Florida Electrocution Accidents Can Result in Serious Jobsite Injuries
Electrocution is extremely dangerous. Anyone who works around electricity as a normal part of their job, or who has been injured in a Florida electrocution accident themselves can tell you how harmful a high-voltage shock of electricity can be.
Some of the short-term and long-term effects of an electrocution accident on the jobsite can include:
- Severe burns
- Ruptured ear drums
- Neurological damage
- Spinal cord damage
The immediate and associated costs of these injuries can quickly pile into the tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. Not only are there medical bills for emergency treatment, but you must also face the reality of ongoing care, lost wages from missed time at work and even the very real pain and suffering that follows.
If you believe that your electrocution accident could have been prevented, or was caused by the negligence of your employer, you may be able to file a personal injury claim to recover compensation for these costs. The best way to learn more about your legal rights is to speak with an attorney.
