Electrocution Injuries

Leading Causes of Construction Site Electrocutions

All construction workers, not just electricians, are at risk for electrocution injuries. Electrocutions can occur when coworkers make mistakes, when electrical components and equipment fail, and when electrical systems are not designed to withstand the loads they need to handle.

We represent clients in cases involving issues such as:

  • Failure to adequately control hazardous energy – On construction sites, proper lockout and tagout practices must be followed at all times, and all employees must be properly instructed on restart and reenergizing procedures.
  • Faulty wiring methods, components and equipment – Faulty wiring methods, components and equipment can lead to electric shock and electrocutions throughout construction sites.
  • Faulty electrical system design – Improperly-engineered electrical systems for residential and commercial construction projects can put all workers on the site at risk for electrocution.

Compensation Available to Victims of Construction Site Electrocutions

After any type of construction accident, it is important to discuss your rights with an attorney. There are steps you need to take and mistakes you need to avoid, and you need to make sure you pursue all available sources of financial compensation:

  • Workers’ compensation benefits – Construction workers who qualify as “employees” are eligible for medical and disability benefits through workers’ compensation. Family members who lose loved ones in construction accidents can collect death benefits through workers’ compensation as well.
  • Personal injury or wrongful death compensation – If a third party, such as a building owner, engineering firm or subcontractor, was at fault in the accident, you may be entitled to seek full compensation for your injuries or your loved one’s death. Since workers’ compensation benefits are limited, filing a personal injury or wrongful death claim (if you have one) will be essential to maximizing your financial recovery.
