Commentary on Conley Container Terminal Trailer Accident in Boston

Something that can make a tragic event like this complex is the challenge surrounding workplace fatalities. Most every state has unique rules that tend to force victims and families to within a confined system to get the resolution they need. But that may not necessarily apply when the people involved are from separate companies.

A port like this no doubt has people from many companies working, dropping off cargo, picking up cargo, doing maintenance work, etc. If the employee of another company does something wrong, and it gets another employee from a separate company hurt or killed, then the victims and families involved may retain their right to pursue the matter in court just as any ordinary non-worker would. Is that something that happened here?
