The personal injury electrocution and electrical shock accident injury lawyers at Birzon and Associates have decades of experience in handling of on-the-job personal injury claims, as well as, workers compensation accident claims, relating to electrocution and electrical shock accident injuries. These accidents can happen to electrical workers, construction workers, and others, who are conducting electrical work and construction workers who come into unintended contact with electrical lines, for example, while doing excavation work and hitting a high power electrical line, or construction contractors who may hit a high power line while cutting into a wall.

Any electrical current may cause many types of serious injuries including skin and tissue burns and nervous system damage. Death can also occur as a result of any high-powered electrical shock that carries a current that is sufficient to stop a person’s heart. While Smaller electrical currents may trigger cardiac events such as atrial or ventricular fibrillation (which are generally defined as cardiac rhythm disturbances) in the heart which can be reversible by use of a cardiac defibrillator if utilized in a timely manner. Larger electrical currents can cause death or permanent injury including nervous system damage, brain and, spinal cord damage, respiratory damage, kidney damage, and cellular and tissue damage from burns and many more types of severe personal injuries. It should be noted that even in cardiac events caused by lower currents, one can lose consciousness and fall from high elevations, or fall onto objects and debris that can also cause serious injury.

Long Island Power companies, construction companies and building owners are required to abide by industry wide standard protections and warnings against accidental electrocutions. These electrical power standards apply to all construction zones, whether commercial or residential, and also apply to products, such as appliances, and anything else that utilizes an electrical power source. At construction sites, electrical contractors, employers, and power companies have a duty and responsibility to locate, maintain and provide protection for workers, from power lines. NY law also requires product manufacturers and electrical contractors to provide full protection and proper insulation for their products that use electricity. The reasons for most of these electrocution and electrical shock accidents are due to a failure to comply with established safety measures, defective equipment, improper use of electrical equipment, and other work site neglect by the electrical contractor, foremen and others in charge.
