According to statistics, thousands of people are hurt each year from improper exposure to electricity and electrical currents. Sadly, some of these exposures result in the untimely death of the individual who is subject to the electrical shock.
In many instances, those who suffer from the devastating effects associated with electrocutions suffered as the result of someone else’s negligence, carelessness, or violation of safety rules.
Whether the electrocution occurs at work or at home, you may be entitled to compensation if you or a loved one suffered from an electrocution accident.
In the workplace, employers must ensure that their employees work in a safe environment. This means that employers must inspect the workplace and ensure that dangerous conditions are not present. This is especially true when individuals may be exposed to electrical currents.
Not only must an employer ensure that employees work in a safe environment, employers have a duty to properly educated their employees regarding proper safety protocols.
