Who Can Be Held Accountable for Electrical Injuries?

Utility Companies: Electrical injuries often result when the victim comes in contact with a power line that was not properly installed to protect the public from danger. Utility companies have a legal responsibility to protect the general public from wires and other high voltage electrical equipment. If a power line runs too close to a house or a transformer is not properly secured, the utility may be held liable for compensating injury victims. Leading causes of workplace electrocutions include contact (often with metal ladders) with overhead power lines and contact with wiring, transformers or other electrical components.
Land Owner: Often when an electrical injury or electrocution occurs on another person’s property, the area of law known as premises liability will apply. In a nutshell, this may mean the injured victim is able to recover compensation from the landowner, or the person who has control of the land. For example, many electric shock and electrocutions take place on construction sites. When that property is being worked on, the general contractor normally manages the property, not the landowner.
Other Unknown parties: Other entities that may be liable for an electrical injury or electrocution include construction companies, power equipment manufacturers and subcontractors.
Products Liability: Machines, tools, appliances and light fixtures also are often involved. Electrical injury and electrocution may also occur as the result of a defective product. Products can be defective due to manufacturing flaws, design defects or inadequate warnings. This is a complex area of the law.
This is why it is important to consult LomberaLegal where you will select a qualified personal injury attorney to investigate your case and prosecute it aggressively.

Injuries
A powerful electrical shock can cause serious damage that goes deeper than a flesh burn. A powerful electrical current passing through a body can cause internal burns to vital organs, permanent heart and brain damage, or death.
Electrical current exposure can result in a wide range of injuries, including skin burns as well as internal burns that can cause swelling and compression of the arteries, cutting off blood supply to the limbs. It can cause deadly abnormal heart rhythms, kidney damage and even cataracts.
In some cases, an electrical jolt can cause a bad fall, resulting in dislocations or broken bones. Nerve damage to the spinal cord can result in paralysis, numbness, chronic pain or erectile dysfunction. Electrical damage to the nerves and brain can manifest in seizures, brain hemorrhages, short-term memory loss, personality changes and difficulty sleeping.
Lawsuits

If you, or a loved one, have been the victim of an electrical accident that you believe was caused by someone else’s negligence, you may be able to obtain compensation for your damages.
These damages act to compensate the victim or their family for past, present and future medical treatment, lost wages, physical impairment, disfigurement, and pain suffering, and mental anguish.
Litigation is often the only way to ensure that you receive the compensation that you are entitled to. Please contact LomberaLegal  attorneys immediately regarding your injuries. We will make arrangements for your medical bills to be paid out of any future settlement, which will allow you to focus on your recovery instead of your medical bills.

The most often asked question regarding personal injury lawsuits is, “What is the value of my claim?” This is dependent on a variety of factors; such as previous verdicts, cost of medical bills, type of injury, disability rating given to you by your physician, liability of the person who injured you and the amount of your lost wages.

At LomberaLegal, we have years of experience handling accident cases and we can help you achieve the largest settlement possible. We handle each case as if it were going to trial.  This is important because Insurance companies know that law firms, such as LomberaLegal, will not take the easy way out and settle your case for less than what it is worth.
