Case Summary: Florida Wrongful Death From Electrocution

by | May 1, 2019 | Client Story, Media

The Butler Law Group has represented thousands of injured people in personal injury lawsuits.  In 2013, a man was electrocuted while using a fruit harvester with a conductive handle. The product did not identify by its manufacturer that it was made of a highly conductive metal, which was covered by a nylon-polymer coating.  

Howard G. Butler of the Butler Law Group was hired by the family of the 55 year old Orlando man who was killed while picking avocados from a tree in his backyard and investigated the identity of the commercial seller and a lawsuit was filed asserting that the product was unreasonably dangerous.

According to Attorney Butler, “It is inevitable that 30 foot fruit trees will grow close to, and obscure, high-voltage power lines which may be as low as 18.5 feet per the NESC so it is vital that such long handled tools be made of non-conductive materials which have been in wide spread use for decades.”

Shortly prior to jury selection a confidential settlement was reached. The Butler Law Group reached a multi-million dollar settlement in product liability and wrongful death case.

The Butler Law Group, led by Howard G. Butler Esquire, represents clients throughout Florida and the United States in serious personal injury, wrongful death, product liability and other safety related claims with offices in Jacksonville and Orlando. Learn more here.
