Am I Covered When I Dig on the Site Where the Electric Company Marked Safe in Tampa?
We’ve all seen commercials on TV that warn us that we should not dig in areas that we’re not familiar with. We should contact either a special number or the electrical company to come out and mark the area where the electrical wires are buried. Sometimes individuals will, despite taking that step, that they will get injured while digging in an area that they’ve been told is safe and if that in fact happens, you should contact someone after receiving appropriate medical care, contact someone competent to investigate those type of accidents. You should keep any information you have about the contact you made, about the individuals that came out, about where the marks were made, what you were told in terms of where was safe to dig and record by photographing, making notes, anything relevant to what you were told a head of time and also about your injury that occurred.
