The lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C. ® have achieved high honors and recognition by the most significant organizations in the country.

We highlight their work on behalf of construction safety, as the Big Blue crane accident was then–and is now–a case study in the need for greater visual safety tools.

By way of brief background, in 1999 three men were tragically killed during the construction of Milwaukee’s Miller Park. Bob Habush and the firm prosecuted that case to a successful verdict for $99 million against Mitsubishi, the company responsible for constructing the stadium’s retractable roof. If you ever go to Miller Park, please visit Teamwork: a monument of three iron workers and a tribute to the safety of workers everywhere.

Let us never forget the importance of safety.
