We understand the painful consequences of electrocution
Some of the professions most at risk of electrocution include:
- Utility workers
- Crane operators
- Tree trimmers
- Construction workers
- Truck drivers
While electrocution accidents are most common in certain industries, they can happen anywhere. Your injury may have been caused by exposed wiring, frayed cords or a defective power tool. The results? Skin burns, muscle damage, heart problems and difficulty breathing, among other serious symptoms. If your electrocution accident also involved a fall, you may be recovering from broken bones or another severe injury.
That's why you should be entitled to workers' compensation after an electrocution injury on the job. But actually getting the benefits you deserve can be much more difficult than you might expect. An experienced workers' compensation attorney can make all the difference.
We fight to make sure you're protected
If you were electrocuted on the job, your employer is required by law to pay for medical expenses, wage loss benefits and other workers' compensation benefits. Depending on the circumstances of your electrocution injury, you may be able to file a third-party claim as well. Our attorneys can thoroughly investigate what happened and relentlessly pursue the compensation you deserve.
Electrocution accidents are serious business. Employers and insurance companies understand this - and they'll do everything they can to protect their bottom line, at your expense. We don't put up with that behavior. We'll aggressively search for the evidence, represent you in negotiations and at trial and demand everything you deserve.
