Electricians Won't Find These Stats Shocking

Electrical accidents are the cause of 5-10% of traumatic work deaths, ranking fourth behind falls and punctures for workplace-related mortalities.

All workers - not just cable installers and electricians, tree trimmers and landscapers, or construction workers and welders who work on or near overhead power lines and other high-voltage wiring - working in unsafe workplaces where electrical equipment might meet a damp surface or using equipment with frayed or otherwise deformed electrical cords are at-risk for electrical injury.

Workplace electrical shocks can result in a variety of severe injuries. Most commonly, these are heart injuries (including cardiac arrest), tissue degeneration, and severe burns. The sensation of electrical shock and severity of injury differ depending on the voltage, duration, and point of entry. Some of the worst onsite shocks are not felt at all.

If a workplace electrical injury has caused you to be unable to function at work, call Eric, Randy, and Sarah at 515-225-4485, we are well-versed in this field, and will be happy to answer your questions. We will fight for your rights to get you the compensation you deserve.
