Electrical Shock & Burn Injuries
Have you been injured?
Take Action Today!
Most people have experienced an electric shock at some point in their lives. This is the type of shock that comes when you experience static electricity from touching an ungrounded appliance or other household item, or when working with low-voltage batteries. In most instances, people recover rather quickly from electrical accidents at home. However, electrical accidents on the job can be a different story — especially when that job involves working at a construction site. Most electrical fatalities, for example, occur at work. Whether at home or at work, a serious electrical accident can cause significant burns, brain injury, cardiac arrest, and respiratory failure.
At Proner & Proner, our New York City injury lawyers help clients who were injured in electrical accidents, or whose loved one died as a result of electrical shock. The attorneys at our firm know how to build strong cases for maximum compensation, whether a client was injured at work on a construction site, at home, or in a public place such as a store or restaurant. Contact our NYC personal injury attorneys at their law office to schedule a free consultation about your case.
Many clients ask what they can expect to receive if a personal injury case is successful. In general, victims of electrical shock on the job can expect to receive compensation from workers’ compensation for their medical bills and modest living expenses while they recover. If individuals are able to file a personal injury claim, they may receive more from a third party injury claim, a product liability claim, or other types of personal injury claims. The lawyers at Proner & Proner will evaluate your electrical shock accident case and advise you about your legal options.
Defective hand tools, extension cords, and other consumer electrical products are usually the cause of electrical burns and injuries at home. Workers injured by electrocution on the job are more likely to work in certain industries than in others. Not surprisingly, electrical workers and linemen are the most vulnerable. Those who work trimming trees from buckets, as well as cherry pickers, are also at risk from electrical lines.
Other vulnerable workers include:
Of course, employees in any industry can be injured or killed by an electrical shock, which is why the New York City electrical shock & burn injury lawyers at Proner & Proner know how to build strong cases no matter where the accident occurred.
