An Ohio jury recently returned a verdict of $5.671 million in favor of a 53-year-old man who sustained severe shoulder injuries as a result of an explosion at an AEP power plant in 2007.
During the trial, the jurors heard testimony that included information about a similar explosion approximately 15 months earlier at an AEP plant in West Virginia. It was found that the plant failed to take any steps to correct that problem. The jury found that the Ohio Power Company, a subsidiary of AEP, acted with a conscious disregard of the plaintiff’s well being.
