On March 1, a 24-year-old man was replacing power lines in an underground vault when he touched live wires and was electrocuted. A co-worker used a blanket to lift the 24-year-old from the vault, but medics were unable to revive him. The co-worker suffered burns to his hand. Both men worked for Potelco, a subcontractor for Puget Sound Energy.
The family of the victim, as well as the victim’s co-worker, should contact a personal injury attorney to discuss their options and preserve their potential claims against their employer.
