Hydesville Fatal Accident

The incident occurred at roughly 9:30 a.m. when a large sized tree brand fell from a distance onto a man working at the site.

According to the article, the man sadly suffered fatal injuries as he likely died on impact.

The Humboldt County Coroner has since identified the victim as Scott Eskra, 42, of Eureka.

At this time, Cal/OSHA is investigating the incident. The California Occupational Safety and Health Agency determine whether safety codes were violated that could have prevented an injury from taking place in a workplace.


Johnson Attorneys Group’s condolences remain with the family members and all friends of Mr. Scott Eskra involved in this sudden tragedy. We hope they are brought peace and comfort at this time.



Wrongful Death Lawyer

A personal injury wrongful death attorney will take the time to look into whether there were multiple parties, businesses or government entities that should be held liable. California law states that a government or owner that fails to ensure the safety of the general public due to lack of maintenance will be held fully responsible any injury sustained by individuals. Some examples may include when a large tree branches land on a person causing great head or bodily injury to the victim or when trees topple over and fall into the road triggering an accident injuring those involved.

In this case, the family of Mr. Scott Eskra may have the right to pusue a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault party or entity pending the result of the investigation. The claim will include a recompense for the funeral costs, loss of future income and loss of love and companionship.

If you or a loved one has been a victim of a tree accident, we encourage you to contact Johnson Attorneys Group to help you. Give us a call at 800-235-6801 and speak with our wrongful death and personal injury lawyers for a free case evaluation.

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.

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.
