Mother Of 49 Year-Old Logger Settles Wrongful Death Lawsuit With Operator Of Boom Which Electrocuted Her Son.

No matter the age of your child, their untimely death due to the negligence of someone else will always be one of, if not the hardest, thing for a parent to deal with. However, bringing a wrongful death personal injury claim may be a necessity due to the expenses associated with a person’s death. The expert wrongful death attorneys and electrocution personal injury lawyers here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates will be able to help guide you through the complicated litigation process.

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.

Australian Father And Son Electrocuted While Trying To Fix Their Pool’s Pump In Thailand.

Even though we use electricity every day, not many people are aware of how deadly it can be when improperly used. If proper precautions are not taken, and an electrical current runs through your body, there is a possibility that the shock can lead to much more serious injuries than simple shocks and burns. In some cases, when the current is strong enough, there is a possibility of death. The expert electrical shock accident lawyers and wrongful death attorneys at our Boston, Massachusetts law firm have been serving our Massachusetts based clients for over a quarter of a century, helping our clients recover millions of dollars in damages for their personal injuries.

An Australian man and his 10 year-old son were electrocuted while trying to repair a pool pump at their home in Thailand. The bodies of Andrew Fenwick, 66 years-old, and his son Jason were found near the pump in the storage room of the family’s home in the Muang district of Rayong province southeast of Bangkok on Monday afternoon. Mr. Fenwick was still clutching a spanner in his right hand, while Jason’s left hand was gripping an iron gate. The boy had burns on his hand, body and face.

Deputy investigation inspector Captain Kaweewuth Boonruang said he believed Mr. Fenwick was electrocuted while fixing the pump. His son suffered the same fate after being struck by an electric current as he ran through a puddle on the floor. Somrudi Krailob Fenwick, the wife and mother of the victims, was not home at the time and was later alerted by neighbors. Police were called to the house after Fenwick’s distressed youngest son, Justin, four, was found crying by a guard at the housing complex where they lived.

If you or a loved one has been electrocuted due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to significant monetary damages. To discuss your potential electrical accident claim, and your possible recoverable damages, with an expert Boston electrocution and personal injury attorney or a wrongful death lawyer specialist here at the Law Offices of Gilbert R.
