$1.3 Million Recovered for Foreman in Explosion and Fire Case
A foreman for a fiber-optic crew, who was burned as a result of an explosion and fire, settled his case for $1.3 million. He was represented by Corboy & Demetrio attorneys, Michael Demetrio and Edward Willer. The fire and explosion occurred when the foreman attempted to open what he thought was a fiber-optic line but was a 750K triplex power line in a CATV labeled vault in McHenry County, Illinois. The foreman suffered second- and third-degree burns on portions of his arms, legs and face and was hospitalized at Loyola University Medical Center for 18 days.
