The law firm of Glasheen, Valles & Inderman has 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 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.
We 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.
We invite you to contact us for a free consultation to review the facts of your case and to discuss your options with respect to recovering compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, loss of wages, emotional distress and other damages.
Our firm has the expertise and resources available to analyze special electrical codes to look for violations under both OSHA Regulations and the National Electrical Safety Code.
