Orange County Electrocution Lawyers
Recovering Compensation for Injury Victims
Electrical equipment is very dangerous, and requires a high level of education and skill to operate correctly. Even if you are not doing in-depth electrical repairs, coming in contact with anything electrical can yield harmful results if the source has not been properly maintained, or is defective. Malfunctioning devices, shoddy wiring, or any carelessness by the people who built or worked on an electrical source can cause harm to users.

The Cost of an Electrocution Injury
Burns and external harm are the injuries most commonly associated with electrocution, but an electrical accident can cause severe injury to the body’s internal systems as well. Our hearts, brains, and nervous system rely on electricity to function properly, and an intense shock caused by electrocution can severely disrupt the harmony of our internal networks. Additionally, in extreme cases, the force of an electrocution can cause a person to be thrown back from the source, and/or fall in situations where the electrical device is at a height.
Injuries that can result from an electric shock incident include:
- Cardiac arrest or other effects on the heart
- Internal injury to muscles, nerves, or organs, including the brain and heart
- Bone fractures, bruises, etc. resulting from the shock throwing a victim backward
Recovering from electrocution may require expensive surgeries or skin grafts, and related treatment costs such as medication, devices, and frequent doctor visits. Recovery can take a long time, contributing to lost wages. In fatal cases, a victim’s family will be required to pay funeral costs as well.
If you or a loved one was injured by electrocution, contact The Law Office of Marshall Silberberg. Our Orange County electrocution lawyers are dedicated to recovering compensation for these costs, and holding the negligent responsible for your family’s pain and suffering.
