August 2011 - Wrongful Death Lawsuit Filed After Electrocution in St. Louis

Lawsuits have recently been filed in area courts after workers were seriously electrocuted, causing their untimely deaths.

The failure to adequately monitor or guard against the risk of electrocution is a serious risk on any job site. Recently, multiple lawsuits have been filed as a result of electrocution-related deaths. In August 2011, a lawsuit was filed in the St. Louis County Circuit Court after a man was electrocuted when he attempted to repair a light fixture in University City, Missouri. The lawsuit alleges that the wrong circuit was deactivated and the circuits were mislabeled. For more information read the following article: http://www.stltoday.com.
