Columbia Electrocution Attorneys

Unstable construction sites can be extremely dangerous for workers and passersby alike. Especially when it comes to electrical work, precautions are extremely necessary to ensure the safety of everyone involved. Live wires, poor wiring, and deteriorated wires, amongst many other conditions can make electrical construction sites hazardous. Whether your injury was a result of workplace negligence or simply an accident, you may be eligible for financial compensation.

At the Goings Law Firm, LLC, our Columbia electrocution attorneys recognize how physically and financially debilitating a serious injury can be. Our legal team can help you assess your options and build a case for financial compensation to cover any expenses that resulted from your accident.

Common Electrocution Injuries

The danger of an electric current depends on the current (and therefore the voltage), frequency, and the length of time it flows through the body. The most important factor, however, is the path the current takes. Three main forms of injury can result from electric shock:

  • Cardiac Arrest: If the electric current travels through the muscle tissue of a vital organ—such as the heart—it can be fatal. Depending on the current, electrocution that affects the heart can simply interrupt the normal beat pattern—causing rapid and irregular heartbeats—or it can stop the heart altogether.
  • Muscle/Nerve/Tissue Damage: Electrical currents pass very easily through the nervous and muscular systems and can severely burn tissue along the way. The results of muscle, nerve, and tissue damage vary widely in pain and long-term symptoms.
  • Burns: Electric shock can cause internal burns as well as external ones. Skin burns are one of the main symptoms. Even low voltage shocks can leave severe burns on the skin. However, higher voltage levels of 500 volts or more can cause internal burns due to the high-energy trauma to the cells. Burns to the heart or the spinal cord can result in permanent damage or even fatality.

These serious injuries can take a heavy toll on your day-to-day life and activities. However, it can be difficult to know the extent of your injuries, especially if the proper medical procedures were not followed in the wake of your accident. Common symptoms of more serious injuries, like those listed above, include:

  • Chest Pains
  • Irregular Heartbeats
  • Headache or Migraine
  • Muscle Spasms
  • Muscle Pain
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Seizures
  • Problems with Memory or Concentration

Electrical shocks can result in serious and devastating injuries that can make life much more difficult for you and your family. However, a compensation claim or civil suit may allow you to pursue the fair compensation you need to recover.
