West Virginia Family v. Electric Company

Cases against utilities, particularly, electric utilities, can be challenging and complex. Utility companies frequently hire the most aggressive, expensive defense teams to protect them, even when they have harmed customers through carelessness. In this case, the utility corporation caused a devastating fire that killed the family matriarch and injured others in northern West Virginia. Bordas & Bordas became involved. Technical experts in power distribution systems were able to prove that the utility company was fully in control of the systems that caused the fire leading to the devastating injuries and fatality. Ultimately, the utility company settled confidentially.
