Veldesma-California (2014)

Mr. Veldesma was a worker at a resort in the Northern California woods. The resort needed work on the septic tank lines and the workers struck a propane gas line igniting an explosion. Mr. Veldesma filed suit against the workers in the propane company which failed to adequately protect the lines and to respond to complaints from resort workers of the smell of gas. This case was resolved successfully in 2014. Mr. Veldesma had damages of approximately $1 million.
