$10,340,000 Recovery on Top of Seven Figure Prior Confidential Settlement

Lucent Technology’s electricians certified to a crew of outside contractors that it was safe to enter a “de-energized” piece of electrical equipment. The assurance was false, the equipment had 12,470 volts flowing through it, and one of the contractor employees suffered severe electrical burns. The non-confidential portion of the settlement exceeded $10,000,000.
