Electric power serves us in such a variety of ways, from power tools, to lighting, and to running our computers. The more prevalent and powerful the available electric service, the more likely serious electrocution accidents and injuries will occur.
Construction sites are especially dangerous, as exposed wiring, power tools, and constant activity are present. Negligence of a property owner, a power company, or other party can also result in electrocution of you or a loved one. Frequent causes include:
Workers compensation may be the appropriate source of benefits for you if you were injured on the job, but if a third party on the job site, or an entity other than your employer is responsible, the sources of compensation to you are more numerous.
