Of all the injuries on a construction site, electrical injuries have the potential to be among the most severe. Electrical injuries can cause severe burns or heart arrhythmia, which can lead to cardiac arrest. Electric shock can cause brain damage or necessitate the amputation of a limb. In some cases, people working from heights can suffer injuries from falls in addition to electric shock injuries. In the most severe cases, electrocution and death are the result.
Sadly, these injuries are often preventable, and could have been prevented if the property owner or general contractor had taken simple steps to minimize the risk of shock. If you or a loved one has been injured by an electric shock, or if you have a lost a loved one to electrocution, a skilled attorney can be instrumental in helping you recover the compensation you need.

Owners and contractors at any building site must comply with a number of state regulations. Specifically, the owner of a property and the general contractor must take precautions to ensure that workers are not working near sources of electricity.
Owners must warn workers about unguarded sources of electricity. All portable generators must be properly grounded, and any defective insulation must be removed from the work site. In many instances, severe injuries are caused by a failure to adhere to these regulations.
Our law firm understands these laws and is able to build a strong case designed to maximize your compensation.
