A 30-year-old laborer was burned over 30 percent of his body when a high pressure gas pipeline exploded in Walnut Creek after being struck by a back hoe during digging operations. Our client contended the pipeline owner created a dangerous condition of property by failing to have proper maps locating the pipeline and mismarking the location of the pipeline for the dig.
Result: The case settled for $8.5 million.
