Settlement Obtained in Workplace Electrocution Wrongful Death Against Mastec

Fitzsimmons Law Firm secured a settlement on behalf of the family of a lineman killed as a result of high tension electrical injuries sustained while working on a high voltage electrical transmission line against Mastec. This was a "deliberate intention" claim brought against the employer pursuant to W.Va. Code §23-4-2(d)(2)(ii) alleging that the employer intentionally exposed the decedent to multiple unsafe working conditions. Specifically, it was alleged that the employer violated multiple Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations, National Electric Safety Code (NESC) standards, Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standards, and general industry standards which caused and contributed to the workplace accident and resulting death. It was also alleged that at the time of the accident the utility pole was badly deteriorated and rotten and that the employer failed to require the use of a baker board. At the time of the accident, the decedent was 34 years old and survived by his three daughters.
