Electrical Accidents on Construction Sites
Every year, more than 400 electrical accidents occur on job sites throughout
the United States resulting in
wrongful death. Thousands more sustain serious brain and spinal cord injury due to electrical
accidents at the workplace.
In many cases, this is due to one of the following:
- Defective electrical wiring
- Defective equipment
- Lack of maintenance
- Lack of safety regulation enforcement
Electrical accidents include burns, electric shock, fall injuries from
electrocution and death. Electric shock can affect external and internal
organs and often require long term care and treatment from a skilled team
of medical professionals.

Electrical Accidents and Serious Injuries
Workers who have been injured in electrical accidents caused by the negligence
of another party may be compensated for their monetary losses with
workers' compensation. In many cases, however, workers compensation benefits are insufficient
to cover the damages sustained as a result of the accident. Construction
companies are obligated to provide warning and protection against accidental
electrocution on a construction site.
In addition, power companies are responsible to protect workers from overhead
power lines and other dangers. Electrocution claims involving construction
sites can involve many different liable parties. It is crucial for your
attorney to have a thorough and extensive background in construction site
personal injury cases so that your claim is properly handled.
