Severe Injuries/Death Caused By Electrical Current Lawsuits

Electrical shock can cause severe injuries, including death. All electrical equipment must be carefully designed to protect users from electrical shock, and the manufacturer has a responsibility to provide electrical shock warnings if certain actions could expose users to electrical current. When a product or machinery is poorly designed or has a manufacturer defect that causes a serious electrical current injury to the user, the manufacturer may be liable for the injury.

Types of Electrical Shock Injuries

When an electrical current comes in contact with the body, it can have varying effects depending on the voltage, how the current travels and the type of current. For example, a small household appliance like a toaster can cause an electrical shock, but the current type and voltage is less likely to cause a serious electrical injury. It may cause an electrical burn and an injury, but severe internal damage is unlikely. However, large equipment and machinery, power lines and circuit boxes with high voltage can cause severe injuries including:

  • Orthopedic injuries to muscles, bones (fractures), joints and ligaments
  • Brain and nerve damage
  • Deep burns to skin and tissue
  • Organ damage, including ventricular fibrillation
  • Electrocution – death from electrical current
  • Amputation – caused by severe injuries to limbs and appendages

Exposure to a high voltage electrical current can be extremely dangerous, which is why machinery and equipment manufacturers must ensure their products are safe and provide the needed warnings for users. If you have been injured due to unsafe electrical equipment with defects or without proper warning information, contact our team at Conley Griggs Partin LLP. If the manufacturer created unsafe electrical equipment, they may be liable for your injuries or for the wrongful death of a loved one.
