Electrocution Injuries

Have you suffered an electrocution injury? Attorney Vargas will fight for you as your electrocution injury attorney in Rancho Cucamonga.

Electricity is essential for our modern way of life. But most people don’t really understand electricity or the dangers that can arise if it is not managed properly. Occasionally, this can result in electrocution injuries.

How Electrocution Affects the Body

When electricity comes into contact with a person, the electrical current flows through the person’s body through the path of least resistance—i.e. through the victim’s soft tissues (skin, fat, muscle) and internal organs. The longer the electricity runs through the victim’s body, the more damage it causes and the higher the risk for permanent, serious injuries such as:

  • Cardiovascular injury
  • Cardiac arrest
  • Respiratory arrest
  • Burns to skin, soft tissues, and/or body organs
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Brain damage
  • Seizures
  • Peripheral nerve damage
  • Paralysis
  • Fractures
  • Necessity for amputation
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Injuries to the eyes
  • Psychiatric problems
  • Death

Common Causes of Electrocution Accidents

While most electrocution accidents involving adults take place in work environments, children and adults may be vulnerable to electrocution injuries from common hazards found in the home and in public places:

  • Faulty wiring
  • Exposed wiring
  • Poorly insulated wiring
  • Defective electrical appliances

When electrocution accidents occur due to someone else’s negligence, the injured victims have the right to seek compensation through a personal injury lawsuit. For example, a landlord who failed to correct wiring that was known to be faulty could be sued on the grounds of premises liability. Or, the manufacturer of a defective appliance that gave an electric shock could be sued on the grounds of product liability. Manufacturers are liable for products that cause injuries due to defects in their design, their manufacturing, or their warnings.
