Helping the Injured, It's All We Do
Electrocution Accident Attorneys in Orange County
Have You Suffered Electrocution Injuries at a Work Site?
Electrical burns and accidental electrocutions can be frightening and excruciatingly painful. If a person is exposed to a strong enough current, an electrical shock can cause permanent heart damage, muscle and nerve tissue damage, burns, neurological damage, paralysis, and sometimes death.
According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), electrical shocks are one of the “fatal four” causes of workplace deaths. If you or a loved one has suffered an electrical shock in the workplace, you may be entitled to recover workers’ compensation benefits to offset your losses sustained as a result of your injuries.

Painful Consequences of Electrocution Accidents
Strong electrical currents run throughout machinery without many of us realizing it. Even basic office equipment, such as a printer or shredder, can spark and cause a serious electrocution injury. Supervisors of workspaces and maintenance crews, especially on industrial sites where equipment often carries a charge powerful enough to be fatal, must continually be on alert for frayed wiring, damaged plugs, and defective machinery. If they neglect their duty to protect their workers, someone may suffer a permanent injury.
Electrocution for just a split second can cause:
Depending on the health of the victim or the amount of energy behind the shock, electrocution can be fatal. In such circumstances, our Orange County electrocution injury attorneys can help you file a wrongful death claim to help cover the costs related to your loved one’s passing.
Common Causes of Workplace Electrocutions
An electrocution accident can occur anywhere a worker handles or works near exposed wiring. Electricians, custodians, carpenters, maintenance workers have a higher risk of being shocked than others during the course of their occupation. Most of the people who suffer serious electrical shocks are injured while conducting some sort of repair or are working with the belief that the power to nearby exposed wiring is turned off. In most cases, shocks are the result of someone else’s negligence.
Electrocutions can be caused by any of the following:
- Contact with overhead or buried power lines
- Contact with exposed wires
- Overloaded extension cords
- Equipment malfunctions
- Floods near live wires
