$44 million Texas judgment stands in fatal workplace injury at B&G Crane

A multi-million dollar judgment in Texas against B&G Crane Service will stand.

Earlier this year, a Jefferson County returned a $44 million verdict for a workplace accident at the ExxonMobil refinery that resulted in multiple injuries and the death of a worker.

Hector Barron, individually and representing the estate of Miguel Barron, filed suit against ExxonMobil, B&G Crane Service and AltairStrickland on May 17, 2016, in Jefferson County District Court.

Miguel was killed at the Beaumont Exxon refinery on May 11, 2016, when he and his brother, Hector, were employed by AltairStrickland performing work on an elevated platform when a heavy pipe fell from overhead.
