaged ladder and had not been properly trained in the ladder’s use. OSHA fined Schall’s employer, Crane Grain Services LLC, $9,300 as a result.
