Electrical accident injuries can range from relatively small shocks to extensive burns, cardiac problems, and even death. On the worksite, such injuries are often the result of negligence and can cause life-changing injuries and wrongful death.
When negligence is involved in an electrical accident, a personal injury lawyer can help establish the cause of the accident, identify the liable parties, define the extent of the injuries, and pursue what is necessary to return quality of life to the injured victim. If you or a loved one has been injured in an electrical accident, call the personal injury lawyers at Jacobs & Jacobs at 203-777-2300.
How Jacobs & Jacobs Handles Electrical Injury Cases
Here is our procedure to help you deal with an electrical injury:
- Immediate accident investigation: As soon as a client tells us about an electrical accident, we begin our investigation. Because of our experience investigating workplace accidents, we know the questions to ask and how to consult experts who can explain the circumstances. Were the right warnings in place? Was training adequate? Were proper clearances provided?
- Medical questions: An electrical injury can send burns, shocks, and devastation throughout the body. Our law firm examines the medical records and consults with medical experts to understand the full extent of the injuries.
- Life-care planning: What does the electrical accident victim need to return to as normal a life as possible? Many times, the injured victim needs to change jobs, requiring additional training and education. What medical treatments, special equipment, prostheses, and other expenses will be required during the rest of the victim's life?
- Wrongful death: When an electrocution accident causes death, our attorneys will explain to a jury what this sudden, preventable death did to the family of the victim and how much the family lost in terms of the financial contributions and emotional support of a parent, spouse or child.
