Despite its presence in everyday life, electrical currents are extremely dangerous and unprotected contact can result in catastrophic injuries and even death. Electrocution injuries often include:
- Shutdown of internal organs;
- Severe burns and soft tissue destruction;
- Local paralysis or reduced use of the affected limb; and
- Serious permanent nervous system damage.
While most electrocution injuries occur on construction worksites, they can happen anywhere and to anyone. Common causes of such injures include:
- Contact with power lines;
- Failure to obtain a work permit and/or shut down power lines;
- Failure to comply with regulations pertaining to power line clearance;
- Failure to comply with manufacturer's instruction regarding electric devices;
- Improperly grounded wires or electrical systems; and
- Unsafe or overloaded extension cords and electrical sources.
Most electrical shock accidents are entirely preventable. If you suffered an injury due to electrocution, you may be entitled to collect damages.
