Electrocutions & Electrical Injuries

Call a North Carolina Personal Injury Lawyer

Electricity is extremely dangerous and electrical accidents often result in severe burns, brain damage, 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.
