A wrongful death lawsuit brought by the mother of a logger who was electrocuted at a Benton, New Hampshire job site in August 2015 has been settled out of court. Ronald Shaw, who was 49 years-old at the time of his death, was putting air in the tire of his skidder when a claw boom being used to load logs nearby allegedly made contact with a powerline sending a deadly jolt of electricity through the ground and into Mr. Shaw. Mr. Shaw’s mother, Jane Armstrong of Tilton, New Hampshire, filed a wrongful death suit in Belknap Superior Court against Dave Thompson of Wentworth, the alleged operator of the boom.
The case had been scheduled for a jury trial later this month. Terms of the settlement were not disclosed. Mr. Thompson, owner of Dave Thompson Trucking, was moving logs from a pile to his truck when the accident happened. He adamantly denied any negligence according to court records. No witnesses observed Mr. Thompson’s equipment contact the powerline nor even come close them.
