About

About Jeffrey H. Feldman

Jeffrey H. Feldman is a renowned personal injury lawyer who focuses primarily on electrocution cases throughout the U.S.  He has been protecting families whose lives have been devastated by electric shock and electrocution fatalities for over 35 years.

Jeffrey has tried more electrocution cases than most other injury lawyers in the country. He’s also secured several multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements on behalf of his clients, many who have lost loved ones in electrocution accidents.

The driving force behind Jeffrey’s success is truly making a difference in the lives of his clients, as well as preventing injuries and deaths. He does so by uncovering every act of negligence and bad decision that power companies made leading up to the accident cases he litigates — and holding them accountable for hurting and killing innocent people. This sends a message to power companies that put profits over safety by hitting them where it most hurts — in their pocket books. It also helps institute new industry safety practices that are designed to protect the public.

Jeffrey’s incredible intelligence and attention to detail is founded in law, engineering and medicine. As a child, Jeffrey was exposed to groundbreaking advances in the medical field: His father, a doctor, had a fellowship with Albert Sabin and helped develop and produce the Polio vaccine. When Jeffrey decided to become a trial lawyer, he naturally gravitated to cases that had complexity and required medical knowledge.

In his first electrocution case more than 30 years ago (Estate of Caroline Marie Bell v. Detroit Edison Company), Jeff had the honor of representing the family of a 5-year old girl who was tragically killed when she came into contact with a down power line in rural Michigan, which was hidden under leaves after a storm.

As a result of the multi-million dollar verdict Jeffrey secured in Bell v. Edison, a public safety campaign was instituted, where a famous NBA basketball player warned children, “Look up for power lines!”

Notable Cases

Jeffrey has tried numerous cases to completion in the state and federal court systems, with a tremendous record of success. While Jeffrey’s home base is Farmington Hills, Michigan, he has handled electrocution cases and various other injury cases in many states throughout the country. 

Most of Jeffrey’s largest settlements are “confidential,” and include numerous multi-million dollar electrocution, burn injury, malpractice and product liability cases. Examples of Jeff’s noteworthy settlement and trial results in electrocution cases include:
