Portland Electrical Injury Attorney
Construction Accidents: Electrocution and Electrical Burns
Construction sites are one of the most dangerous environments in which to work, and employers are required to maintain safety regulations and take every precaution to maintain safety. Construction accidents that are the result of contact with electricity should be compensated through workers’ comp benefits. There may also be an additional personal injury claim filed if there is any third party liability.
Filing a Claim for an Electrical Injury
Many electrical accidents lead to fatal injuries. Unmarked underground electrical cables can seriously injure or kill a worker who is drilling or digging. Coming into contact with a bare wire can cause life-threatening burns or loss of life. Improperly manufactured electrical equipment can cause a shock or burns. All of these injuries should be financially compensated.
Some of the damages you may be able to pursue include:
- Pain & suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Loss of income
Emotional suffering can also be compensated, particularly in cases of third party liability. Our legal team includes an accounting department that knows how to properly value all losses, current and future that an electrical injury victim will have to face.
