Workers’ Comp Lawyers in Orange County
Malfunctioning machinery at construction sites, industrial zones, offices, and other workplaces can send out powerful electrical surges without warning. If you were electrocuted while using or servicing a machine at work, you may have grounds to create a lawsuit. As Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) reports often conclude, the worker who suffers an electrocution injury is often not the one to blame.
At Alvandi Law Group, P.C., our Orange County workers’ compensation attorneys have spent more than 3 decades helping clients throughout Southern California, including numerous electrocution accidents.

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:
- Heart failure
- Muscle or nerve tissue damage
- Third-degree burns
- Brain damage
- Organ failure
Depending on the health of the victim or the energy behind the shock, an electrocution can be fatal. In such circumstances, our Orange County attorneys can help you file a wrongful death claim to help cover the costs related to your loved one’s passing.
