Electrocution Can Lead To Serious Injuries
Electrocutions can happen in a wide variety of circumstances and can result in serious injuries or even death. Although electrocution injuries frequently occur on construction sites where employees are working with high-voltage, dangerous equipment, such injuries can also stem from negligence, faulty wiring or other defects in commercial products. These injuries can be severe and require attention from an experienced injury attorney to maximize compensation.
At Kampinski & Roberts, LPA, we represent victims of electrocutions and work to their deserved compensation. Our Independence office represents clients in the Cleveland and Akron metropolitan area, as well as across the state of Ohio.
The types and severity of injuries caused by electrocutions can vary immensely. Electrocutions may result in serious burn injuries, requiring reconstructive surgery to avoid permanent scarring or disfigurement. Serious electrocutions can also result in damage to one’s nervous, cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
