What is an Electric Shock Injury?
Electric shocks can cause burns and nerve damage, leaving the victim with permanent scarring and limited mobility. Electric shocks can also contribute to secondary injuries like lacerations, fractures, bruising, and dislocations where the force of the shock violently throws a victim away from the electrical current.
Electric shock injuries can be caused by:
- Faulty wiring in a building or office
- Failure to provide adequate training or equipment when working with electrical equipment
- Neglecting Failure to undertake proactive maintenance
- Instructing unqualified employees to carry out electrical work they are not trained or qualified to do
- Faulty electrical products
An example of a successful electric shock injury claim involved a worker who was thrown from a ladder after being electrocuted when replacing a lightbulb in a security system. He had switched off the power to the circuit, which was labelled to be the outside lights. However, this particular light had been wired into a different circuit and not correctly marked. His lawyers successfully sued for damages of nearly £110,000 after extensive negotiations.
Claiming Compensation for Electric Shock Injuries
The first thing our solicitors will do is talk to you in detail about the circumstances surrounding your injury, so we can confirm whether you have grounds to make a claim. If so, we will carefully match you with a personal injury solicitor who has the best experience to pursue your request for damages.
For your claim to be a success, your lawyer will seek to prove your injuries were genuine, and that they were the direct result of another party’s negligence or mistake. It can take several months to gather this evidence but the more thorough you make your case, the greater the likelihood of a speedy resolution. No one wants to go before a judge unnecessarily and the lawyers we work with resolve most of their claims out of court.
We will look at the way your injuries have affected your life. Have you lost earnings through being unable to work? Is your physical damage permanent? Do you need corrective treatment, like plastic surgery for scars, but are not eligible for it under the NHS? Compensation is not about being greedy; it is about receiving a payment that will enable to you do what is necessary for you to move beyond your injury and get on with your life.
