About Electrocution Injuries
Electrocution can cause serious burns, permanent brain damage, heart damage, blindness, cellular damage, amputation and death. Electrocution can lead to physical damages such as paralysis as well as neurological and psychological effects. Injuries due to electric shock can be life changing to victims as well as their families. Victims that survive the effects of electrocution are often left with outrageous medical bills and a decreased quality of life.
While most electrocution accidents occur in the workplace, improper wiring and defective household products can cause electric shock in the home or in other places. Numerous household products like power tools, hair dryers, appliances and other electronics can pose electrocution risks when they are defective or unsafe for use. Likewise, exposed wires and outlets without grinding can be hazardous to others, especially children who can suffer serious injuries from lower voltages than adults.
