The North Dakota Lawyers You Trust When You Have Sustained an Electrical Shock Injury
Helping families who lost loved ones because of electrocution
Industrial settings can be dangerous places to work, particularly when reasonable safety measures are ignored. Electrical issues and fires are common accidents that occur in these settings. Resulting injuries often require extensive and costly medical treatment and lengthy recoveries. Victims of third-degree burns due to fire or electricity may have to endure months of painful reconstructive surgery and physical therapy. They can also suffer from the psychological challenges for the rest of their lives.
Larson Law Firm P.C. has spent more than 35 years providing industrial workers with personal and professional help for their injury claims. Our professional North Dakota electrical injury attorneys are dedicated to helping those who are left to suffer due to the negligent or reckless actions of others.
What you should know about electrical injuries
Electrical injuries fall into three categories:
- Shocks. Electric shocks are caused by an electrical current flowing through a person’s body. They can cause cardiac arrest, damage to the muscles, broken bones, and excruciating pain. If the person is shocked with enough current, he or she may be flung back, increasing the risk of a traumatic brain injury.
- Burns. Electrical burns can occur inside the body as well as outside of it. The heads, hands, and feet are the most commonly burned areas. Depending on the voltage, a person may sustain permanent scarring and disfigurement.
- Electrocution. Electrocution is a fatal injury. It occurs when an electrical current passes through the body. It causes significant damage to the muscles and tissue, and can cause the heart to stop.
Causes of burn injuries and electrical accidents
At the Larson Law Firm, we have worked with numerous clients who sustained severe, life-altering electrical burns and shocks, and with the families of workers who died as a result of electrocution. Our legal team understands the extensive hardship that victims and families face when these tragic accidents occur. We diligently represent burn injury victims in cases involving:
- Work vehicle accidents
- Oil field accidents
- Chemical burns
- Electrocution on construction sites
If negligence by an employer or third-party contractor contributed to the accident, we uncover safety violations and other acts of negligence that caused the fire or electrocution. Our dedicated burn injury lawyers are ready to fight for the compensation you need and the justice you deserve.
