SETTLEMENT REACHED IN WORKPLACE ASPHYXIATION CASE

Nancy Huff, Administratrix of the Estate of Tim Huff, Deceased v. Suisse-Atlantique Societé de Navigation Maritime SA., et al. | Mobile County Circuit Court | Civil Action No. CV-2009-902149

In 2010, a confidential settlement was obtained in this maritime death case. A coal cargo ship from the Ukraine was in port in Mobile and being offloaded at the docks. A grabber crane got hung up in the hold of the ship during unloading, and plaintiff’s decedent was called from his shoreside location to come and assist the crane operator. The ship’s crew gave permission for plaintiff’s decedent to go down into the hold, and when he did he was asphyxiated and killed.
