Catastrophic Injuries

Electrocution Injuries

Did You Suffer A Serious Injury?

Human beings conduct electricity incredibly well, which makes it very important to clearly mark off or label potential electrocution hazards. Electrocution injuries don’t happen quite as often as other types of serious injuries, but they can cause some of the most devastating and potentially fatal injuries at home or at the workplace. No matter where your injuries occurred if they were caused by someone else’s negligence or reckless actions, you may be able to file a lawsuit in order to hold those responsible accountable for their actions and to secure compensation to cover any damages, harms and losses and medical bills caused by your injuries.

What Can Cause An Electrical Injury?

Any exposure to an intense electrical source could potentially result in shock or injury, most of these types of injuries are caused by:

  • Work-related exposure
  • Contact with exposed wiring or appliances
  • High-voltage power lines
  • Mechanical failure
  • Young children sticking a metal object into a socket, or chewing or biting electrical cords
  • Lightning

What Types Of Injuries Can Electricity Cause?

Victims could suffer from several types of injuries depending on the strength and source of the electrical charge, including:

  • Broken bones
  • Heart attack
  • Seizures
  • Lung failure or trouble breathing
  • Skin burns
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Irregular or stopped heartbeat
  • Muscle spasms and pain
  • Headaches
  • Unconsciousness
  • Problems hearing, seeing and / or swallowing

There are four distinct types of electrical injuries as well, broken down by the source of the electricity:

  • Flash Injuries: The electricity only causes damage to the skin of the victim and doesn’t travel any deeper.
  • Flame Injuries: Some electrical injuries are caused after the electrical charge sets material or clothing on fire that comes in contact with the victim’s skin.
  • True Electrical Injuries: When the victim becomes part of the electrical circuit – electricity flows in one side of their body and out another – they can suffer from this type of injury.
  • Lightning Injuries: These types of injuries are caused by high voltage and low duration charges of electricity, like in a lightning strike. While some internal damage may occur, the majority will likely be external or surface-level.
