Boys Electrocuted Climbing A Tree


Litigation Type - Other Accidents

Client Injury - Severed Arm, Hand Injury

Two brothers, 11 and 14, were electrocuted when they both touched a power line running near the norway pine they were climbing. The shock severed part of one boy's arm and permanently damaged the other boy's hand. In view of the well-known tendency for children to climb trees, Paul Schweiger successfully brought suit against the power company for not removing the tree before the accident. He settled the case for $1.12 Million. ($1.8 Million Structured Annuity)
