Electrical Accident Attorney
Electrical accidents can be devastating for victims and their families. These types of accidents occur when a human body, either mistakenly or intentionally, becomes part of an electrical circuit, causing electricity to flow through the body. The injuries caused by such an episode can vary greatly. Depending upon how much electrical current passes through the body, you could be looking at mild, moderate, severe or even life-threatening injuries. Other factors that can impact the severity of injuries include what path the current took and the frequency of the current.
According to the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the most common causes of electrocution are unsafe electrical products and unsafe work environments. When an unsafe or defective product causes an electric shock, or any other type of serious injury, you may be able to bring a product liability claim against the manufacturer or distributor. If you or somebody you love has been electrocuted, you need to speak with an Electrical Accidents Attorney as soon as possible about your case.
Under Florida Law, your Electrical Accidents Attorney knows that if a product is not safe or causes injury when used in a predictable way, its manufacturer and distributor are held liable for injuries caused by the unsafe product. If an electrical shock injury occurs at work in Florida, the employee is covered for medical bills and lost wages by Florida’s Workers Compensation system.
In addition to that, your Electrical Accidents Attorney may help you discover that a claim exists against another party, such as the manufacturer of a product, a property owner or even the electric company, F.P.L. If a product was misused, abused or inadequately maintained by an employer, that may limit a potential claim against a manufacturer, and the injured person would recover worker’s compensation benefits only. This is just an example of some of the issues that come up in these types of cases. Therefore, you need to be sure that the Electrical Accidents Attorney that you hire retains the right experts and gathers the right evidence to help you prove your case.
