Electrocutions and live wire injuries can happen in any industry: working at an office, one may get electrocuted trying to plug in a charger.

If you have been in an electrocution accident, reach out to an attorney to learn more about your case. Our team is here to help handle your personal injury accident. We are happy to look into the details of your situation and guide you through the process.

What Can Cause an Electrocution Accident

In the modern world, there are many common causes of electrocution accidents, some of which include:

Power Lines

One of the main ways that this type of accident occurs is with overhead power lines. If a power line falls down on your home and you attempt to fix the issue on your own, you may become electrocuted. Specific tools are necessary to handle this, and it is dangerous to handle the issue without them, or without proper training.

If there is any form of water near the power line, you are at risk of electrocution, as well. It is best to call the electrical company in your area when you see a power line down rather than attempting to handle it on your own.

An unattended injury due to the power line being down might be dangerous for your life. Contact our New York City electrocution accident lawyers to help you look over your case and see whether you deserve a settlement for your losses.

DIY Fixes

Trying to fix an electrical problem on your own, you are risking electrocution. It can be as simple as attempting to wire a fan on your own. No matter the size of the project you want to work on, it is best to have proper training and skills to take it on. Many DIY projects can end poorly and have a great risk of electrocution. It is best to stay safe and protect yourself and your loved ones from any potential electrocution and seek immediate medical attention if you are exposed to it.

Defective Products

Using a defective product at home is also an electrocution hazard. A variety of objects such as power tools, medical devices, and appliances can be defective, posing risks on the person that uses them. In some cases, simply turning on the defective product is enough to cause an accident.

Pursue extra caution when it comes to electrical appliances. You must repair or discard them as soon as you see something an issue. For instance, once you notice a tool spark, it becomes a hazard and may cause issues later on.

Always hire a professional to help. They will have the necessary training, knowledge, and experience to work on a project without risking anyone’s health.

What to do if You are Electrocuted

If you or a loved one has been shocked, you will need to react right away. As soon as it is safe to do so as the person being injured is no longer in contact with electricity, you will need to get medical attention. The sooner you can, the better—even if the injury seems small.

Small shocks can still cause lasting damage that may go unnoticed. After receiving first aid, you should get professional medical attention. You will want to receive treatment as soon as you can so that the injury does not worsen and cause you further harm. The longer you wait, the less likely you will be to receive compensation as well.

After meeting with a medical professional, you or a loved one should ensure that proper documentation is taken. This will be a crucial piece to pursuing compensation. If you are overwhelmed by this burden during the chaotic aftermath of your accident, a lawyer from Shulman & Hill will do the leg work to track down medical records, doctor’s notes, and any other paperwork that can help you with your case. Recovering from an accident like this requires time and patience, and with an attorney, you will be able to focus on the healing process.

What Compensation am I Entitled to?

Our New York City electrocution accident lawyers can also assist you in preparing a lawsuit. There are many things to consider in preparation, and an attorney’s knowledge and experience can greatly benefit the case.

You may also receive compensation for your lost wages, medical bills, pain, suffering for the past and future.
