Talk to Weitz & Luxenberg before you file a stray electricity injury lawsuit
Calvin was raking leaves in his driveway when a loose wire fell from a telephone pole and struck his right shoulder and neck. Calvin went to the hospital and was diagnosed with severe electrical burns and neurological damage. Unfortunately, this incident forced Calvin to resign from his job and go on permanent disability. Calvin suffered a considerable loss of income aside from the unwarranted pain and suffering of the incident. The electric company called it a simple accident, but Calvin had seen the wire dangling loosely for weeks, and had even called once to complain that it may be improperly installed.
