Establishing Your Recovery From A Serious Electrocution Accident

Every year in the U.S., there are hundreds of deaths that can be attributed to electrocution and thousands more burn injuries that result from electric shock. At Schmitt Law Firm, LLC, we work diligently to ensure victims receive the financial compensation they deserve to cover medical expenses, lost wages and other costs associated with electric shock and electrocution accident injuries.

Your Recovery From Electrocution Injuries At Work Or From Power Lines

The majority of electrocution injuries occur because of contact with power lines in the course of employment. Many people who work in construction frequently work in close proximity to power lines, whether above ground or underground:

  • Operations requiring trenching or digging can result in making contact with underground lines.
  • A worker may come in contact with overhead power lines when operating a boom truck or crane.

Regardless of how your electrocution occurred, our Kansas City workers' compensation lawyers will protect your legal rights and aggressively pursue the comprehensive benefits or compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Who Is Liable When You Are Electrocuted At Work?

We will hold negligent parties accountable for safety errors on the job site. Before beginning work on a construction site, general contractors should identify the location of all overhead power lines. This is particularly important when workers will be using ladders or other equipment that could potentially come in contact with power lines while performing the job.

While it is not always a simple matter to identify which party or parties should be held liable in the case of an electrical injury, we will work diligently to determine who is at fault, who can be held accountable and to obtain the full and fair value of your injury claim.
