Was The Injury Preventable?
Electrocution and electrical burn injury cases are usually preventable accidents that somebody failed to prevent. The following are examples of the causes:
- Faulty wiring or equipment
- Failure to turn off electricity to power lines when workers need to work on or near them
- Lack of safety protection to workers
Under section 241(6) of the New York State Labor Law, contractors, property owners and others may be liable for injuries or deaths caused by safety violations such as unsafe wiring. If the injury was caused by the negligence of another party, you may be entitled to compensation beyond workers’ compensation case through our civil justice system.
Our lawyers are committed to helping you recover the maximum compensation you are due. We have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for injured construction workers and their families.
