The father had gone outside early this morning after he heard a “loud pop,” KTLA News reported. He came in contact with the power line and was electrocuted.

The power was shut off in the area by utility crews. The line likely came down amid high winds last night.

The Los Angeles Police Department is heading up the investigation.

Liability for Electrocution

Losing a loved one suddenly in an electrocution due to downed power lines is devastating for any family to endure. It is especially difficult when it is a preventable situation such as poorly maintained electrical lines. The loss is immeasurable. The aging power grid has been the cause of numerous serious injuries and deaths throughout California. If this should happen, Southern California Edison may be held responsible for the injuries or the death of a loved one due to poor maintenance and neglect.

Every personal injury case is unique and many factors are used to value each case. The losses from your claim include the amount of the medical bills, lost wages, pain, and suffering, etc. The most important factor is your life change resulting from the injury. Typically, the larger the injury and life change, the larger the settlement. We discuss your personal injury claim’s worth during your free consultation.

The first thing you should do is contact an attorney. Without the representation of a lawyer, insurance companies might make contact with you directly, and since they are trained to protect their best interests, this could mean a loss of rights on your behalf, especially if you unknowingly sign something that they didn't completely explain to you.

The length of a personal injury case depends on many factors including the evaluation and treatment of the injury. The bigger the injury, the longer it takes to treat.

Many victims believe if you don't have health insurance you don't have a case - this NOT true. In fact, those with health insurance usually don't use it since there are so many restrictions and steps to overcome to receive authorization for treatment. Johnson Attorneys Group assists you in finding the best doctors to help. Most of them even wait until a settlement for payment. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
Handling a personal injury claim by yourself is very difficult. You will deal directly with the insurance adjuster who is often trained to obtain the information they are not entitled to use. This information can negatively impact and de-value your case. Once your case is damaged, it is very difficult to repair it and usually costs you thousands of dollars less in a settlement.
