Lars Johnson, attorney for the Gonzalez family, could not be reached for comment, but in a news release, he called the verdict the ultimate statement of accountability.

A spokesman for Atlas could not be reached for comment. Gonzalez worked for USS Cal Builders, which was constructing a gas compressor facility to replace equipment that was about 60 yearsold, according to City News Service.The company hired Atlas to provide plans and specifications for the design and implementation of the form structures, the news agency reported. Gonzalez was helping put up a wall at the Hyperion Treatment Plant, which treats municipal wastewater from the city of Los Angeles, when the accident occurred Aug. 2, 2011. He suffered severe head trauma when he fell and parts of the wall collapsed on him. Attorneys for Atlas argued that the company was not responsible for the accident and put the blame instead on Gonzalezs employer and a crane operator who placed the wall-form panel in place. But jurors unanimously disagreed and ruled against Atlas. http://www.feelfreemaldives.com/wwwfeelfreemaldivescom3132/2016/07/25/at-the-same-time-the-fitness-solutions-company-youve-hired-should-be-ready-with-the-design-and-layout-of-your-gym/From day one, Atlas took the position that ithad no responsibility for the accident whatsoever, despite the fact that its design plans called for a panel to be placed at the site without proper support, Johnson said.
