Electrocutions & Electrical Injuries
Call a North Carolina Personal Injury Lawyer
Electricity is extremely dangerous and electrical accidents often result
in severe burns,
spinal cord and other nerve damage, heart attacks, respiratory failure, or
death. However, most electric injuries are preventable because Federal and state
codes and standards govern the ways in which electricity may be distributed
and used safely to avoid electrocution accidents.
If you have been injured,
contact our Durham personal injury attorneys at Twiggs, Strickland & Rabenau.
Electrocutions Are Common Throughout North Carolina
Electrical injuries can occur for a variety of reasons and in a variety
of situations. This includes on the job accidents and in common household
accidents, especially with faulty wiring during the holiday season, when
weather is wetter and the days get darker earlier.
Most electric injuries are caused by:
- Building a structure too close to uninsulated power lines
- Incorrectly insulating an electrical line
- Failing to wire buildings and other structures to code
- Wiring industrial equipment or household appliances incorrectly
- Improperly maintaining equipment
- Failing to comply with safety regulations
- Weather-related incidents such as lightning and downed power lines
These accidents can be devastating and lead to large medical bills, lost
wages when you are forced to take time off to recover, and a future of
pain and suffering. Don’t suffer these serious injuries alone.
