Frequently Asked Electrocution Questions

How Does Electrocution Happen?

How does electrocution happen? Metal conducts electricity so when metal and electricity meet accidentally, and a human body gets in the way, the result is electrocution. People can be electrocuted by making contact with an exposed source of electricity or contact with a defective electrical device or faulty wiring.

Electrocution can happen anywhere. If it happens at home, it is likely due to a product that is defective such as a malfunctioning appliance or an unsafe toy. In these cases, the manufacturer may be liable for their product causing damage. If you are injured on someone else’s property, they may be liable if they had prior knowledge of or should have had knowledge of the danger.

What Are Common Types of Injuries from Electrocutions?

The severity of the injury is directly related to how high the voltage was, the route it traveled through the body, and how long the victim was exposed to the voltage. Smaller currents can be dangerous, too, as they can cause heart fibrillation. Permanent cell damage and serious burns can be caused by larger currents. The types of injuries caused by electrocution include:

  • Damage to internal organs
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Brain damage
  • Wrongful death
  • Headaches
  • Nerve damage
  • Personality or temperament changes
  • Vision Loss
  • Neuropathy
  • Memory loss
  • Cognitive impairment
  • Permanent damage to the heart muscle
  • Burns
  • Seizures
  • Spinal cord injury
  • Psychiatric issues

What Should I Do If I've Been Electrocuted?

It’s important to seek medical attention immediately after the electrocution, even if it seemed rather inconsequential at the time. Some of these issues are life-threatening and other issues may not arise until later.

Victims of electrocution have physical, financial, and emotional injuries. If the injury happens in the workplace and it’s due to a faulty product, there may also be a third-party liability. It’s important that you have proper representation to ensure that you are fairly compensated for your damages. Damages can include medical expenses, lost wages, permanent or temporary disability, pain and suffering, loss of earning capacity, and diminished quality of life.

Responsible parties may include contractors, sub-contractors, property owners, and equipment manufacturers. There are regulations governing warning devices, shielding devices, automatic shut off, faulty wiring, overloaded electrical circuits, cord damage, and defective tools. Our investigative team will doggedly pursue the answer to find who is liable for your injuries.
