Electricity is a necessity. From powering our homes, offices, and communication, it is a utility we absolutely cannot live without. But because it is always present, it is easy to forget just how dangerous electric currents can be.
When building owners, landlords, and power companies don’t adhere to safety regulations, electrical accidents can happen anywhere – in the home, office, at a store, or anywhere in between. If you work on construction sites where wires are exposed, electrocution is an occupational hazard.
If you have come into direct contact with an electrical current, is important to see a doctor immediately. Electric shock can affect the heart, nerves, and brain, and it can also cause severe burns, or even death. If you or someone you love has been injured, be sure to consult an experienced electrical accident attorney. Recovering from an injury can be a painful process. We are here to help you understand the details of your case, protect your rights, and pursue compensation for your suffering.
