A worker who was injured in 2011 while setting up equipment for Super Bowl XLV in Texas is suing multiple parties, including the stadium architects and the NFL. He is looking to recover compensation for the accident. The injured worker alleges that he was never warned about the dangers at the stadium due to snow and falling ice.
The worker was injured on the job when he was directed to an alternate exit because the normal one was closed due to potential weather-related dangers. Moments later ice and a sheet of snow slid off the roof of the stadium and hit him. He said that the snow was the size of a baseball field. He sustained a fractured skull and hearing damage due to the reportedly unsafe working conditions.
