The transmission of high-voltage electricity is a hazardous activity. When utility corporations transmit electricity in a haphazard or negligent fashion, electrocutions and fires are the predictable result. Bordas & Bordas has repeatedly been involved in cases with major injury and wrongful death as a result of the improper transmission of electricity by utility corporations. For example, in Stemple v. Allegheny Energy , Bordas & Bordas comprehensively investigated power surges in the area of Preston County, West Virginia, that eventually caused a tragic fire, killing several home occupants, including children, and injuring many more.
Bordas & Bordas also obtained a major settlement in Stillwell v. Young Electric Company Inc. A particularly serious case arose in Miller v. American Electric Power when an electric utility negligently permitted young children access to one of its electrical towers, resulting in the electrocution and burning death of a Moundsville youth. Bordas & Bordas remains committed to bringing justice to the victims of utility company negligence.
