After a lengthy legal battle against PG&E, a San Jose mother has finally settled the wrongful death lawsuit. Lisa Bernstein lost her daughter in a fiery crash with company’s driver. Lisa Bernstein was so heartbroken that she actually hauled the twisted carcass of her daughter’s truck up to PG&E headquarters in San Francisco.
Mrs. Bernstein says her first priority was to hold PG&E accountable for the 2006 crash that killed 20-year-old Mary Bernstein. PG&E refused last month to support legislation to make companies more accountable for errant drivers. Under the terms of the settlement agreement, PG&E must enter a judgment for $5 million. This mother’s goal was to make PG&E “take safety a little more seriously”.
