Electrocution Injury Compensation | Causes
Electrocution is an extremely serious injury that can have devastating effects on victims. We believe that if your electric shock or electrocution injury was caused by a negligent party, it is critical to hold that third party accountable. Common causes of electrocution accidents include: faulty wiring, negligent maintenance, negligent property owners, dangerous electrical products, and downed power lines.
Electrocution Injury Compensation | Liability
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, be injured while digging in an area that they’ve been told is safe. If that in fact happens, you should contact someone after receiving appropriate medical care. 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.
We perform an extensive investigation to preserve evidence and provide the expert witnesses necessary to win your case. Our firm is ready to take on the insurance companies and fully litigate your interests if we are not able to resolve your personal injury matter out of court. If you or a loved one has suffered an electrical injury or was severely electrocuted, contact our Tampa Personal Injury Lawyers at Morgenstern & Herd, PLLC to arrange a free consultation.
