Electrocution accidents & electric shock injuries.
Electric shock injuries can be extremely painful and can cause lifelong injuries. Call us today at 1-877-405-4313 for a free consultation, and let us explain the options available to you and your family moving forward.
Electrocution can be defined as conduction of electrical current through a person’s body causing injury or death. Many times, these types of injuries are attributable to negligence – especially when the accident occurs at work or on a construction site.
Electrical accidents often occur at the workplace due to unsafe working conditions. For example, if an employer fails to run electrical cables in a safe manner or does not adhere to strict lockout-tagout procedures, they put their employees at risk of an electrical accident.
Electrocution accidents can occur in a variety of ways, including contact with power lines, contact with an energized source, faulty wiring, and more. If it can be shown that someone’s negligence contributed to or caused the electrical accident, the victim and/or their family may be owed compensation.
At Rasansky Law Firm, our job is to help victims get every penny they deserve following a personal injury or wrongful death accident.
If left untreated, severe electric shock can lead to serious health consequences such as:
- Hearing loss
- Memory loss
- Respiratory failure
- Renal failure
- Wrongful death
- And more…
Electrical accidents can cause extensive injuries.
An electrocution injury can affect the body in numerous ways. For example, it may affect the heart and cardiovascular system by causing asystole, also known as a “flat line.” Alternatively, it could cause ventricular fibrillation which essentially refers to disorganized and useless fluttering of the ventricles found in the heart.
Electrocution can also cause respiratory injury. The lungs aren’t equipped to handle large electrical currents flowing through them. At the same time, electricity passing through the chest muscles causes tetany of the said muscles, often resulting in respiratory arrest.
Electrocution also typically affects the central nervous system, resulting in cell and nerve death. It’s usually said that any form of serious electric shock results in some degree of spinal cord injury, so this must always be included in your medical evaluation.
Most electrocution and electric shock injuries happen while at work or due to unsafe premises. As a result, you may be able to sue under a premises liability or work injury claim. No matter how the accident occurred, as long as we’re able to show that your injuries were the result of negligence on someone else’s part, you may be able to seek damages in order to pay for your treatment and care going forward.
