Causes of Powerline Electrocution Injuries from Power Lines

Electrical shock occurs when a person comes into contact with a live electrical wire, either directly or indirectly, allowing the electricity to flow through the body and exiting it through the circuit.

Power line injuries can be life-threatening, hence one must maintain distance from power lines; however, even when you’re careful, there may be situations where you might get electrocuted.

Let’s look at some of the causes of a powerline injury:

  • Human error: People are prone to making mistakes and those working in a utility company (electric company) are no exception. Leaving a fuse open can get energized and if no one is aware of it, it can give an electrical shock to those getting in contact with the wire.
  • Code violations: Codebooks are complex and for relevant authorities to follow to avoid any serious injuries or accidents. However, since these are very complex to follow, there can be misunderstandings and many code violations that occur can go unnoticed until an incident or injury gets reported.
  • Negligence: Power companies are responsible for maintaining power boxes across the country and ensure its safety and the people’s safety. Power boxes must be inaccessible to the general public but sometimes negligence on behalf of the company can cause electric shock injuries and accidents.

There are also incidents of downed power lines that can electrocute those passing by or start a fire resulting in massive property damage besides electrical injuries. Our Los Angeles burn injury lawyers have have experience and a proven track record for winning big in these cases.

Power Line Injuries to Workers

Not only are consumers affected by faulty powerlines but also workers and laborers who deal with powerlines as part of their jobs such as construction workers, utility workers, and more.

Working with live electrical wires without proper safety equipment can cause severe injuries. When an electrical current passes from one point of the body and exits through the other, it can leave the victim in serious pain resulting in electrical burns, tissue damage, third-degree burns, and more.

Depending on the severity of the electrical burn, medical treatment costs can skyrocket.

In severe electric shock accidents, injury victims often face internal injuries that are hard to determine such as cardiovascular issues, kidney damage, blurred vision, and more. A strong electrical current can send an electric shock victim to their death. An injury victim would need to get a qualified downed power line injury lawyer to get them the compensation they deserve to pay for the medical bills.
