Electrocution

Crown Point Electrocution Lawyer

Electrical Injury Claims in Northwest Indiana

Electrocution is the third-leading cause of death in the workplace, according to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Many other people are also injured or killed in electrocution accidents each year. In many cases, these accidents could have been prevented if it weren’t for the negligence of another person or party.

When a person is electrocuted or suffers an electrical burn and other injuries in a preventable accident, they have the right to seek compensation for their damages, including their medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. At Alvarez Law Offices, we are passionate about helping the injured and the wronged, and we are prepared to fight for you and your recovery.

How Does Electrocution Occur?

Electrocution is a serious risk in many workplaces, including construction sites, manufacturing facilities, and more. No matter where they occur, electrocution accidents can cause life-threatening injuries and even death.

There are four main types of electrocution accidents:

  • Direct contact with electrical current
  • Electrical current jumps from one object to another, and a person is in the path
  • Electrical current jumps from one object to another and a person is near the path
  • Electrical current causes an object to explode or catch fire, causing a person to suffer burns

While it is true that many electrocution accidents are simply that—accidents—there are also many cases in which these accidents are the result of negligence. In fact, OSHA reports that many electrocution accidents are caused by a failure to follow safety standards.

In these cases, an injured worker may have a valid personal injury claim against the at-fault person or party, which would allow them to seek compensation for damages not covered by workers' compensation, such as pain and suffering.

Types of Electrocution Injuries

Electrocution injuries can be extremely serious. Many electrocution accident victims suffer from catastrophic injuries, while others are killed in these accidents.

Some of the most common types of electrocution injuries include:

  • Electrical burns
  • Thermal burns
  • Internal organ damage
  • Heart attack
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Neurological damage
  • Brain damage
  • Paralysis
  • Amputation
  • Injury from being thrown due to electrical shock

Even if you do not believe you suffered an injury in the accident, it is crucial that you seek medical attention right away. Some injuries are not immediately apparent, such as internal organ damage, and failure to receive prompt medical care can be life-threatening.

Why It's Important to Act Quickly After an Accident

Like all other states, Indiana has a statute of limitations for personal injury claims. This is the amount of time you have to file a lawsuit against the at-fault party. If you try to file a claim after the statute of limitations has expired, the court will most likely refuse to hear your case and you will be unable to recover compensation for your damages.

In Indiana, the statute of limitations for personal injury claims is generally two years from the date of the injury. However, there are many exceptions to this rule, and the amount of time you have to file a claim may be longer or shorter depending on the specific circumstances of your case.

Who Is Liable for Electrocution Injuries?

Electrocution accidents can occur in a wide range of situations, from construction sites to office buildings. Determining who is liable for an electrocution accident will depend on the specific circumstances of the case. If you were injured in an electrocution accident, our Crown Point electrocution lawyer can help you determine who is at fault.

Some of the most common parties who may be held liable for electrocution injuries include:

  • Employers
  • General contractors
  • Subcontractors
  • Property owners
  • Electrical product manufacturers

These are just a few examples of the many different parties who may be held liable for an electrocution accident. Our firm can help you investigate the accident, determine who is at fault, and hold them accountable for their negligence.
