There has been another lawsuit filed against Pacific Gas & Electric Co. involving last year’s deadly pipeline explosion in San Bruno, Calif. The suit was filed in San Mateo County Superior Court by the personal representative of James Franco, who died from injuries suffered in the September blast that killed eight people and destroyed 38 homes. It’s alleged that poor maintenance and construction resulted in an “inevitable explosion” of the PG&E gas pipeline. The San Francisco-based company already faces dozens of lawsuits from victims’ families and people who allege they were impacted by the inferno. Eric Laughlin, a lawyer with Hamilton, Laughlin, Barker, Johnson & Watson, located in Topeka, Kan., represents the Franco estate.

Wonderful to work with

Beasley Allen did a great job with my case. They were wonderful to work with. They were available by phone when I needed them, treated me with the utmost respect and worked hard on my behalf. If a need arises in the future, I would definitely call on them again.
