Construction Accidents Involving Electrocution, Electrical Burns And Shocks

Construction sites can be littered with live wires and electrical hazards as work is being done. Even if safety precautions are taken and workers are observant, electrocution accidents can occur.

These are serious incidents, as thousands of volts of electricity are running through wires that power construction sites. Workers can be seriously injured and even killed by an electrical accident.

Electrical Burn Injuries

Electrical burn injuries can be serious and even fatal. These burns will often require emergency hospital care and victims are at risk of resulting infection.

Scarring is often a concern for burn injury patients. Even if the initial burn is thoroughly treated, the victim may still have substantial scarring. In order to address the scarring, he or she may need additional medical procedures such as cosmetic surgery. A personal injury lawsuit can provide for anticipated future medical costs, including costs for scarring treatments and wound care.

In some cases, the physical burn site may appear to be minimal if electricity passed through and out of the body. However, these situations often require extensive medical treatment, as the injuries are all internal. Electricity can affect any and all of the internal organs and systems, in some cases causing permanent disabilities and conditions.
