Thomas Klaus Killed in Healdsburg Accident by Fallen Power Pole

Joseph Quintero Downey Pedestrian Accident on Florence Avenue; Hector Vallejo ArrestedMan, 25, Struck by Fallen Power Pole on Monday

HEALDBURG (October 30, 2017)- According to the Press Democrat, a tragic accident occurred Monday night at or outside a residence located on Young Drive when a fallen power pole struck a young man fatally injuring him.

The incident occurred at roughly 6:15 p.m. when Thomas Klaus, 25, had been helping move a fallen power pole which had landed across the lumber rack of the truck.

As Klaus assisted his girlfriend’s parents in moving the fallen pole from off the truck, the 25-year-old tripped over something causing him to lose grip of the pole striking him in the head.

Klaus suffered major injuries as paramedics were dispatched to the scene to provide emergency resuscitative efforts. Despite several attempts, Klaus sadly succumbed to his injuries at the scene.

No further details have been released at this time as the investigation remains ongoing.

This story will be updated pending the release of the victim’s name.


Wrongful Death Lawyer

Based on this news report, there are still several unanswered questions here regarding what exactly happened in this incident. What caused the power pole to initially fall over? Did the incident happen on or outside of the home owner’s property? Is there liability on behalf of the electrical company who installed and stabilized those poles? Is there liability or another entity responsible for the fallen power pole? We trust officials are looking into these and other factors in order to determine precisely what occurred here and why.

In such cases where negligence or wrongdoing may have been a factor, families of deceased victims can file a wrongful death lawsuit against the at-fault parties seeking compensation for damages including medical expenses, funeral costs, lost future income, and loss of love and companionship.

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. Attorney James Johnson helps you be aggressive with the treatment, so the average case normally takes between two and five months. Those who have serious injuries and need surgery may take several months longer. Call for a free consultation 800-208-3538, or complete the form below >
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.
