Many American workers are electrocuted on the job and experience fatal work-related injuries caused by electric shocks every year. Electrical accidents account for one-tenth of all job-related deaths--especially in the construction industry. The damage that can be caused by exposure to an electrical shock includes burns, heart damage, and cellular damage.
If you or a loved one has been injured due to electrocution, Inman & Tourgee is ready to help you recover the compensation and benefits you deserve. Our firm has recovered millions of dollars on behalf of our clients, so we understand what it takes to get the results you want.
CAUSES OF ELECTRIC SHOCKS
When the human body comes into contact with any source of voltage, it can send an electric shock coursing through the body. There are two types of electric shock: direct current and alternating current. Direct currents cause involuntary muscular contractions, while alternating currents cause heart complications. Regardless of the type of electrical shock you may receive, electric shocks cause severe negative effects on your whole body.
Electric shock injuries often occur when:
- Electricity travels through water
- Electricity jumps or arcs from one object to another
- Wiring short-circuits
- Construction equipment falls
