Skilled Electric Shock Representation

An electrical injury occurs when a part of the body comes into contact with electricity. The human body can feel a very small amount of electricity. However, one of the most frightening things about an electrical accident is that it can cause so many different types of injuries. When electric shock has been experienced, the following types of injuries can result:

  • Painful and permanent thermal burns on the area of the body where contact was made
  • Brain damage, causing trouble with vision, speech, movement, etc.
  • Broken bones
  • Nerve and bone failure
  • Heart attack
  • Soft tissue injury
  • Paralysis and other permanent disability
  • Muscle tears and strains

Adults tend to know where electricity presents a danger, such as where there are fallen power lines, electrical outlets, and other hazards. However, there are times when adults are met by curious children who do not realize that their surroundings can be dangerous. We have helped clients who have been injured directly and we have helped those who have children who have been injured in an unsafe electrical situation.

Holding The Responsible Party Accountable.

With the help of a Minnesota personal injury lawyer with experience in this area, we can hold all of the responsible parties accountable. You could file your claim against the landlord or property owner where the accident occurred, the HOA or condo association, the contractor who did not exercise safety, the electrical company for negligence, the daycare that did not watch the child properly, and so many others. We investigate what happened in the accident so compensation can be properly sought. When you are able to win compensation, you do not have to worry about paying for your medical bills, for rehabilitation, and you can have your lost wages and other losses replaced so that you can focus on healing and not the financials.
