Newport Gas Outage Update

The RI Division of Public Utilities and Carriers (DPUC) and the Federal Department of Transportation issued reports in October 2019 which concluded that the gas outage in Newport, RI was the result of negligence on the part of National Grid, National Grid LNG and Algonquin Gas Transmission Company. If you suffered a gas outage you should contact our office as you may be able to recover damages. With the new report from the DPUC and the Department of Transportation Brian Cunha & Associates Law Office has recently filed an amended class action complaint in the Federal Court for the District of RI against National Grid, National Grid LNG and Algonquin Gas Transmission Company. The complaint requests compensation for the residents of Aquidneck Island who suffered a gas outage. If you would like to participate in the class action call our office.
