PRINCETON — A man is suing Liberty Land LLC, a work site operator, citing alleged negligence in the death of his father.
Kevin Thomason, as son and administrator of the estate of Robert D. Thomason, filed a complaint in Mercer Circuit Court, alleging that the work site operator failed to properly secure a tree and to assure the direction of its fall. According to the lawsuit, the plaintiff alleges that on Aug. 27, 2018, the plaintiff's decedent Robert Thomason was sitting on the cab of an excavator when a tree fell over it and crushed the decedent's spinal cord and neck, resulting in his death.
The plaintiff holds Liberty Land LLC responsible because the defendant's servant or agent allegedly negligently operated the bulldozer, causing the tree to fall over and crush the cab of the excavator in which the plaintiff was sitting. The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks compensatory and special damages and such other lawful and equitable relief. He is represented by William Flanigan of The Flanigan Law Firm in Princeton.
