Pasco County, Florida Electrocution Attorneys Whittel & Melton
Working around sources of electricity, including high-voltage transformers and wires can be extremely dangerous, especially when proper safety measures are not taken. When property owners and construction companies fail to follow certain safety protocols and Occupational Safety & Health Administration regulations, workers can be electrocuted. Electrocution can result in severe burns, neurological injuries, organ damage and death.
Most electrical accidents happen in the workplace, predominately affecting construction workers and other professionals constantly exposed to the possibility of electrocution. Defective appliances often cause electrical injuries occurring in the home. In general, human carelessness, negligence and failure to follow safety regulations are to blame for most electrocution injuries. The most common sources of electrical contact injuries include electric appliances, high-voltage power lines, frayed electrical cords, faulty wiring and broken machinery.
In any electrical contact accident case, it is important to understand what caused the accident and what could have been done to prevent any injuries.

Electrical injuries can either be high or low voltage.

Electric shocks can cause contusions, broken bones, fractures, brain injuries and spinal cord injuries.
