Caring, Determined Lawyers for Grieving Military Families
Losing a husband, wife, child, or other loved one serving in the military is a traumatic, life-altering event no matter the circumstances. Unfortunately, the enduring pain of such an event is all-too-often intensified by serious questions about the true cause of the accident. As our forces’ involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan continues, we continue to learn of military base electrocution deaths caused by the negligence of military contractors.

Ongoing Investigations Are Revealing Shortcuts and Willful Negligence
The fact that military contractors often reap huge profits from their work for the U.S. government should surprise no one. However, what has come to light in a number of investigations of fatal military base electrocution accidents is an outrage. Evidence is mounting that:
- Military contractors — most prominently, Houston-based KBR, Inc. — represented to the U.S. government that electrical work, including wiring of buildings housing our soldiers and installation of power generation systems, would be performed by fully licensed electricians.
- In fact, these companies cut corners and hired inadequately trained, clearly unqualified workers to handle this critical work.
- Preventable military base electrocutions have tragically taken the lives of service personnel who were simply performing maintenance tasks with generator power, showering in their assigned quarters, or engaged in activities that should never have been life-threatening.
