Largest Pre-Trial Recovery in Delaware History

Auto racing fans were directed by the race track owner to set up their RV’s directly under an unlit, unmarked, uninsulated 69,000 volt high power line. Following the track’s suggestion to fly the flag of their favorite race team, a family put up a tall flagpole. When the wind shifted, the pole contacted the power line, causing an electrical arc that killed two and catastrophically injured three others. Martin K. Brigham was lead trial counsel for all of the families in the case that was described by defense counsel as the largest pre-trial personal injury recovery in the state’s history.
