Electrocution Accident Lawyers In Vero Beach Fighting On Behalf Of Electrocution Victims
Electrocution accidents can have serious or deadly consequences for individuals and their families. In most instances, electrocution accidents are highly preventable, but property owners, electricians, or construction workers, among other responsible parties, often fail to take the proper precautions necessary to ensure safety. As a result, many people are injured or even killed by electrocution due to negligence.
If you have been injured in an electrocution accident or lost a loved one due to negligence, you may be entitled to recover compensation for your damages. One of the first steps you need to take is to contact the Grall Law Group and ask to schedule a free no-obligation consultation with one of our experienced electrocution lawyers. We will gladly sit down with you and explain your rights and legal options.
How Do Most Electrocution Accidents Occur?
Unfortunately, most electrocution accidents happen due to unsafe conditions or a lack of proper safety protection. Some of the most frequently cited reasons for electrocution accidents include:
- Contact with water while holding or using an electric device
- Faulty wiring, often due to electrical work being done by a homeowner or other untrained person
- Damaged plugs or cords
- Downed power lines as a result of storms or other natural disasters
- Lack of proper grounding
- Improper use of extension cords
- Overloading circuits or outlets
If you have been injured in an accident or your loved one dies due to the negligence of another person, such as a property owner, electrician, handyman, or other responsible parties, you may be entitled to recover financial compensation. Contact our law firm and ask to speak with a knowledgeable electrocution accident lawyer immediately.
Who Might Be Responsible for My Electrocution Injury?
If you suffered your electrocution injury while on the job, it will most likely be classified as a workers’ compensation claim. However, if you were injured in someone’s home, in a business, at a construction site, or even in your own home, there may be someone whose negligence caused your or your loved one’s electrical injury. These are just a few locations where electrical injury may occur. Anywhere there is an electrical current, the potential for injury exists.
For example, if you are visiting a friend and suffer an electrical injury caused by faulty wiring that the homeowner did themselves during a home improvement project, the homeowner may possibly be held liable. If you are being given a tour of a home under construction and are electrocuted or shocked because dangerous live wires were exposed and not marked or barricaded, the construction company or even the real estate company could possibly be responsible. In general, property owners are responsible for maintaining the safety of their premises.
Workers who are licensed to do electrical work or inspection may be liable if they made a mistake that caused your electrocution. Consult with one of our experienced electrical injury attorneys to discuss the details of your situation and explore your options.
