Electrical injuries at work

While there are many different types of injuries that can occur while you are at work in California, electrical injuries may be one of the least expected, but also one of the most dangerous. We at Koszdin, Fields, Sherry and Katz understand the risks associated with these injuries and can help you fight for the compensation you deserve if you or a loved one were killed or injured during an electrical accident at work.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are some types of electrical accidents that are more likely to occur than others. This type of injury most commonly involves items that you would not expect to be dangerous, such as light fixtures, tools, appliances and certain machines. Other more obvious dangers include electrical components, including transformers and wiring. 

Power lines can also create risky situations when they are both buried and overhead. Workers in the construction, farming and other industries that involve digging are most likely to come in contact with power lines that are underground. Contact with overhead lines most often occur when workers are carrying ladders or driving trucks that have booms or cranes attached. 

Construction workers are the most likely group to be involved in fatal electrical accidents, while electricians and their apprentices most often suffer electrical injuries. You also have a high chance of injury if you are completing a service job or working as a mechanic.
