Types of Electric Shock Injuries

Exposure to high voltage electricity can be fatal. However, even being exposed to a lower voltage can cause severe injuries. Toddlers and adolescents are at the greatest risk of electric shock injuries in the U.S. However, construction site workers are also at particular risk of electrocution because of the machinery they use and other hazardous conditions in their working environment. Employers must provide adequate safety training and equipment to help prevent an electric shock accident.

Injuries from electric shocks include:

  • Brain damage
  • Nerve damage
  • Neuropathy
  • Severe burns
  • Internal organ damage
  • Vision loss
  • Heart damage
  • Seizures

The higher the voltage, the more serious the injuries will be. Furthermore, cardiac arrest, respiratory failure, and central nervous system damage could result in death. Victims who survive may suffer emotional and psychological problems, such as depression or anxiety, as well as changes in personality and temperament.

Understanding Liability for Electrocution Accidents

There may be several factors that cause an electric shock at a construction site. Malfunctioning machinery, exposed power lines, defective equipment, and faulty electric wiring could all cause serious harm to construction workers. If you did not receive adequate training, or your employer failed to fix a hazardous condition, you may be able to pursue compensation for your injuries. In addition, manufacturing companies could be held responsible for your electric shock injuries if a defective machine caused the accident.

Depending on the situation, you may be able to receive compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other economic and non-economic damages. While you have the option of seeking a settlement through your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance, you may be able to file a third-party liability claim if someone unrelated to your work caused the accident. An investigation will be necessary to determine who is responsible for your injuries. Our team of San Francisco personal injury lawyers will use evidence such as police reports, pictures of the scene, and witness statements to build your case.
