Commercial Plumber to Receive $600k After Defective Pipe Bursts
A journeyman plumber was in the basement of a Salt Lake City high rise testing plumbing lines. While up on a ladder testing a pressurized pipe fitting, an end-cap blew off the fitting, instantly releasing pressure and knocking him off the ladder and to the ground. The plumber sustained an ankle fracture and was off work for three months. He luckily was able to return to work full-duty.
