Doe v. Utility Company

A West Virginia family lost a father and grandfather in devastating fashion as a result of corporate negligence, and a massive gas explosion.  Bordas & Bordas’ Geoff Brown retained world-leading experts in industrial safety, gas storage and thermodynamics and uncovered a raft of internal company documents demonstrating that the company was well aware of the safety problems before the explosion occurred.

Brown and Chris Regan tried the case to a jury and the family received a verdict including both compensatory and punitive damages. The case ultimately settled confidentially and a measure of justice was delivered to a grieving family, while a corporation that put profits over people was punished.
