Have you lost a loved one due to an electrical injury?
Electrocution can also result in fatality. In fact, around 20 percent of all fatalities are due to electrical shock. If you have lost a loved one due to an electric shock incident, then you may be looking at a wrongful death lawsuit. If the incident could have been prevented with proper maintenance, attention, safety and care by someone else, then this is grounds for a lawsuit.
Electric shocks in the workplace can result in serious injuries.
If you have been electrocuted on the job, then you will most likely need to file a claim for the accident. You may be offered compensation through worker’s compensation. However, in many instances, what is offered will not be enough to cover the costs and complications involved in this type of injury. When injured at work, it is best to consult a Utah personal injury lawyer to confirm that you are getting everything you are entitled to for your suffering.
Outside of the job front, electric shocks can happen in a home, on the street, at a neighbor’s house and anywhere else where electricity runs. Homeowner liability insurance often covers against injuries sustained by electric shock but is this enough?
In many instances, it will not be and you will be looking at several thousands, if not more, of out of pocket expenses. Most insurance companies also do not take your pain and suffering into account. At Coulter & Tateoka, we will work on your behalf to ensure that you are compensated for all your losses, physically, emotionally and financially. This is our promise to you.
