Tree Trimmer Injured in Accident at Embassy Suites by Hilton

Palm Tree Uproots, Falls Over in San Diego Accident

California Work Accident Attorneys

San Diego, CA (January 23, 2020) – A tree trimmer was injured when a tree fell over at a San Diego hotel. The accident occurred on the morning of January 23 at Embassy Suites by Hilton San Diego-La Jolla.

A crew from Arbor West Tree Surgeons was removing several palm trees at the hotel. The tree trimmer was working 30 feet up a palm tree when the tree uprooted. It fell over with the worker tied to it. It was a gradual but quick drop. The worker was properly tied into the tree and was wearing appropriate safety equipment.

The worker was taken to a local hospital, where he was treated for a broken arm, broken leg and facial lacerations. He was released later that day. 

The supervisor said the injured worker was a very experience tree trimmer and climber. The tree was inspected before work began and it looked healthy. It was shallow-rooted, though, and the worker fell with the tree. 

Cal/OSHA was notified about the accident. Because no deaths, amputations or hospitalization were involved, it did not trigger an automatic Cal/OSHA investigation.

How COVID-19 Affects Personal Injury Cases

Common, everyday events continue to occur unabated by the COVID-19 pandemic, including slip and fall accidents, car accidents and dog bites. Victims of these accidents can still file personal injury lawsuits as a response to these events, regardless if we’re in the middle of a pandemic. There are some issues that the pandemic creates, however, relating to these lawsuits, and these issues make it even more important than usual for injury victims to contact an attorney so they can discuss their legal options and rights and how to maximize their financial recovery.
