An electric current passing through a person’s body is hazardous to life and limb. These are not your typical premises liability cases. They often involved severely damaged or dead victims. High voltage or other overhead power lines snapping can leave the individual paralyzed, burned, and electrocuted with lifelong breathing, numbness, seizures, and smoke damage to the exposed lungs.

Injury, Disability, Death Attorney

In severe cases, your family may be facing the decision to make a wrongful death claim against government agencies, public utilities, and other companies for various reasons. Surviving victims face accompanying grief, suffering, and complexities.

This fatal type of injury damages the internal organs and the external skin upon an electric shock and accompanying electrical burns. Our professional attorney will discuss your rights and all the details you need. We will assist you or your loved ones involved in a California electrocution claim against all liable parties.

These parties include a product manufacturer (defective product) and anyone else responsible for your safety. We can help you through your pain and suffering on the road to justice in an overhead powerline case and others.

What Qualities Must You Seek In Your Attorney?

A victim’s most extensive critique is that their burn injury lawyer does not have the right communication skills. Insurers will avoid giving financial compensation, and you need a qualified Southern California electrocution injury attorney with the right communication skills to negotiate with the insurance company. This is how we get you maximum financial compensation for things like nerve damage, brain damage, and issues with electrical current-related peripheral nerves recently lost. We’ll even consult life care planners and accident reconstructionists to win your electric shock accident.

Your lawyer should take care of all the legal processes, from investigating property owners and assisting other dependents with understanding their legal options. The case to determining the damages, proving the negligent party liable, collecting evidence or medical attention, construction industry standards of care, and filing claims within two years (statute of limitations).

Insurers might decline claims or refuse to negotiate even after having all the paperwork in place. In such cases, your lawyer should be ready to take them to trial on behalf of the severely damaged victim.

Below we will answer some questions more commonly asked by our newer personal injury clients.

What Makes Live Electricity So Dangerous To Life?

Electricity is a vast, moving array of physical phenomena that scientists/electrical engineers associate with presenting electrically charged properties. Electricity and magnetism remain closely associated with marvels of electromagnetism. (See Maxwell’s equations). Experts have identified various universal phenomena related to electricity.

Observers have described the effects of galvanism as lightning, static electricity, electric-powered heating systems, electric discharges, etc. Electricity remains at the heart of flourishing; modern economies are primarily powered by coal and oil fuel. Thomas Edison made the first commercially viable lightbulb in 1879, and now we have Tesla, an electric vehicle making headlines.

However, with all these positive advancements possible with electricity, there are certainly consequences for abusing electricity or not handling it properly. The severity of the consequences depends on the type of electricity you are dealing with:

  • Alternating current
  • Direct current.

Let’s look at the two and determine which is the most dangerous (electrocution remains a grievous, sometimes fatal injury).

Alternating Versus Direct Current?

Alternating current (AC) consists of an electric current periodically reversing its circuit flow, whereas direct current (DC) flows uni-directionally. This does impact the damage the current delivers.

Which Current Presents Humans With the Most Dangers, AC or DC?

Several studies conducted on men and women (some professionals from the industry) point out why each current is dangerous.

Let’s look at the different arguments to understand better what you are dealing with when getting electrocuted.

Is DC More Dangerous than AC?

Since DC flows continuously, it is tough for injury victims to pull themselves back from the electrocution shock. While on the other hand, it is relatively more straightforward for injury victims to pull themselves back from an AC when it goes to zero since AC has an irregular flow.

Is AC More Dangerous than DC?

When DC flows, it delivers continuous muscle contraction, safer than a series of different muscle contractions with AC currents. This can further damage muscles and tissues, resulting in a deeper internal injury.

Since AC voltage changes rapidly, it increases the current exponentially, giving a severe electric shock to the victim. On the other hand, more DC is needed to deliver the same amount of damage.

Why Did My Whole Body Feel That Electrical Shock?

Although the skin is made from keratin, a protein that has higher resistance levels to electrical currents, the blood vessels and sweat glands contain ions that are good conductors of electricity. This low resistance from blood and sweat glands offers an easy passage for the current to flow. The capacitive effect allows the current to pass through the body quickly; the more voltage fluctuates, the more current passes through the body.

The severity of the current depends on the following factors:

  • Amount of current
  • Path of current
  • Time duration
  • Body resistance

What Is the Amount of Current?

The voltage amount of current lets an individual know how much current is passing through. An individual can get away with pain and some injuries with 15 to 20 milliamperes, but slowly crossing that threshold can result in serious injuries. A 100 milliamperes current has enough power to kill a healthy individual.

What Is Path of Current?

The path of a current plays a role in how much damage a current delivers. For example, an electric shock victim may survive a current that flows from the hand to the leg, although it might be painful. However, a current that flows through the heart is fatal, and a person may not survive it.

What Is Time Duration?

Even the tiniest amount of current for long periods can become painful. A rubber band on a finger does not hurt at first, but it might result in pain after a few minutes. The same is true with an electric current.

What Is Body Resistance?

Body resistance is how much your body provides resistance to flowing current. A wet body will have lower body resistance than a dry body, as liquids are good conductors of electricity. Most people react to fight the current and survive before a complete circuit entraps them to die.

How Much Compensation Can I Receive?

We’ve discussed the first element of a personal injury claim: the severity of the injuries. Besides the injuries, lawyers need to know the current and future medical needs and whether you can continue working with injuries or require off to determine the value of your claims.

However, there are other elements like pain, suffering, and more than a qualified Southern California electrocution injury attorney will consider.

After filing a personal injury claim, your compensation depends on your lawyer’s track record, reputation, and experience.

An insurer will most likely sit on the negotiation table if a qualified and experienced lawyer with an excellent track record gets onto a case. Still, they might refuse claims if an inexperienced lawyer shows up and litigates your business with carelessness.

Insurers research the lawyers assigned to cases to help them avoid bad publicity. A lawyer who settles cases shortly opens room for settlement negotiations. Still, those willing to go to trial and have experience in it are in massive trouble for the insurance company.

Attorneys with trial experience can settle cases for more money and often much faster than those without experience going to trial. Ehline Law and our electrocution accident-injury attorneys have vast experience in going to trial; We are not afraid to take insurance companies to one for your burn injuries or other neurological disorders.
