Man awarded $1.45M for injuries suffered in 2006 Bellevue crane collapse

Warren Yeakey, the operator of a crane that collapsed in 2006 in downtown Bellevue, has received a $1.45 million negligence award by a King County Superior Court jury.

In providing the negligence award to Yeakey, the jury found the general contractor, Lease Crutcher Lewis, and the engineering firm, Magnusson Klemencic Associates, for Yeakey’s injuries.

The parents of Matt Ammon, the Microsoft attorney who was killed when the crane crashed into his Bellevue apartment, received a wrongful death award in April of 2009.
