Some are unable to return to work because of their injuries. If you’ve suffered from an electric shock or electrocution, you may be entitled to seek financial compensation from the person or company responsible for your accident. Compensation may include coverage for your pain and suffering, all medical expenses related to the accident, lost wages, and lost earning potential.

What Causes Electric Shock Injuries or Electrocution?

Exposure to any source of electricity can cause electric shock, both at home or at work. Seemingly small hazards, like contact with a broken lightbulb, are sometimes enough to cause electrocution. Work-related accidents involving electrocution are most common in the construction industry. Construction workers may be electrocuted if they encounter a power line, of if they work with electrical lines that are not up to safety standards. Faulty wiring at home or on the job can also lead to an electrocution accident.

The most common causes of electrocution are:

  • Work-related exposure
  • Lightning strikes
  • Chewing or biting electrical cords
  • Electrical appliance contact with water
  • Sticking metal objects into electrical sockets
  • Contact with exposed wiring, appliances
  • High voltage power lines
  • Mechanical failure

Consequences of Electrocution Injuries

Contact with an electrical current can cause devastating injuries, including damage to the tissues, nerves, and muscles. Electrocution can stop the heart (cardiac arrest), cause severe skin burns, and lead to internal organ damage. Symptoms depend on a variety of factors, including the type and strength of voltage causing the electrocution, how long the victim was in contact with an electrical current, how the electricity moved throughout the body, and the victim’s overall health.
