ELECTRICAL SHOCK INJURY

Kleinick Law - New York Law Firm specializing in electrical shock injuries in construction or industrial sites. The electrical accident lawyers at Kleinick Law represent injured construction workers throughout New York City (NYC), Brooklyn, Bronx, Manhattan, and surrounding areas.

Electrical accidents are a common occurrence in commercial and industrial construction sites. Nearly a thousand individuals suffer fatal injuries due to the affects of electrical injuries and electrical burns. Electrocution is defined as death by electric current.

An electrical injury due to an electric shock can occur to the skin or internal organs when a person is directly exposed to an electrical current.

If you or one of your loved ones has been injured as the result of an electrical accident, contact an electrical injury lawyer 212-233-5433.

TYPES OF ELECTRICAL INJURIES

There are three main ways electric current can cause personal injuries:

  • Cardiac arrest (heart attack) due to the electrical effect on the heart.
  • Muscle, nerve, and tissue damage and destruction from a current passing through the body.
  • Thermal burns on epidermal and muscular tissue from contact with the electrical source.

CAUSES OF ELECTRICAL ACCIDENTS

Below are some common ways people may suffer electrical injuries:

  • From overloaded receptacles
  • From insulated tools
  • In the workshop
  • In the bathroom
  • Faulty wiring

You may be electrically injured if you touch someone with your bare hands while the person is still in contact with a source of electricity. Do not remove or touch irritated areas caused by an electrical injury. It is also recommended not to apply ice, butter, ointments, medications, cotton dressings, or adhesive bandages to an electrical burn.

We here at Kleinick Law will use our years of experience in handling construction and electrical accident cases to investigate every possible factor that would cause your accident, and to ensure that you will receive full compensation for your injuries.
