Fires, Electrocution, Burn Injuries

Experiencing a traumatic accident or injury that involves explosions, burns, electrocutions and fires is no longer a rare event in our society. With the arrival of cutting edge technical and new products and developmental advancements they are bringing with them new dangers and an increase in accidents.

Hundreds of avoidable electrical accidents happen each year, many resulting in severe injuries and sometimes death.  These accidents are often caused by negligence – poor safety standards, lack of maintenance or bad electrical wiring.   These accident can also happen from a repairman or subcontractor who has failed to comply with applicable standards or a power company that failed to fix a power line.  It can even happen in products, especially those who manufactures are using sub-standard parts or parts that are not installed properly. 

Some of the most severe injuries suffered stem from accidents involving electricity. Electrical accidents can cause death and serious injury. Thus, there are special laws that regulate and precautions that are necessary when either a consumer or worker has to deal with electricity.

Types of electrical accidents include, but are not limited to:

  • Accidents to electricians
  • Construction accidents
  • High voltage switches and lines
  • HECO and HELCO installations
  • Crane contacts with high voltage
  • Sagging power lines
  • Uninsulated transmission line contacts
  • Failures to properly ground outlets and wiring
  • Frayed or damaged wiring
  • Unguarded or unfenced power installations
