Electrocution Accident Lawyer
If you’re looking for a shock or electrocution accident lawyer, you or someone you love has probably endured trauma recently. High-voltage electrocution injuries can result in long-term health challenges including traumatic brain injuries (TBI), burns, respiratory and lung damage, and muscle and heart damage. In some cases, even a minor electric shock can cause serious injury with long-term consequences. That’s why every shock and electrocution incident must be taken seriously. An electrocution accident lawyer can help you take action and move toward full and fair compensation.
About Electrocution and Shock Injuries
Shock and electrocution injuries can happen anywhere, but most of the time they happen in the workplace, especially construction sites. Construction workers frequently use equipment that may not be appropriately grounded. The risk of serious injury when using this equipment is multiplied when negligent employees or supervisors or dangerous conditions are added to the situation.
Another person’s negligence can be the primary cause in shock and electrocution cases that happen off the construction site as well. For instance, a landlord may manage a wiring project without proper knowledge, training or certification, which can expose renters to the danger of shock or fire because of poor electrical wiring. Other examples include pedestrians who are exposed to power lines or unsafe overhead lighting, or poorly designed appliances. Any of these can cause electrocution or shock injuries.
