Passionately Pursuing Justice for the Injured

Electrical Injuries in Construction Accidents

Help from a Houston Construction Accident Lawyer

If you have suffered an electrical injury or lost a loved one to an electrocution accident, contact us at The Daspit Law Firm for a free consultation. Depending on the circumstances of the accident, you may have grounds to pursue legal action in order to recover financial compensation for the economic and emotional losses you have suffered.

You cannot trust the insurance company, however, to treat you fairly and pay you the settlement that you deserve. Rather than taking chances with the outcome of your claim, let our Houston personal injury lawyer represent your case and fight to recover payment for your medical expenses, your lost income, and perhaps even the pain and suffering you have endured.

About Electrical Accidents

Construction workers often have to handle live electrical currents, whether in using heavy equipment and machinery or in working around exposed wiring on new construction sites and remodels.

Electrical accidents are so common that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) lists electrocution as being one of the "Fatal Four," the four most common types of fatal construction accidents nationwide. Electrocution is the second-most common cause of death on construction sites throughout the United States, accounting for 9 percent of all fatal construction accidents in 2011.

Furthermore, OSHA's list of the 10 most frequently cited safety regulation violations in 2012 includes incidents involving control of hazardous energy, electrical, wiring methods, electrical components and equipment, and electrical systems design.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that contract with electric current was the cause of 27 worksite deaths in 2010, which amounts to 9 percent of the total, while contact with overhead power lines accounted for another 2 percent. In some cases, these accidents may be attributed to a failure to follow and enforce workplace safety regulations, while in other cases the cause may be negligence on the part of a fellow crewmember or even faulty or defective equipment.

Compensation for Electrical Accident Victims in Houston

If your employer carries workers' compensation insurance, you are most likely eligible to file a claim for medical and disability benefits. If your employer does not carry workers' compensation, we might be able to help you use evidence of negligence to sue for personal injury or wrongful death. It may even be possible to file a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer of equipment that caused injury through faulty wiring or similar defects.
