$1.5M Settlement on Electrical Injury Case

Charlotte, NC – The law firm of Warren & Kallianos settled a case for $1,550,000.00 on behalf of a client who sustained severe burn injuries to his lower extremities when a light pole he was erecting came into contact with a high voltage energized power line. The client, who was working for a subcontractor at the time of the incident, sued the upper tier contractors for failing to provide a safe workplace and for violating numerous federal and state safety regulations as well as industry safety standards that led to the electrical burn injuries.

    Thanks Terry. Be safe out there and watch for those electrical contractors to make sure they are 100% compliant with your lockout / tagout program. In surveying these accidents over time, most industrial accidents are grouped into 3 categories:
    1) somebody making contact with overhead power line with a pole or boom
    2) electrical contractors not following company LOTO procedures
    3) simple lack of training / knowledge
