Electrocution Accidents At Work
The word alone – electrocution – has an ominous look and sound to it, as if striking fear into the text around it. Unfortunately, an electrocution accident can lead to serious injuries, even deaths.
Were you electrocuted while working or on the premises of another? There are approximately 700 workplace injury claims involving occupational electrocutions each year. If a work site has live wires, it must be determined by those who conduct inspections and enforce codes whether safety ordinances are being met. If the standards are not up to par and workers die from electrocution, those responsible should be held accountable.
Somebody needs to look out for people who may be victims of improper wiring and grounding. Proper wiring, grounding and thorough training and safety precautions should be top priorities. At the law firm of B. L. Jensen, L.P., in Houston, Texas, our lawyers hold responsible people and companies liable for the serious and fatal injuries they cause.
