Oct 29, 2010, 12:35 ET from Saltz Mongeluzzi Barrett & Bendesky, P.C.

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Robert J. Mongeluzzi, Esq., Founder and Chairman of the Association of Trial Lawyers of America's Crane and Aerial Lift Litigation Group, is available as a subject-matter expert to discuss the circumstances surrounding Wednesday's scissor-lift accident that claimed the life of a 20-year-old University of Notre Dame junior.

"There are strict, long-established standards to ensure the safe operation of high-reach equipment, and initial reports would indicate that Declan Sullivan was put in harm's way given the weather conditions at Wednesday's football practice," said Mongeluzzi, who has handled more catastrophic aerial-lift cases than any other attorney in the country. "It will take time before the official investigations are concluded but every school at every level that uses a lift to record practices should immediately review their procedures and safeguards to protect human life."
