The Most Common Types of Electric Shock Injuries
Electrical shock injuries occur when the human body encounters an exposed electrical energy source, such as a live wire. Injuries can range from mild pain to devastating injuries or even death (when someone dies from an electric shock it is known as electrocution).
The injuries incurred by an electrical shock may range based on the type of current, the level of electrical current, and how the electrical current enters and travels through the body. For example, a low current to the hand may simply shock the victim but cause no permanent damage. A high-voltage live wire could damage the victim’s heart, causing a heart attack or even death.
The most common injuries from electric shocks include:
- Broken bones
- Numbness or tingling
- Spinal injuries, due to being thrown or falling after the shock
- Head injuries, due to being thrown or falling
- Vision or hearing impairment
- Difficulty breathing
If you have been involved in an electrical shock incident, it is important that you seek medical attention right away. Once your doctor has cleared you, consider contacting an electrical shock lawyer in Florida to explore your legal options.
Types of Electrical Shock Cases
The types of damages you can recover in an electrical shock claim will vary based on where you were and what you were doing at the time of the shock. Here are some of the most common types of electrical shock cases we see.
If you were injured by an electrical shock while on the job, you may be eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim.
Property managers and business owners have a responsibility to maintain a safe environment. If you were injured due to failure to repair or notify the public of a danger, you may be able to file a premises liability claim.
Occasionally, an electrical shock can result in the death of a loved one. If a close family member passed away due to an electrical shock, you may be eligible to recover damages via a wrongful death claim.
Other Personal Injury Cases
If your electric shock claim does not fall under any of the above categories, we can still help. Contact an electric shock lawyer in Florida today to explore your legal options: 1-800-747-3733.
