Electrocution Injuries

The law firm of Glasheen, Valles & Inderman has many electrocution injury lawyers who have handled several electrocution cases. We have handled cases against public utilities for transmission lines that were located too low over an apartment building, work place electrocutions, cases for electricians who were required to do hot work installing light fixtures at commercial locations, cases involving defective electrical equipment at the work place where a fuse box exploded and burned a worker, and numerous other electrical injuries. Please have a look at our electrocution injury lawyer’s proven results of awards won by our clients.

Although electrocutions sometimes occur in the home, electrocution injuries are among the most common workplace personal injury cases. Often, they are the result of negligence, reckless or a violation of local, state or federal rules and regulations.

In public, a property owner and in the workplace an employer, has an obligation to provide a safe working environment, free from reasonably foreseeable hazards. Sometimes, individuals take short cuts to cut costs. Other times, they fail to provide adequate training of safety protocols.

If you or a loved one suffered injuries in an electrocution accident, you may be entitled to compensation. These types of cases require careful analysis of the facts underlying the incident, and often, they require expert opinions in order to mount the strongest possible case.

Our experienced electrocution injury lawyers have experience in representing injured victims and obtaining substantial settlements and verdicts for individuals who have suffered personal injuries both in and out of the workplace, including as a result of electrocution accidents.

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident regardless of where you live, we will be happy to evaluate your potential case through a free consultation.

    Responsibility In Electrocution Injuries

    Industrial and construction sites are some of the most common places where electrocutions occur. This is why safety should be a top priority for site managers, employee trainers, and employers. When safety precautions and regulations are not met, people get hurt. These injuries are the responsibility of those who failed to make the situation safe. Once the specific failure is identified, the at-fault party is responsible for covering the damages suffered by the injured party. This can include covering medical costs, lost wages, death benefits, and temporary disability benefits.

    Below is a list of some of the most-frequently-asked questions by our clients and prospective clients. If you still have any questions, feel free to contact us.

    • Why should I hire an attorney?

      Potential defendants are usually covered by insurance. The insurance companies are notified immediately when an accident occurs, and they usually hire attorneys and expert witnesses to investigate the claim. It is important that witnesses be interviewed as soon as possible and evidence be preserved. Witnesses will often be more difficult to locate or will have a poor memory if they are interviewed much later after the accident has occurred. Evidence such as machinery parts or skid marks on the highway will disappear unless preserved quickly. Insurance companies have insurance adjusters who will contact you and try to be friendly. You should not trust the statements that insurance adjusters make to you. They are not working for you and will sometimes make misleading statements in an effort to trick you into resolving your case. Insurance adjusters also might record your conversations with them and use your statements against you in order to try to save money for the insurance companies.

      The main thing we try to impress upon people is that it’s never too early to talk to an attorney, and it’s always too late. By that we mean that speaking with an attorney very soon after a crash or other accident in no way will harm you. Along the same lines, the longer you try to handle a claim on your own or delay hiring competent counsel, irreparable damage can be done in the form of recorded statements given to the insurance companies and evidence not being preserved. There is no risk or fee for speaking with an attorney and arranging an initial consultation.

    • How and when do I pay for a personal injury attorney?

      Most personal injury attorneys work on what is called a contingency fee basis, which means that you pay the attorney only if and when the attorney has successfully made a recovery in your case, either by settlement or by winning a jury trial. Our philosophy is that clients have enough to worry about, so clients at Glasheen, Valles & Inderman never pay us a dime out of their pockets directly; when you’re case is finished, the insurance company sends a check to our law firm, we take our percentage fee from that check, and send the remainder to the client.

      In the rare event we are unable to make a recovery on your case, you still don’t pay us a dime, and that even includes case costs, court costs, expert fees, and any advances. There is truly zero risk in hiring a personal injury law firm like Glasheen, Valles & Inderman.

    • What is my claim worth?

      Personal injury claims are usually resolved by either settlement or by a jury. When a case is settled, it is the client’s decision of whether or not to accept a settlement offer. The lawyer will advise the client as to the potential value of the claim. Lawyers evaluate the potential value of a claim by predicting what a jury would do based on experience with similar claims.A jury can consider all sorts of damages in a personal injury case including medical expenses in the past and in the future, loss of earnings in the past and in the future as a result of the injury, physical pain and mental anguish in the past and in the future, compensation for impairment – that is loss of use, and disfigurement damages. The jury has discretion in awarding the sums. We can give you advice on the value of your claim based on our experience with some of our claims and similar jury results.

    • How long will my claim take to resolve?

      The time it takes to resolve a personal injury claim depends very much on the type of case. We believe that it is important to prosecute claims as quickly and efficiently as possible. We usually like to have our client finish with their medical treatment so that we can fully and properly evaluate their injuries before we attempt to settle the claim. Sometimes we can assist a client with making advances to cover lost wages or living expenses while the client is waiting for the case to be resolved. Typically, automobile accident cases with fairly minor injuries can be resolved in about six months. More serious accident cases usually take anywhere from six months up to a year and a half or longer.
