John Bisnar, founder of the Bisnar | Chase personal injury law firm, was quoted.

“”I’ve represented numerous families that have lost loved ones. For them, the biggest satisfaction is not getting the money, but making a positive change in the way things are done — righting a wrong so that what happened to their loved one does not happen to anyone else.”

The law firm which specializes in a wide variety of challenging personal injury and wrongful death cases involving car accidents, work-related injuries, negligence and defective products said that Utility companies have a responsibility to properly train their workers on how to do their jobs and how to apply safety practices across the board.

Her daughters and mother in law had haplessly watched her burn, even as the ambulance arrived 20 minutes later.
