How Electrocution Accidents Happen

Electrocution occurs when any part of the body comes into contact with electricity. This causes an electrical pulse to move through the body, leading to an array of injuries, such as nerve damage, electrical burns, and shock to various organs, including the heart.

Most instances of electrocution occur when an individual accidentally touches or otherwise comes into contact with a source that conducts electricity.

Such materials include:

  • Electrical wires
  • Machinery
  • Metal
  • Power lines
  • Electrically charged water

Electrical currents are categorized according to voltage, or the degree of electricity. The higher the voltage, the greater the damage and the more likely the risk of permanent injury or death.

Who Is Most at Risk of Electrocution?

Statistically, people who work with or around electricity are at the greatest risk of being injured or killed in electrical accidents.

This includes the following types of workers:

  • Electricians
  • Power line workers
  • Construction workers
  • Roofers
  • Contractors and subcontractors
  • Laborers
  • Carpenters
  • Telecommunications workers
  • Industrial workers
  • Maintenance workers
  • Heating and air conditioning installers and repair technicians
  • Employees who work with electrical machinery

However, anyone who comes into contact with live electrical currents can be electrocuted. Children are also at risk, as they may not understand the dangers of touching electrical outlets, wires, and other electricity conductors.

If you were injured in a workplace accident, you could be entitled to workers’ compensation in addition to or in place of filing a personal injury claim. At Amanda Demanda Law Group, we can help you identify all possible sources of compensation and pursue the maximum amount you are entitled to receive following an electrical accident or injury.

How Electrocution Affects the Body

Electrocution has severe, far-ranging effects on the body. When the incident involves an electrical current with high voltage, the risk of death increases significantly.

Depending on various factors, including the amount of voltage, electrocution can lead to:

  • Burns
  • Skin damage
  • Disfigurement
  • Nerve damage
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Impaired function of bodily systems
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Memory problems
  • Abnormal heart contractions
  • Heart attack

These and other complications can have lasting, life-changing effects. Victims often require immediate medical attention and ongoing care. Some will suffer permanent impairment, causing them to become unable to return to work or earn a living for themselves or their families. In some cases, victims may even struggle to care for themselves and may require in-home assistance.

At Amanda Demanda Law Group, we help victims of electrical accidents fight for fair compensation for their damages. This includes financial restitution for medical expenses, lost income, pain and suffering, lost earning ability, and more. Our goal is to maximize the value of your claim so that you can begin to heal and move forward with your life.

Who Is Liable for an Electrical Accident?

Determining who is liable—or legally responsible—for an electrical accident can be challenging without the help of an experienced attorney. Often, these accidents have multiple underlying factors. At Amanda Demanda Law Group, our Miami electrocution lawyers conduct exhaustive investigations to determine exactly what happened and, most importantly, who is responsible for your injuries and damages.

Some potentially liable parties include:

  • Product Manufacturers: Manufacturers of defective electrical equipment or materials could be responsible for injuries resulting from the use of that equipment or materials. This is true even if the manufacturer issued a recall.
  • Employers: An employer might be responsible for an electrocution accident if it violated standard safety practices, failed to properly train employees, or otherwise put its workers at risk. If an injured worker qualifies for workers’ compensation, however, they cannot sue their employer for damages.
  • A Property Owner: If an electrocution injury occurred due to unsafe property conditions, such as building code violations or exposed electrical wiring, the injured victim and/or their family could bring a premises liability claim against the property owner.
  • An Individual: Some electrocution accidents are the result of a single individual’s negligent or wrongful conduct. When this is the case, you could have a claim against the person who caused the accident.

Our Miami electrocution attorneys can review the details of your claim to determine who is responsible for your injuries or the tragic death of your loved one. We leave no stone unturned and no possible avenue of compensation unexplored.
