Successful Electrical Injury Lawsuits
Electrical injuries occur when part of the body has come into contact with electricity. It can cause a variety of injuries and some of them can be debilitating. The types of injuries that may be experienced as a result of electric shock include:
- Heart problems
- Muscle strains or tears
- Soft tissue injury
- Complete muscle and nerve failure
- Nerve damage
- Permanent thermal burns at the point of contact
- Broken bones
- Brain injury
One of the frightening aspects of electrical shock is the range of injuries that can occur. They can be minor or they can result in lifelong disability. Regardless, the injury results in lost wages, medical bills, and other costs. Your Minnesota personal injury attorney will be able to investigate the matter and determine what compensation you are entitled to.
Holding Responsible Parties Accountable
Your attorney will determine who is responsible for the electric shock and hold them accountable for their negligence. There may be one party responsible or more than one. If there are multiple parties, then they can be named in the personal injury lawsuit and be held liable for the monetary damages. Responsible parties can include the landlord or owner of a structure, a condo or housing association, the city council if the incident occurred in a public area, a daycare or childcare facility, a school, your place of work, an electrical company or contractor who exercised poor safety practices, or an individual. Your Minnesota personal injury will identify the parties and why they were responsible. The exact act of negligence can be specified and this can strengthen your case.
The types of damages that you could recover include emotional distress, pain and suffering, medical expenses, lost wages, lost future wages, funeral and burial costs, and other relevant costs. When you receive the compensation that you deserve, you do not have to worry about the financial aspects of the injury as you work to move past the event.
