Electrocution shock accidents on construction sites can be the most serious type of injury. Our Philadelphia, PA lawyers understand that construction sites can be very dangerous places, and electrocution shock injuries are a very real possibility on construction sites. Our attorneys can show that these types of accidents have the potential to result in very serious internal injuries, or even death by electrocution. Most of these accidents could be prevented by the imposition of safety measures and practices. You have a right to recover for all your injuries against the parties that did not take appropriate measures to ensure your safety.
There are a number of different kinds of electrical injuries that may occur on construction sites. Workers may be injured upon coming into contact with exposed live wires or outlets. Faulty machinery or power tools could produce an electrical injury when touched. While burns on the skin are a good indication of an electrical injury, not all people develop physical, visible injuries. The best way to determine the extent of your injury is to have a doctor monitor your heart for abnormal rhythms. If you have been exposed to an electrical current, you may have suffered damage to your internal organs or burned tissue. You can recover for your injuries against any party who was responsible for inspecting the premises and correcting any dangers, but who failed to do so.
It is important to contact an attorney right away if you have suffered an electrical injury at a construction site. The nature of a construction site is that it is constantly changing, and it is important that the site is investigated, observed and photographed in the same condition that it was in when you were injured. Property owners may try to fix the dangerous condition or cover it up, or it may be eliminated on its own as part of the original construction plans. That’s why you need an attorney who will work quickly and efficiently to ensure that you have the strongest case possible so that you can fully recover for your injuries.
