Early on a sunny summer morning, a 50 year old manufacturing employee was assigned to trim trees along his employer’s factory property line. He was found dead mid-morning, beneath a tree, with burn marks into and through one of his thighs. No one knew what happened. There were no witnesses. He was survived by his wife and two teenage daughters. After we performed immediate and thorough investigation, the accident was reconstructed and suit was brought against the utility company which had ran a very high voltage tension wire along the property line near the tree. One of the theories was that the utility company sold a defective product that was not properly packaged which caused the electrocution. The high voltage wire was not strung taunt enough nor insulated sufficiently to prevent its electricity from arcing into the dew covered tree and through the decedent’s thigh, causing him to be thrown from the tree and electrocuted. The case settled at the court house shortly before the commencement of trial for $900,000+.
Our client had a 10% off coupon that she was going to a grocery chain store to use to buy some needed items.

While she was walking over to the desk she slipped on a substance that neither she nor the store manager noticed, and fell. She injured her ankle, which required surgery. She also injured her back. We were able to prove that the store should have been aware of this puddle on the floor and should have taken action to prevent the public from being injured on the dangerous condition they let sit on their floor. This case was settled without the need for a lengthy and costly trial.
