Common Causes of Electrocution Accidents

Electrocutions are one of the top causes of construction site fatalities in the private industry; however, it is not only construction workers that are at risk. Any electrical equipment or wiring can quickly turn deadly if improperly installed, poorly maintained, or exposed to the elements. Contact our office to speak with an experienced Houston electrocution injury lawyer. Leading causes of electrocution accidents include:
  • Equipment malfunction
  • Exposed electrical components
  • Defective product
  • Improper training
  • Faulty wiring
  • Inadequate supervision
  • Downed power lines

Injuries that Can Result From Electrical Shock

The extent of damage that can occur from an electrical shock may vary. Life-threatening electrocutions tend to happen when there is a high voltage or a strong current. You should always seek emergency medical treatment following electrocution. Electric shock can do internal damage that may lay undetected without treatment. Injuries that may result from electrocution:
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Muscle pain or seizures
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmias)
  • Internal organ damage
  • Severe burns
  • Loss of consciousness

Workplace Electrocution Accidents

Electrocution accidents most frequently occur at worksites. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), electrocutions are one of “Construction’s Fatal Four.”  The four leading causes of construction worker fatalities include:
  • Falls
  • Struck by object
  • Electrocutions
  • Caught-in/between
Many of these accidents are preventable. OSHA estimates that by eliminating the fatal four, nearly 600 American lives could be saved each year. Electrocutions at workplaces commonly occur because of regulatory and safety standards violations. If you are electrocuted on the job, you need an attorney who will hold negligent parties accountable.

Electrocutions Caused by Defective Products

Faulty wiring, inadequate warnings, and defective design can all have devastating consequences. Defective products that cause electrical shock must be removed from the shelves, but injury victims must come forward to get these products recalled. If you are electrocuted because of a defective product, you deserve compensation. Our Houston electrocution injury lawyers can help you obtain compensation for your injuries by holding manufacturers responsible for a product that causes harm. If you suffer an electrocution injury, you need to act fast. You may only have a limited amount of time to file a claim for damages.
