 Simon Lemus Hacienda Heights Tree Trimmer Death on Garo StreetTree trimmer hit by palm frond in fatal Garo Street accident

HACIENDA HEIGHTS, Calif. (Sept. 7, 2018) – A 49-year-old man identified as Simon Lemus died Thursday while trimming a tree for a friend in the 15400 block of Garo Street, according to the Los Angeles County Fire Department.

The accident happened just before 4 p.m. yesterday. Lemus was found unresponsive in the 40 to 50 foot palm tree. Firefighters used an aerial ladder to reach Lemus and brought him to the ground, but sadly he died at the scene about 5:30 p.m.

Lemus is a commercial tree trimmer, but was working for his friend when he was reportedly struck by a large palm frond.

Fatal Tree Trimming Accident Investigation

The cause of this accident is under investigation, but it appears at this time that the property owner could be held liable to the family of Mr. Lemus. A licensed contractor who is hired to do work on  your property would be covered by worker’s compensation if there were an injury or death, but if the worker is not on the job or unlicensed it’s the home owner’s responsibility.

We extend our heartfelt prayers the family of Mr. Lemus as they cope with his loss. 

There are many steps that should be taken following this type of accident, but this can vary depending on the circumstances. If injuries are involved, it’s important to get medical help right away to document your injuries and ensure the best possible recovery. If someone has died, a wrongful death claim may be pursued by surviving family members.

We hope you are able to get the help you need, but if you would like help, please do not hesitate to call us at 855-703-4186 to request a free consultation.
