Electrical Shock Injuries and Their Aftermath


Electrical shock injuries can happen anywhere - at home or in the workplace. And, electrical injuries can cause significant physical trauma or even death. Serious injuries like these can be both physically and financially difficult to recover from.

Your injuries may be exacerbated further by the stress of trying to pay your medical bills, or trying to manage your finances when you have to take time off work to heal from your injuries. If your accident was caused by someone else's negligence or carelessness, however, you may be able to bring a personal injury claim against the responsible party.

More about electrical shock injuries

Electric shock accidents, depending on their severity, can result in devastating injuries, including:

  • Burns
  • Catastrophic injury
  • Amputations
  • Loss of vision and/or hearing
  • Death (by electrocution)

Injuries of this type can take a heavy psychological toll in addition to a physical one. Many injury victims may be unable to return to work for a long while - if at all - and are unable to make a living during the healing process. Some patients suffer permanent disability. Between pain and suffering, medical expenses, and the inability to work, many patients find themselves overwhelmed both emotionally and financially.

However, with a personal injury claim, an injury victim has the right to recover damages and losses, including:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical expenses
  • Physical therapy and rehabilitation costs
  • Doctor visits and medication
  • Pain and suffering
  • Other associated losses

How can my personal injury attorney help?

Every situation and claim is unique, so your legal options would depend on the circumstances surrounding your accident and injury. However, here's some general information.

If your electrical shock injury was caused by someone else's carelessness or negligence, you likely have grounds to file a personal injury claim to recover compensation. Examples might include faulty or open wiring. Or, you may have suffered electrocution due to a defective product. Examples can include things like malfunctioning hair dryers.

You may be able to file a premises liability claim if you were injured via electric shock when you were a visitor on someone else's property (as a guest, visitor, or shopper). These types of claims are filed when injuries are caused by unsafe conditions on someone else's property. When someone fails to protect you from things like live wires or dangerous electricity, they can be liable for your injuries.

Finally, if your loved one died of electrocution, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuitagainst the accountable party. If the fatal injury happened while your loved one was at work, you may be entitled to death benefits under workers' compensation.

Electrical shock injuries can cause physical, financial, and emotional damage.
