High voltage electrical shocks can be extremely damaging and even deadly. Working on job sites often presents exposed wiring, wiring not properly installed, and a number of other potential electrocution hazards. Too often, workers are injured on a job site through electrical accidents that cause severe burns, cardiac arrest, and even death.
Job sites are often filled with a number of different contractors working to complete the project. This means that an employer is not always the one responsible for an injury at work. If that's the case, then you could be entitled to more than workers' compensation for your injury.
Our law firm helps injured people recover the compensation and benefits after they've been hurt in an accident. Electrical accidents can cause serious, life-changing accidents, and without the help of an experienced attorney, you could be stuck holding the bill.
