Electrical Injury Attorneys

Electricity can be as dangerous as it is useful. This is particularly true in the workplace, where employees may prove uniquely vulnerable to electrical risks. Data analyzed by the Electrical Safety Foundation International (ESFI) indicates that 154 workers died due to electrical injuries in 2016. Every year, workers are killed or suffer severe injuries, with the effects lasting long after they've left the hospital.

Where Do Electrical Injuries Occur?

Whether indoors, outdoors, in the workplace, or in some other commercial setting, electrical systems carry significant risks. The ESFI report revealed that a majority of fatal injuries occur in the private sector, with 53% of electrical fatalities involving the construction industry in 2016. Other common sources of electrical injuries include:

  • Improperly installed electrical systems
  • Frayed or otherwise damaged cords
  • Defective appliances
  • Water conduction
  • Low-hanging power lines

Common Electrical Injuries

While electric shock and electrocution are the most apparent forms of electrical injuries, these incidents can prompt several other forms of suffering. In construction, for example, contact with electrical energy often leads to significant falls. These, in turn, can cause concussions, broken bones, and even severed spinal cords. Exposure to electricity may also result in burns.

Even after the victim has been treated for physical symptoms, mental and emotional issues can linger for years. The shocking nature of these injuries can lead to post-traumatic stress disorder, with memories of the accident possibly leading to heart palpitations and a sense of fear or dread. Victims injured in the workplace may find it all but impossible to handle previous job duties.
