$1.8 Million

Electrocution Verdict

We successfully represented the father of a thirty-four-year-old musician, who accidently touched a high-current electric wire while on the roof of a Baton Rouge building.

The defendant, Entergy, a utility company, presented an expert who admitted that there were safety violations involving the required clearance of the wire.  The expert also disclosed that because of the event, the utility company hired him to teach clearance and other safety rules to the company’s field personnel so that their employees would be able to identify problems in other areas.

At the time of trial, that instruction had not yet begun.

After a three-day trial, a Baton Rouge jury awarded plaintiff $1.8 million to our client’s father.
