Know Your Options
In Texas, employers are not required to participate in the state’s workers’ compensation system, so it is important to have a work injury lawyer explore every available option for obtaining the compensation you need and deserve.
If your electrocution injuries were caused by the negligence of others, whether because of substandard safety conditions, defective equipment or other forms of negligence, you have a right to be compensated for the harm you have suffered.
Founding attorney Scotty MacLean has helped injured workers obtain millions of dollars in compensation for on-the-job injuries. He can review the facts and circumstances surrounding your electrocution injury to determine fault issues and other legal factors that may result in a personal injury claim against the employer.
In cases where a third party’s negligence has contributed to injuries, a third-party negligence claim may be the most effective path forward. Third parties in electrocution cases often include equipment manufacturers, as well as owners of homes, apartment buildings and commercial or industrial buildings.
Effects Of Electrocution
Various systems of the body may be seriously injured as a result of electrocution. An electrocution may cause burns, wounds, damage to multiple organs and death. Injuries can result from direct contact, electrical arcing, flash and flame.
The severity of the injuries will depend on the type of electrical current, the duration of any contact and the amount of voltage involved. Bodily harm can occur to the cardiovascular system, respiratory system, central nervous system and musculoskeletal system. Complications from electric shocks can include seizures, abnormal heart rhythms, damage to cardiac and other muscles, damage to nerves, spinal cord problems and more.
An electrocution may require extensive medical treatment and result in loss of employment, as well as emotional trauma.
If you or a loved one is suffering any of these effects, contact MacLean Law Firm to learn more about your legal options.
