Workers' compensation: Arc flash burn victim sues Tesla

A 37-year-old trainee electrician in California has filed a personal injury lawsuit against the automaker Tesla. This claim arose from severe burn injuries the man suffered in an arc flash incident in June 2017. Although he was in the employ of a contractor on the Tesla site and eligible for workers' compensation benefits through his employer, he alleges egregious negligence by Tesla because the car manufacturer refused to cut the electricity to the equipment on which the man had to work. He asserts Tesla wanted to avoid slowing down the production by isolating power.
