Electrical Accidents Causing Shock, Burns or Electrocution
Dream Team Partners Philip L. Franckel, Esq. and Robert T. Plevy, Esq. will aggressively investigate electrical accidents and pursue claims against negligent property owners, contractors, and other negligent parties.
To investigate the electrical accident which caused your injury, we will use expert witnesses to identify the exact cause of the accident, determine who is at fault, and testify at trial if necessary.
You or someone you know may be entitled to significant compensation if an injury was caused by electric shock or electrocution. Persons and companies responsible for negligence causing injury from an electric accident, usually have substantial insurance policies to adequately compensate you for your injuries.
Electrical Injuries at Construction Sites
Electrical injuries are most frequently caused at construction sites. Construction workers often work close to live wires where old electric wires have not been removed or new electric wires are only partially installed.
Hidden or exposed electric wires may be damaged by tools thereby exposing construction workers to the risk of electrocution.
Construction workers often use metal ladders and scaffolds which may come in contact with live wires. Additionally, ladders and scaffolds allow construction workers to gain access to a greater height near live wires.
While construction workers frequently suffer electrical burn injuries or electrocution, the injury from the electric shock could be minor yet result in the construction worker being seriously injured from a fall or a tool.
If you have an electric injury on a construction site or in a construction accident, please call us immediately for a free, no-obligation consultation.
