Florida company pays millions in damages | Orlando Accident & Injury Blog
A jury in Missouri has awarded an injured man $10 million in a lawsuit stemming from an electrocution accident that left him badly injured. In July 2008, the man was working on a heat pump manufactured by FHP Manufacturing Co. in Tallahassee, Fla., when he came in contact with an exposed wire on the pump. The contact sent at least 480 volts through the man’s body, knocking him from a ladder and badly injuring him. The man and his personal injury attorney filed a lawsuit against FHP Manufacturing in Jackson County Circuit Court after the accident, and the jury recently awarded him $9.97 million in damages.
