Electrocution is very serious, as it can result in serious injury. Unfortunately, it very frequently results in death. If it does result in death, then the family may have a wrongful death claim against those responsible for the act that led to the electrocution.
If you have been injured due to electrocution or you have lost a family member because someone’s negligence led to their electrocution, you may be able to recover monetary damages that cover funeral expenses, medical expenses, loss of support, and lost wages. Your Southern Minnesota personal injury lawyer will be able to evaluate the case to determine who is at fault, why they are at fault, and what can be done for you so that you can move forward in the best way possible.
Experienced Wrongful Death Representation
If a loved one was electrocuted, there are a number of causes behind such an accident. They include:
- Parts of an electrical appliance or wiring that was exposed and not supposed to be, resulting in accidental contact.
- Young children being around electrical wires and biting or chewing them.
- Defective products
- High voltage power lines that begin arcing
- Lightning strikes
Whatever the cause, the individuals can be held responsible for monetary damages when they are at fault for the accident.
