James Stinson Window Washing Accident Condo Complex on J Street in San Diego

Window Washer Killed in Fall from Condominium Complex

SAN DIEGO, Calif. (June 13, 2018) —  James Stinson, 61, of Jamul, was identified as the window cleaner who fell off a building where he was working at 1160 J Street in downtown, according to the San Diego Medical Examiner.

The fatal fall was reported just before 9 a.m. on Tuesday at the Metrome Condominium Complex at 1150 J Street. The man was getting ready to “clean the second vertical row of windows and repelled off of the side of the building when he fell to the ground below,” the coroner said. The injured man, who was working for Barry’s Window Cleaning, was transported by ambulance to UC San Diego Medical Center where he later died of his injuries.  It’s unknown what caused the man to fall, but the incident is under investigation.

It’s unknown whether he fell from the fifth floor or the eighth floor. The man’s daughter told San Diego 10 News that her father began washing windows at the age of 17.

The family has established a GoFundMe account to help pay for funeral costs and other expenses.

We offer our heartfelt prayers to all those affected by this collision.

A worker who is hurt in an accident while on the job may have grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death. Indeed, window washers put their lives at risk on a daily basis. The causes of these types of falls may be due to faulty or defective scaffolds, ladders, or other temporary platforms.  If the worker’s equipment fails to comply with established safety measures or it’s defective or improperly used by a worker due to poor training, there could be responsibility on the part of the employer for an accident.  A full investigation into any accident involving a window cleaner should be done to establish who is at fault.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
You do not pay anything unless you win. We work on a contingency-fee-basis, so we’re only paid if we win your case. When the case is settled, our fee is a percentage, as previously agreed, of the final settlement. These fees are described in full detail in our signed contract before work begins on the case. We cover the case upfront costs including everything from copying and court filing fees to hiring experts - so all your focus can be on getting well.
