Electrocution accidents can be devastating.
Many electrocution accidents occur in the workplace, and account for approximately 1,000 deaths in the U.S. every year. Power lines, faulty wiring, and appliances that malfunction are at the top of the list for causes, and construction workers, engineers, utility employees, and electricians are at the most risk at work for electrocution accidents. Companies that employ any workers whose jobs put them at risk, must provide the proper training, require protective gear, and have safety procedures and regulations in place in order to keep employees safe. A workplace electrical accident can be especially complicated to pursue legally because it involves workers’ compensation, liability, insurance, safety regulations, and sometimes statutes of limitation are a factor. In some cases, classroom training needs to take place to ensure work safety, and there should be written manuals that clarify safety procedures. Having an experienced attorney who understands the intricacies of these cases can give you peace of mind in knowing that your case is being handled and that you will receive the very best settlement possible.
