Electrical injuries and accidents happen suddenly and without warning. Most electrical injuries occur in the workplace, although construction workers and electrical or cable professions have the highest risk. The California State and federal governments enforce strict electrical codes and licensing requirements for electricians for a reason. Any mistake in wiring or grounding can send high voltage through everyone who comes in contact with the equipment.
These accidents tend to occur in the workplace where there are several kinds of common electrical injuries such as: burns, electric shock, electrocution, falling off a ladder or scaffold, nerve and muscle damage, cardiac arrest or irregular heart rhythm, comas, amputation and physical deformity. Electrical accidents in Sacramento can also result in fatalities — some of which occur immediately and some of which occur after some time has passed.
In addition to workplace electrical accidents, if you suffered an electrical injury while using a household appliance, power tool or any other product that runs on electricity, you may have the right to file a claim against the designer, manufacturer and distributor of the product to recover your medical expenses, lost earnings, loss of enjoyment and pain and suffering.
