CHICAGO — A woman is suing ComEd and Comcast Cable Corporation for allegedly taking insufficient measures to prevent injuries, liability and negligence, after her husband and father of her three children died of electrocution.
Jeanette Zulauf, independent administrator of the estate of Robert J. Zulauf, filed a complaint on May 26 in Cook County Circuit Court, alleging the defendants failed to properly secure and insulate wires, causing Zulauf to suffer fatal injuries from being electrocuted on Nov. 8, 2016. The complaint alleges he was electrocuted, "instantly burst into flames and died."
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount greater than $50,000 plus any further relief this court grants. She is represented by Stephan D. Blandin and Jared M. Wise of Romanucci & Blandin LLC in Chicago.
