Tort/Negligence – Wrongful Death – Duty of Care – Co-Worker – Cable Repairmen – Power Line (access required)

Hayes v. Time Warner Cable, Inc. While attempting to install a downed cable line at night, plaintiff’s decedent asked his less experienced co-worker to retrieve a metal “lay-up” pole from decedent’s truck; the co-worker brought the pole back and handed it to decedent, and electricity from an overhead power line reached the pole and electrocuted decedent. Plaintiff has failed to show that the co-worker owed her decedent a duty of care.
