Electrical Injury Attorneys

While electrical injuries are common in the workplace, electrocutions can happen almost anywhere.  About 1,000 people die each year in the United States due to electric shocks, and approximately 3,000 more victims each year sustain serious injuries by electrocution burns.  If you or someone you love has suffered an electrical injury, contact our Tulsa OK personal injury lawyers to explore your legal options and to see if you have a claim.

Causes of Electrical Injuries

Electrocutions can happen almost anywhere; including both the home and the workplace.  Poor safety practices as well as malfunctioning of defective machinery can lead to a workplace electrocution.  Defective appliances and power tools as well as failure in child-safety products can cause an electrocution in the home.  Other causes of electrocution include:

  • Lightning
  • Human negligence and inattention
  • High voltage power lines
  • Faulty or damaged wiring and frayed electrical cords

Symptoms of Electrical Injuries

Electrocutions can be separated into two distinct categories; high voltage injuries and low voltage injuries.  High voltage injuries imply that the electrical source is greater than 1,000 volts, where a low voltage injury means that the source is less than 1,000 volts.  Common electrical injuries include:

  • Brain and nerve damage
  • Memory loss
  • Loss of cognitive abilities
  • Seizures
  • Permanent heart muscle damage
  • Heart arrhythmias
  • Damage to internal organs
  • Cataracts or vision loss
  • Hearing loss
