Take, for example, the recent explosion that injured a Massachusetts Telecom cable installer. The installer was hired to install a low-voltage cable system in the dormitory of a local college. During the installation, the man reportedly brushed up against an unmarked electrical junction box, which became electrified and exploded inches away from his body. The explosion caused the installer to lose his balance and fall on his back, injuring his lower spine, neck, and right shoulder.
To recover for his medical expenses and receive compensation for his pain and suffering, the installer filed a personal injury lawsuit against the university that hired him and the electrical distribution company that created the junction box. It was reportedly revealed that, during a 2009 upgrade to the junction box, a metal connect was improperly installed and left bare wire exposed. When the inspector touched the box, it activated the wire which caused the whole device to explode. The university and manufacturer initially argued that they had done nothing wrong, but eventually agreed with the inspector’s attorneys, Joseph Regan and Kelly Spencer, to pay $1.74 million to compensate the injured worker for his expenses and injuries.
