Lubbock Construction Death Leads To Civil Lawsuits

Jury selection is underway in a $13 million wrongful death lawsuit.

46-year-old Richard Tankersly was electrocuted at a construction site on Brownfield and Indiana on September 26, 2003. He was on the ground, guiding a metal bucket from a crane when it touched a power line. Tankersly was struck with 7200 volts of electricity and fell 16 feet into a trench.

Tankersly's family is suing Deerwood Construction, Trumble Steel Erectors and Trumble Crane and Rigging. The trial is expected to last two weeks.
