Electrical work leads to lead-exposure lawsuit

By Joe Torke | Mar 3, 2016


CHICAGO — An employee of an electrical contractor and the employee's wife are suing a utility and others, claiming the electrical worker suffered from lead poisoning as a result of the defendants' negligence.

Anthony Wasielewski and Judy Wasielewski are suing Commonwealth Edison Company, Exelon Energy Delivery Company LLC, Exelon Corpororation and Exelon Business Services Company LLC, alleging an unsafe work environment.

The Wasielewskis sued on Feb. 25 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging that the defendants did not give workers proper safety equipment to handle lead.

The plaintiffs allege that, prior to undergoing a blood test on May 13, 2014, Anthony Wasielewski worked on a Commonwealth Edison project to install, remove and splice utility lines. After the blood test, the suit says, Anthony Wasielewski learned he had a toxic level of lead in his blood, which the plaintiffs blame on the defendants due to an alleged failure to provide proper instructions or equipment to handle lead.

The plaintiffs seek the following: compensation for excess of $50,000. They are represented by Charles Cannon of Mahoney Crowe & Goldrick, P.C. in Chicago in Illinois.
