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

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.
