​​Electrocution Can Cause Severe Injuries

An ​electrocution occurs when an electric current (electrical shock) passes through the human body. Depending on the voltage, ​electrocutions have the potential to cause catastrophic injuries and even fatalities. The most common non-fatal electrocution injuries are electrical burns. Though, a wide range of other serious injuries—including internal organ damages and electric shock acquired brain injuries (ABIs)—can occur in these types of accidents as well. All significant electrocution injuries require immediate medical attention. 

Who is Liable for an ​​Electrocution in California?

Electrocutions can happen in a wide range of different contexts. Liability will always depend on the specific circumstances of the case. That being said, the majority of electrical injuries can be prevented with proper care. A business, property owner, equipment manufacturer, or other company can be held legally liable for an electrocution caused by negligence.

Many electrocution injury claims are construction site accident claims. The companies working on construction projects have a duty to protect their workers and the general public from the risk of electrocution. Additionally, California businesses and property owners may be held responsible for an electrical injury through a premises liability claim. 

Financial Compensation for Electrocution Accident Victims 

After a serious electrocution, injured victims need compensation to pay bills and support themselves. In California, financial relief may be granted for economic and intangible damages. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not make the claims process easy on people. Our Los Angeles ​​electrocution accident lawyers fight to help clients maximize their recovery, including for: 

  • Emergency room care; 
  • Medical bills and other health care costs;
  • Lost wages and diminished ability to earn; 
  • Pain and suffering; 
  • Emotional distress; 
  • Permanent physical disfigurement; and
  • Wrongful death.
