Electrical Injuries

Negligence and Electrical Injuries

Whether they happen at home, at work or elsewhere, electrical injuries can result in extremely serious consequences, including disabling injuries and death.

Injuries Resulting From Burns

Electrical injuries can cause harm in a number of ways, including:

  • Heart attack from disrupting the heart’s own electrical impulses
  • Muscle, nerve, and tissue destruction caused by electrical current entering, existing in and passing through the body
  • Thermal burns from contact with the electrical source
  • Secondary injuries resulting from falls or violent muscle contractions associated with the exposure to electrical current

“Electrical burns account for 4 percent to 6.5 percent of all admissions to burn units in the United States and for approximately 1000 fatalities per year in the United States.” Cooper and Price, Electrical and Lightning Injuries

Negligence and Electrical Accidents

Many forms of negligence can lead to an electrical accident. There may have been a manufacturing or design defect in an electrical appliance. The power company may have failed to replace or repair a damaged power line. An electrical subcontractor may have failed to perform proper lock out/tag out procedures creating an electrical hazard for the next person to touch the installation.
