Electric Shock Injuries
A serious electric shock can result in long-term heart and breathing problems and burns, as well as muscle and nerve damage that can leave you disabled for the rest of your life. Often, in electric shock injuries on the job, the injured employee is not a licensed electrical Worker.
Every year, thousands of Workers are hurt or even fatally injured in construction site accidents. While construction companies are responsible for the safety of the Workers and the work environment, in certain circumstances, a landowner or occupier may be liable for the dangerous conditions on the premises.
Some states have enacted laws that prevent an employee from suing his employer after an on-the-job injury. Additionally, some states put limits on the amount of compensation an employee may recover from a work-site injury. Sometimes it is necessary to find a party other than the employer that was liable for the injuries. Our experienced Work Injury Lawyer can advise you of your rights and explain what type of compensation you may be entitled to.
