Arnold & Itkin's personal injury attorneys recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of a man seriously injured by power lines as he was working near them in Bedford, Texas. The case was filed against Oncor Electric, the company that owns and operates the lines. After sustaining severe burn injuries over large portions of his body, the worker also had to have his arm amputated. Our client has experienced depression due to the trauma he experienced during the incident and the repercussions it has had on his life.
The power lines were not properly maintained by Oncor Electric and were a threat to anyone who was nearby. Electric companies utilize infrastructure that stretches for miles across the nation. It is the responsibility of these companies to maintain these lines for the sake of anyone who may be near them.
Arnold & Itkin LLP is hoping this case will serve as a wakeup call to electric companies and that it helps them consider the safety of their power lines.
The case was filed in Dallas County, Texas.
