Electrocution in Construction Accidents
Baton Rouge Electrocution Accident Attorneys
Working near power lines or in any setting that can expose a person to contact with electrical current is extremely hazardous. Construction workers face this risk virtually every day, and the consequences of any negligence in observing safety measures are often devastating. Fatal electrocution can occur in an instant, and even the briefest electrical exposure can cause catastrophic burns and permanent neurological damage.
If a family member has been tragically electrocuted or you have been injured by electrical exposure on the job, your decision to contact an attorney for counsel could be critical for your future. Although workers’ compensation benefits may be available to address some needs and damages, many such cases call for thorough investigation and action against a negligent party other than the victim’s employer.
