Phoenix, AZ (June 15, 2022) – Two people were killed in what appears to be an electrocution accident on a sports field in Phoenix on Wednesday, June 15th when, according to officials, they came into contact with in-ground electrical wiring.
First responders were dispatched to the scene, in the area of Peoria Avenue and 23rd Avenue, at about 6:00 a.m. Upon their arrival, they located the individuals lying in a grassy area of the field, both well beyond resuscitation.
The victims, a woman and a man, have both been identified by local police but their names are currently being withheld.
Power to the area is temporarily shut off and an investigation is underway.
We would like to offer our deepest condolences to the families of the deceased victims at this time.
Premises Liability in Arizona
Property managers and owners are liable for the safety of their visitors and guests. Individuals on the premises will come under one of three classifications:
- Invitees (commercial guests)
- Licensees (social guests)
- Trespassers (those not lawfully on the property)
Those who fall under the first two categories are permitted to be on the premises and are entitled to the highest degree of care. If you were injured on someone else’s property, you need to determine what, if any, duty of care you were owed. Once that has been established, you will be able to move forward with a premises liability claim.
In order to be valid, a premises liability case must have one or more of the below-listed elements. The more of these elements you can prove, the stronger it will be.
- The owner/manager of the property was aware of the danger and neglected to inform tenants or address the issue
- The owner/manager of the property is answerable for the risk or dangerous condition
- The owner/manager of the property was unaware of the hazard but, had they been conscientious of their guests’ safety, would have known about it
