PITTSBURGH – A Lewis Run company is alleged to have improperly performed electrical work at a property that was later damaged by fire.
State Farm Fire & Casualty Co., as subrogree of Linda Davis, filed a complaint on Nov. 27, 2017, in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania against D.S. Groff Electric LLC alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, Davis' Rixford property was damaged by fire in July 2016. The plaintiff alleges the defendant improperly performed work at the property.
The plaintiff holds D.S. Groff Electric LLC responsible because the fire damages allegedly were a result of the defendant's negligence, which included a failure to use a proper receptacle per National Electric Code standards and a failure to properly inspect and/or test the work before and after it was performed.
The plaintiff seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount of more than $300,000, delay damages, court costs and any further relief the court grants. It is represented by Daniel J. de Luca of de Luca Levine LLC in Blue Bell.
