Electricity is a common element in our homes, our workplaces and almost any public place we visit. Property owners, product designers and manufacturers and any other party which may be responsible for an accidental electrocution typically go to great lengths to prevent such accidents. But, when accidental electrocutions happen the injuries can be very serious or fatal:
- Burns — Electrical accidents can create incredibly severe burn injuries that may require extensive medical care.
- Heart attack — An electrical shock can easily disrupt a normal heartbeat and cause cardiac arrest. Accidents of this type can easily result in the loss of life.
Electrical accidents can happen in almost any situation where electricity is present. Some common scenarios include:
- Contacting an overhead power line while in a bucket truck or crane
- Defective products
- Improper residential or commercial wiring
- Frayed wiring
- On a construction site
- In the workplace
- CTA track accidents (contacting the third rail)
If you or a loved one has been injured in an electrocution accident, you may be facing a lengthy and costly recovery. It is important that the party responsible for your injuries compensates you fully for your injuries. Our attorneys can help you build the strong case that you need to be able to effectively pursue the compensation you need.
