GB&W Obtains $21 Million Verdict Against Edison for Power Line Negligence

Greene Broillet & Wheeler obtained a $21 million jury verdict on behalf of a man who had to have his arms amputated after his aluminum avocado-picking pole touched a 12,000-volt power line. The man, 33-years-old at the time of the accident, worked as a freelance avocado picker while attending business classes at a community college. Christine Spagnoli represented the man, arguing Edison failed to properly trim the avocado tree and left hidden power lines hanging above it. She argued that it was the utility’s responsibility to keep the lines clear. “Edison simply shouldn’t have installed lines over avocado trees,” Spagnoli said.
