Man Receives $1.5 Million For Shock Injuries

Filed under Personal Injury

An Alabama jury awareded Ronald McCarter $1.5 million dollars for shock injuries caused by low-hanging power lines. Mr. McCarter, who worked for a paving company, was shocked by low hanging utility lines while performing his duties. His vehicle struck the lines, sending 7,600 volts of electricity through his arm.

According to the allegations in the lawsuit, Mr. McCarter received twice the amount of electricity that was used for the “electric chair” in state executions. As a result of this tragic incident, he is left with limited use of his right hand and constant, excrutiating pain. Two doctors testifed at trial that Mr. McCarter will suffer from pain for the rest of his life.

Commenting on this verdict, Paul Padda Law, PLLC partner Ruth Cohen noted that $1.5 million dollars is small consolation for someone in Mr. McCarter’s situation. “This is a very sad case,” noted Cohen who further added, “at this law firm, we are dedicated to ensuring that those whose negligence causes injuries to others are held accountable to the full extent of the law.”
