Electrocution Injury

Electrocution Injuries

Serving the Injured & Families Who Have Lost a Loved One in Kent & Surrounding Areas

Almost 40% of all construction injuries and deaths are due to electrocution. But electrocutions are not limited to the construction site. They also happen at home from the use of defective household appliances and power tools.

Construction Site Electrocution Injuries

Construction injury electrocutions most often occur when a worker is inadvertently exposed to power lines or other electrical sources. Sometimes, cranes and other high profile construction equipment may come into contact with overhead power lines that may not be readily noticeable. In other instances, workers may come into contact with power lines that are buried, and thus not seen until it is too late.

Construction site electrocution accidents can be horrifying, as victims can experience severe burns or death within seconds. These accidents call for an immediate investigation into the causes and facts surrounding the accident.

  • Did those responsible take proper precautions to ensure that workers knew of the existence and location of power lines?
  • Were proper safety and work site guidelines undertaken?
  • Was defective equipment involved?

These and other important questions are critical to the investigation of a construction site electrocution accident. In many cases, there is more than one person or company liable for the accident. In these cases, we seek to hold everyone who contributed to causing the accident accountable for the injuries or death suffered.

Compensation for Injuries

When a worker suffers an electrocution on the job site, he or she is usually eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. The worker may also be entitled to compensation from third parties other than the worker’s employer such as other contractors or the makers of defective equipment. By carefully investigating a case, we can identify these potentially responsible parties.
