Negligence: Property Damage-Lost Sale-Damages

Where homeowners brought an action against an electric cooperation for the alleged negligent installation of a transformer, claiming damages from a lost sale of their property after the buyers backed out, the judgment is affirmed because the owners did not show that the trial court misapplied the law in limiting the damages to the cost of repair, and the owners also failed to establish that they were entitled to the benefit of the bargain of the sale contract as consequential damages.

Judgment is affirmed.

Jungers v. Webster Electric Cooperative (MLW No. 73385/Case No. SD35582 – 15 pages) (Missouri Court of Appeals, Southern District, Bates, J.) Appealed from circuit court, Greene County, Brown, J. (Andrew Haynes McCue and Clayton Evan Gillette, Kansas City, Missouri, argued for appellant) (Steven Joel Blair, Springfield, for respondent).
