New York Electrocution Accidents Lawyer

Any job has potential hazards, whether you work in an office or on a construction site. Yet, there are jobs that require you to be more alert than normal. Specifically, if your occupation involves working with electricity, it is crucial to follow all safety measures.

An electrocution accident can have significant long-term consequences. Even if you are careful, it is still possible to be harmed in a New York electrocution accident.

While this will hopefully never occur, you may be entitled to compensation for your losses if it does. Review your case with a New York electrocution accidents lawyer at Shulman & Hill to learn more about your legal options.

Electrocution Accidents in New York: What You Need to Know

Statistics indicate that electrocution accidents kill hundreds of American workers every year. Workers who survive such accidents are often left with severe injuries, such as burns, pain, disfigurement, and more. Additionally, reports indicate that, while electricians are at a greater risk than others of being involved in work-related electrocution accidents, such incidents can occur in virtually any work setting. Exposure to a broken lightbulb or wire can be enough to cause an injury.

You may be more vulnerable to electrocution accidents if you work in a busy state such as New York. Construction crews and electricians tend to handle more projects than they might in more rural parts of the country.

Seeking Compensation After a New York Electrocution Accident

You are likely entitled to compensation for your losses after a New York electrocution accident. How you go about pursuing what you are potentially entitled to might vary depending on the circumstances. There are two general scenarios that may apply:

New York Work-Related Electrocution Accidents

If you were injured in an electrocution accident at work, New York law allows you to seek compensation for such losses as medical bills and lost wages by filing a workers’ compensation claim.

When doing so, you are required to prove your injuries are work-related. Your claim is more likely to be approved in a timely manner if you coordinate with an experienced law firm in New York.

General Electrocution Accidents in New York

Not all electrocution accidents occur in the workplace. You may be injured in such an accident if:

  • You were handling a defective electrical appliance
  • An electrician installed wiring or an appliance improperly
  • Someone failed to warn you about a hazard on their property that could cause an electrocution accident
  • A property owner neglected to perform necessary maintenance, allowing a dangerous electrical hazard to remain unaddressed

In these cases, you may be able to seek compensation by filing a claim against the negligent party’s insurance. Regardless of whether your electrocution accident occurred while you were at work, enlisting the help of a qualified law firm in New York is a decision that will benefit you for many reasons.

How a New York Electrocution Accidents Law Firm Can Help

Depending on the specifics of your case, our New York electrocution accidents lawyers can help you pursue the compensation you may be owed in a variety of ways. They include:

Investigating the Accident

In the case of a work-related electrocution accident, leveraging a law firm’s resources to investigate the accident may be necessary if an insurer or employer argues your injuries have no connection to the workplace.

If an accident did not occur at work, an attorney’s investigation can help identify who the negligent parties responsible for compensating you may be. Determining liability can be complex, and a skilled legal professional can use their experience to assist you.

If you were electrocuted while using an appliance in your home, the negligent party may be the electrician who installed the appliance improperly. It may also be that the negligent party is the designer or manufacturer who overlooked a defect. We can investigate your case thoroughly to ensure you are seeking compensation from the appropriate parties.

Pursuing Compensation After An Electrocution Accident

Your medical bills may not be the only losses for which you may be entitled to compensation after a New York electrocution accident. If you file a personal injury lawsuit, you may be entitled to compensation for pain and suffering as well.

Our electrocution accident attorneys can review all settlement offers with you to ensure that you do not unknowingly accept a low offer.

Negotiating on Your Behalf

Whether a New York electrocution accident is work-related or not, when you file a claim, you will find that insurance companies may tend to negotiate. They might try to deny your claim if they believe they have the grounds to do so.

When you hire our electrocution accidents lawyers, you will have professionals by your side who can present evidence showing why you truly are entitled to the compensation you are seeking. In the event that we cannot reach a fair settlement, we will are prepared to fiercely represent you in a trial.

The claims process can be lengthy and demanding if you try to handle it on your own. In the aftermath of a New York electrocution accident, your primary focus should be on your recovery. We can handle all the negotiations and paperwork on your behalf.
