Electric Shock Injuries
Many electric shock injuries are avoidable. We are taught from childhood to stay away from fallen power lines, not to put our fingers in an electrical outlet, and to avoid water while using electrical devices. Unfortunately, shocks can occur even when adhering to these safety rules. The injuries resulting from an electric shock can cause substantial pain and suffering.
If you or your loved one has experienced injuries due to an electric shock that occurred as a result of another party’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation.

Causes of Electric Shock
Victims of electric shock may suffer a number of serious injuries, including burns, nervous system damage, and neurological problems. The common causes of these injuries include:
- Failure of power strip
- Failure of surge protector
- Unprotected electrical wires
- Fallen power lines
There are several different parties that may be at fault in electric shock cases. For example, the manufacturer of a faulty electrical product may have been negligent in the product design or manufacturing processes. If it can be proven that a negligent party was responsible for injury, victims may be eligible to receive compensation for medical bills and other associated costs.
