Tree trimmer company sued by Texas utility company

Posted on September 22nd, 2013 No Comments

An electric cooperative in Texas filed a $35 million lawsuit against a tree-trimming company, stating it allegedly failed to appropriately grow vegetation in the area, the Austin-American Statesman reported on Thursday, September 12.

According to reports, Pennsylvania-based company Asplundh Tree Expert Co. was sued by Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative after an investigation by the Texas A&M Forest Service found out that sparks occurred after trees crashed into overhead electrical lines when the wildfire started 2 years ago.  Asplundh was contracted by the electric cooperative to trim trees and manage vegetation in Bastrop and 14 other counties.

More than 50 homeowners in Bastrop County sued Bluebonnet after their houses were destroyed by the wildfire.

Sadly, many homeowners who lost their properties in 2011 Bastrop wildfire are having difficulty in acquiring financial support from their insurers. If you or someone you know is being unfairly treated by your insurance company, contact the legal team at Williams Hart by calling 800-639-8460.
