Electrician Accident

Injuries from electrical shocks are relatively common. Around 7,270 people are injured by electrical shocks at work each year, with the majority of accidents involving electricians, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Injuries from electrical accidents can vary in severity, and fatalities can also occur. If you’re injured in an electrician accident, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your damages.

This is often through workers' compensation, but other parties may also be liable. To learn more about your legal rights and compensation options, contact Morgan & Morgan for a free, no-obligation case evaluation.

  • Common Causes of Electrical Accidents

    An electrician accident can be caused by several factors. Working with and around electricity comes with inherent risks. However, some electrician accidents are avoidable. If negligence is a factor in your personal injury case, contact Morgan & Morgan to help ensure your legal rights are protected. Some common causes of electrical accidents involving electricians often include the following.

    Malfunctioning Outlet or Switch

    As you may know, electricity comes from a box connected to the outlets and switches in your home by wires. If the box, the cables, or the outlet or switch is damaged or loose, the electricity is forced to flow through an unstable path and could end up shocking you when you touch a part of that path (i.e., the outlet or switch).

    Outdated Outlet

    In the past, most outlets were made with only two-prong holes. However, using three-prong holes is more common in current practice. The bottom hole makes it possible for an outdated outlet with no ground wire to be installed, which provides unstable currents the chance to pass into the ground instead of into your body. You may be shocked.

    Old or Faulty Appliances

    A defective appliance is usually so outdated that its circuitry is damaged, and electricity has difficulty passing through it. Electricity may ruin a defective appliance and shock you when you plug that appliance in.

    Electricity is Mixed with Water

    Water’s ions are highly conductive. If you attempt to use electricity while wet or near water, you might be shocked because the water conducts electricity efficiently from the air to your body.

  • Types of Injuries From an Electrical Accident

    Your injuries after coming into contact with electricity can range from a minor burn to a heart episode. Some of the injuries our attorneys often see in accidents involving electricians include,

    • Burns.
    • Heart attacks
    • Respiratory arrest
    • Seizures
    • Arrhythmia

    You may even experience broken bones. If electricity damages your bone structure or causes you to fall from any significant height, you can end up with broken or fractured bones.
