Electrical Shock Injuries

Tennessee Electrical Shock Injury Lawyer

Certain occupations often put workers at risk of electrical shock injuries, or even electrocution in some cases. Roofers, electricians, construction workers and maintenance workers, to name a few, are often vulnerable to the dangers of close proximity to electrical sources. Many other types of workers may suffer electrical shock injuries on the job in "freak accident" (unexpected) circumstances, as well.

Whether you suffered an electrical shock injury in the course of some kind of employment involving well-known high risks or in an unexpected accident at work, you may have a valid workers' compensation claim. You should consult with an experienced workers' compensation lawyer to ensure that you receive all compensation you are entitled to. You may encounter obstacles from your employer or your employer's insurer.

A knowledgeable injury law attorney will not only advise you on how to maximize your workers' compensation benefits after an electrical shock injury. Your lawyer can also initiate an investigation into the circumstances of the accident. If it becomes clear that a third party, such as an installation or maintenance company, a manufacturer, a property owner or a subcontractor, was responsible in whole or in part for your injury, you may have a personal injury claim against that person or organization. A third-party liability claim in addition to a workers' compensation claim can help ensure that you receive the compensation you need to cope with costs and negative effects associated with your electrical shock injury:

  • Emergency medical care
  • Ongoing monitoring and medical treatment as needed
  • Skin burns or burns to internal tissue
  • Cognitive or memory loss

Zuccarello uses a team approach for every injury case, sharing our knowledge and experience to maximize the compensation and benefits our clients receive.
