Injuries Suffered in Serious Electrical Accidents
Burns are some of the most common injuries suffered from electrical accidents.
Electrical burns are very different from chemical and thermal burns. Electric
current flowing through deep tissue and bones causes damage with deeper
surface penetration. Depending on a person's resistance to the current
and the entry/exit wounds, electrical burn injuries can range from mild
to fatal in nature.
Serious electrical burn injuries can cause damage throughout the body,
- Muscle tissue
- Veins and arteries
In other situations, electrical arcs and flashes can cause burns when an
incredibly high temperature is produced near a person's body, even
when the person does not make direct contact with the current or any object.
Thermal contact burns can occur alongside electrocution injuries when
individuals come into contact with surfaces that have been super-heated
by the current.
Seek Proper Medical Attention & Legal Counsel
After an electrical accident, it is vital for victims to get proper medical
attention. Because electrocution injuries can cause catastrophic damage
to the body and even result in fatal injuries from complications, nothing
is more important than securing a healthy future after an electrical accident.
Getting a full assessment of your condition may ensure that when you file
a claim for your losses and expenses, you do not file for less compensation
than you need and are left with financial burdens..
Accidents involving electrical burns and electrocution have been known
to cause fatal injuries, especially when involuntary muscle spasms and
other immediate effects can cause fatal collisions and falls. In these
situations, it is all the more important to take legal action to seek
justice for loved ones and hold the responsible party accountable for
their negligent behavior. At Cohn & Swartzon, P.C., our injury attorneys
help victims and families protect their entitlements and their future.

Electrical accidents make up one tenth of all fatal work related injuries.
When a human body makes direct contact with a live power line, a sufficient
amount of current can travel through the body to cause death. If a large
enough current is running through the source of electricity, the victim
may be unable to let go of the energized object. Electrocution can cause
abnormal heart rhythm, tissue damage, burns, neurological effects and death.
Causes of accidental electrocution include faulty inspection, defective
tools, overloaded outlets, loose connections,
manufacturing defects, faulty insulation, and improper grounding, as well as sudden freak accidents.
In most cases, a correctly inspected inspection and safety measures could
have prevented the electrical accident.
