A Serious Electrical Injury Can Cause a Lifetime of Pain and Disability
Staged electrical shocks may appear to be funny on television, where the low voltage makes the cartoon character’s hair stand on end. Anybody who has ever suffered a serious, high-voltage shock will tell you, though, there is nothing funny about them. A serious electrical injury can cause severe burns to the immediate area of contact, but can also cause heart damage and other catastrophic injuries.
If you suffered a serious electrical injury at work or because of a defective consumer product in your home, make sure you get treated and tested thoroughly by a medical professional. In many cases, the effects of the shock won’t be immediately evident. In addition to medical treatment, seek the advice of an experienced personal injury lawyer at the Robinette Legal Group. There may have been a serious defect in the product that produced the electrical shock or the property owner may have been negligent in a warning or protecting the public from harm.
