Electrocution Accidents on Construction Sites

Let a Chicago Construction Accident Attorney Protect Your Rights

Construction sites are filled with potential hazards, including the risk of serious electrocution accidents.

About Electrocution Accidents

According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OHSA), electrocution accidents are one of the most common types of construction accidents. In fact, electrocution is part of OSHA's Fatal Four, and causes roughly 8% of fatalities on construction sites each year. In addition to electrocution and shock, these accidents can also lead to burn injuries, arc flashes, fires, and explosions that place workers, pedestrians, and nearby residents at risk of suffering harm.

Common hazards that may lead to electrocution accidents on construction sites include:

  • Electrical work in progress
  • Exposed wiring
  • Defective equipment
  • Negligent machine operation
  • Improper warnings

Because electrocution accidents have a high potential for resulting in catastrophic injuries or wrongful death, victims and families should retain the seasoned representation needed to secure a full recovery of their damages, which may include:

  • Medical bills and future treatment costs
  • Lost work earnings
  • Disability or death benefits
  • Pain and suffering
  • Emotional anguish

Exercise Your Legal Rights with Proven Attorneys

When electrocution accidents are the result of dangerous safety hazards or violations of safety protocol that could or should have been prevented, victims should be intent on speaking with experienced lawyers about their right to legal action. At Morici, Longo & Associates, we are readily available to help victims and their families evaluate their case and take the next steps - whether that means a workers' compensation claim or a personal injury lawsuit.
