Brooklyn Electrocution Injury Lawyers

Personal Injury Attorneys in Brooklyn Helping Victims of Electrical Injuries Recover Compensation

Electrocution injuries run the gamut from small zaps when a child puts a fork in an outlet to major electrocution, such as when a power line falls on a motor vehicle. If you have been electrocuted, you should assume the injury is serious and get to a doctor who can investigate the full extent of your injuries.

Electrocution Injuries Are Serious and Sometimes Life-threatening

Getting electrocuted is no laughing matter. Many types of injuries threaten to permanently impair electrocution victims, including:

Sometimes, the electrocution itself is not too serious, but it causes a person to fall. For example, someone on a ladder could accidentally encounter electricity from a power line. They then fall to the ground, where they suffer traumatic injuries on impact.

How Victims Are Electrocuted in Brooklyn

Electrocution can happen in different situations. One of the more common is to be electrocuted at work. Some jobs use heavy equipment that requires large amounts of electricity. A defect in equipment or improper safety measures can lead to the electrocution of a worker or a visitor to the job site.

Other electrocutions occur due to defective consumer goods on the market, such as toys or kitchen equipment. These devices fail to work properly or lack the necessary safety instructions. Consequently, innocent consumers are electrocuted when the device malfunctions on them.

Still, other electrocutions happen when visiting private property. For example, wiring in a hotel or motel could be faulty. A person can also be electrocuted when visiting friends or family due to a defect in the premises. Reach out to a Brooklyn electrocution injury lawyer to review the circumstances surrounding your accident.
