Charlotte Electrocution Accident Attorney
A defective machine, exposed wires and other mishaps can quickly lead to serious electrical injuries. In some cases, it can also cause electrocution, which is a death caused by electricity.
Regardless of the exact cause, if you were injured at work in an electrical accident, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation. Likewise, if you lost a loved one, the workers’ compensation insurer may be obligated to pay death benefits to a deceased employee’s dependents and/or next of kin.

After an electrical injury or electrocution on the job, we will work directly with you to make sure you understand your options, your rights under the law and how our firm can help you.

Compensation After an Electrical Injury
If you were injured in an electrical accident at work, workers’ compensation can help you cover the cost of your medical care. It can also provide a disability benefit if you are unable to return to work as a result of your injuries.
Additionally, if your injury was the result of the negligence of a third party, you may be able to bring a personal injury claim. Workers’ compensation laws generally bar you from bringing a negligence claim directly against your employer, or a co-employee. However, if the negligence of a third party — such as a machine manufacturer or an electrician — caused your injury, then you may have a claim.
We help clients who have suffered all types of electrical injuries at work, including:
- Electrical burns
- Heart problems form electrical shock
- Injuries from muscle spasms and lack of muscle control during the accident
Electrocution and Wrongful Death
If you have lost a loved one in a fatal work accident, you have rights and options under the law. While we understand that no amount of compensation can ever make up for your loss, we also know the toll the costs of a funeral and the loss of income can have on a family. We can help ease the financial losses brought about by the loss of your loved one so you can get the help you need during this difficult time.
