Whether it’s on the job or a household accident, electrocution can be one of the most serious injuries a person can experience. Injuries sustained from electrocution range from an unpleasant tingling sensation to severe organ damage and even death. That is why it is extremely important for power companies and construction sites to follow safety protocol for their work. Unfortunately, however, best practices are not always followed. As a result, people sometimes sustain very serious injuries due to electrocution.
If you or a loved one experienced injury or death due to an electrocution, you do not have to suffer in silence. An experienced attorney can help you figure out what next steps to take to ensure that any negligent parties are held accountable.
If you were injured on a construction site, for example, you may already know that you are eligible for workers compensation. However, you may be entitled to additional settlement money if your company or a parts manufacturer neglected to follow adequate safety protocols. An attorney can help you navigate your state’s workers compensation system and figure out what other compensation you may be able to obtain. If you are struggling due to medical bills or lost wages, an attorney can help.
If you were injured in another way, for example due to a downed power line, an attorney can help you fight for justice. Power companies have a responsibility to keep users safe to the best of their ability. If they were negligent, they should be held accountable.
