$4.035 Million Wrongful Death From Electrocution Settlement

Sep 05 2017

An industrial painter was working under the Chicago Transit Authority’s elevated tracks when an electrical shock caused him to fall forward into the controls of the JLG lift he was working on, resulting in it inadvertently raising and crushing him to death, against the underside of the CTA girder. The defendants included the Chicago Transit Authority, Commonwealth Edison and the JLG lift manufacturer. He was survived by his wife and three children, one of which was a starting tackle for the Notre Dame Football team.
