ELECTROCUTION INJURIES ON THE JOB
Electrocution injuries can happen almost anywhere. Most of the people who suffer serious electric shock injuries do so while on the job. Many of those injured are conducting some kind of repair and are working with the expectation that power to nearby exposed wiring is off. In most cases, it is someone else’s mistake that leads to catastrophic electrocution injury or wrongful death. Your case could involve both a workers’ compensation claim and a personal injury action. These cases, while separate, are overlapping. Do not rely on a law office that does not specialize in both areas. At Bentley & More, we have been handling third party crossover cases for over 25 years. Keith More is one of few lawyers who has tried cases in both the workers’ compensation arena and superior courts.
WHERE CAN ELECTRICAL SHOCK INJURIES HAPPEN?
The danger of electrocution threatens not only electricians, but any worker that operates near potentially lethal exposed wiring, such as construction workers, carpenters, maintenance workers and custodians. Electric shock injuries can happen:
- During electrical work or repair
- On construction sites
- During routine maintenance
- In flooded areas near live electrical wires
- As a result of downed power lines
- In a car accident
Even if you have taken every safety precaution to make sure you are not exposed to hazardous wires, someone else’s negligence can lead to a serious electrocution injury. If you or a loved one has suffered needlessly, Orange County personal injury lawyer Keith More has the decades of workers’ compensation and premises liability experience to aggressively pursue your case.
