On a construction site, there are many opportunities for workers to encounter live electricity, resulting in electrocution. Injuries can be grave, including external burns, internal burns, infection, loss of limbs or fingers, and even death. It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure that all equipment and machinery is safe and maintained, minimizing the possibility of electrocution.
If defective machinery or failure is to blame, we will pursue a suit against the manufacturer, holding it responsible for the poorly designed or manufactured equipment.
Electrocutions also happen frequently in the home. Children are particularly susceptible to injury due to electrocution. From ragged wires and open cords to defective wiring in electronics, faulty equipment can pose a danger, particularly for young children who put these objects in their mouths.
If you have been injured due to electronics or electrical equipment in the home, it is important that you consult with a trial lawyer. We can determine if defective equipment was to blame and if a case can be made against the manufacturer.
