The case at issue, involving Mr. Miller’s client, Lisa M. Jones, was a significant one. Ms. Jones, a mother to a 3-year-old boy, struck a utility pole near Marion, which downed a power line and left her trapped in her SUV with her son inside. While Jones’s life hung in the balance, medical emergency staff arrived quickly to the accident scene but had to wait nearly an hour for an Ohio Edison employee to arrive and clear the power line. Jones argued this delay had irreversible consequences to her health, leaving her with a permanent brain injury.
Ohio Edison and its affiliate company, FirstEnergy Service Co., argued that Jones’s injuries were due to other factors including her own conduct and subpar medical care proved at The Ohio State University trauma department.
After receiving the evidence and witness testimony, the jury determined that primary fault was with the electric companies and awarded 13.3 million to Ms. Jones for the financial losses she had or will experience over her lifetime, 20 million to Ms. Jones in noneconomic losses, and 1 million to benefit Ms. Jones’ son.
