In case you missed it: BGD Attorney speaks on stage collapse fines on WIBC
Posted in Litigation

This past summer,  the main stage at the Indiana State Fair collapsed during high winds.

The accident claimed the lives of seven Hoosiers and injured more than forty. Since the accident, the Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration, along with engineering firm Thornton Tomasetti, has been investigating the construction of the stage and the subsequent accident. 

Recently a conclusion has been made and fines have been issued to the Indiana State Fairgrounds and the organization in charge of constructing the stage. A BGD attorney was asked to comment on the issued fines on Indiana’s WIBC Radio. They explain that greater fines were issued to the parties who knew that a problem existed and could arise during inclement weather.

To learn more, listen to the story on the WIBC website.
