This verdict was achieved by the attorneys of Yarborough Applegate after a two week trial for a 28 year old construction worker who was electrocuted at a Potomac Electric Power Company (PEPCO) power plant then fell 8 feet from scaffolding causing him to be paralyzed from the neck down. The power company and its insurers, AIG and AEGIS, refused to offer anything close to fair compensation to cover this young man's basic needs.
Our client suffered a traumatic brain injury (TBI) due to sudden deceleration when she fell from a commercial recreational amusement ride. We alleged the injury occurred as a result of reckless operation by the operator of the ride. Our attorneys were able to establish that the ride was being operated at twice the speed allowed by the manufacturer and the operator ignored the warnings not to tow in excess of 15 mph, which was printed in bright red letters on the side of the ride. Defendant denied liability claiming that they had not acted negligently and that Plaintiff was barred from any recovery because she had signed an "Assumption of the Risk and Liability Waiver."
This result was achieved for the client when a tire retailer installed oversized tires on his SUV without warning that oversized tires on an SUV can affect vehicle stability and handling as well as dramatically increase the risk of rollover. The oversized tires caused the SUV to go out of control and rollover on the interstate, resulting in severe injuries to the client.
