Landmark $38 Million Settlement with LADWP Inspires Change

In 2021, a family was asleep in their Panorama City home when they heard a loud noise outside at 2am. The daughter went to their backyard to investigate and came into contact with a downed power line that was still energized. Her father ran to save her. Both were fatally electrocuted. To make matters worse, the mother witnessed the tragedy.

This horrific incident highlights the importance of what we do here at the Homampour Law Firm. Had the power lines been properly maintained by LADWP, this would have never happened. Thanks to the work of our attorneys Danielle Lincors and Arash Homampour and co-counsel Frish Law Group, LADWP agreed to update 1600 of the city’s most deteriorated power lines to ensure this never happens again, and secured a $38 million dollar settlement.

Our law firm’s unwavering dedication to justice displays how determined action can drive real, positive change, and make our city safer— one case at a time.

“We’ve not only highlighted the preventable causes behind this tragedy but also inspired a thorough revamp of the DWP’s power pole inspection program,” says Homampour. This includes immediate action on the most dangerous power poles. In addition to these vital repairs, DWP is launching a widespread safety campaign – sending out precautionary notices to thousands of homes and businesses near high-risk poles ensuring everyone in our community is informed and prepared.
