This verdict was achieved after a two week trial for a 28-year-old construction worker who was electrocuted at a Potomac Electric Power Company (PEPCO) power plant and 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.
After a week-long trial, a jury awarded $21 million to the family of a 41-year-old landscaper who died after being shocked by a power line while trimming a palm tree in Edisto Island, South Carolina. The jury determined that the power company was negligent in failing to keep its power line clear from adjacent trees and vegetation, and that the landscaper died as a result of his chainsaw contacting a tree branch that was touching a 13,800-volt overhead power line. Prior to trial, the power company refused to offer anything close to fair compensation for the family’s loss. This verdict is believed to be the largest in the history of Colleton County, South Carolina.
