Electrical Accidents From Dangerous Products or Workplace Hazards
Most electric shock accidents occur on the job, through contact with overhead power lines, underground cables, exposed wiring and electrical equipment:
- Industrial plant workers
- Utility workers and linemen
- Roofers and construction workers
- Heavy equipment operators (cranes)
Full Compensation for Electrocution or Shock Injuries
Electric current can cause acute trauma, such as amputation of extremities, third-degree burns and cardiac arrest, and aftereffects such as brain damage (cognitive impairment, memory loss), neurological damage (numbness, paralysis, spasms) and heart arrhythmia. High-voltage current is often fatal or causes secondary injuries when the person loses consciousness and falls.
Our attorneys have sued machinery manufacturers, utilities, subcontractors and property owners for design defects or unsafe conditions. We also handle all aspects of workers’ compensation claims. We are committed to maximizing compensation for medical bills, ongoing care, lost wages, disability, disfigurement and pain and suffering, and for wrongful death.
