Electrocution Injury Lawyers

If someone else’s negligence results in you suffering an electrocution injury, they could be responsible for compensating you for your injury and losses. There are a number of ways you can suffer an electrocution; however, it is most commonly a result of exposed wiring or improper/inadequate safety warnings and falls under the law of Occupiers Liability.

The severity of an electrical injury depends on a number of factors relating to the electrical current flowing through a person’s body, including:

  • Voltage
  • Current Type
  • Current Strength
  • Length of Time You’re Exposed to the Current

Injuries From Electrocutions

Injuries from electrocutions can be disastrous. Electrocutions can result in a number of injuries, including:

  • Thermal Burns
  • Irregular Heartbeat
  • Muscle Contractions
  • Neurological Effects
  • Death

People suffering from serious electrocution injuries often have long and difficult journeys on the path to healing which can involve lengthy stays in hospitals and time off work. These losses can be claimed back from the person or business that caused your negligent electrocution injury.
