High-voltage electricity is in every neighborhood, in every building and at nearly every construction site. Because of the risk of injury or death from accidental electrocution, power companies, landlords, construction contractors and building owners are required to follow strict safety standards. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.
Electrocution accidents happen for a variety of reasons, in a variety of places. Sometimes, electrical equipment is improperly wired or maintained, or workers are not given proper training in the safe operation of the equipment. In other cases, the owners of the facility housing the equipment are negligent in the way the facility and its electrical components are maintained. No matter what the reason, people who come in contact with electricity can suffer serious burns and lasting injuries to their nervous systems. In the worst cases, death can result.
Due to the time limits imposed by the state and federal government, it is essential that you act quickly to ensure you do not waive your right to compensation for your electrocution injury. Gerling Law’s attorneys will thoroughly investigate your case to determine who is at fault and how the injuries could have been avoided. Our attorneys will also consider how the injuries will affect future quality of life and the cost of any additional care that will be needed to ensure that the compensation received is fair.
