Electric Shock Injuries
Electric shock injuries on construction sites generally come in three forms: contact with electrical arcs, direct contact with current and contact with the flame from an electrical arc. The extent of the injuries depends on several factors, including the type of current, the voltage and the duration of contact with the current or flame
Electrical shock injuries can have devastating consequences. Victims can suffer burn injuries, cardiac arrest, scarring, disfigurement, muscle and nerve damage, and even fall into comas. All too often electrocution is the result, leaving family members with grief and financial hardship.
Workers’ Compensation Claims
Many electric shock injuries occur at work, which means that victims can pursue workers’ compensation benefits to cover medical bills and a portion of lost wages. In some cases, however, it may be possible to pursue a personal injury lawsuit as well. Our lawyers are experienced in both workers’ compensation and personal injury law. We can help you pursue all potential sources of compensation.
