West Virginia Personal Injury Attorney
Victims of accidents involving electricity commonly face a difficult period
of recovery, due to the severity of this type of injury. Electricity in
any quantity can be dangerous to the human body, and when it is present
in large volumes it can be fatal. In addition to the pain and suffering
of an electrocution, the victim may have to confront a future of living
with disfigurement due to
burn injuries or disability from neurological damage. Beyond the personal damage, victims
of electrocution usually have to cope with bills for expensive emergency
medical treatment and lost wages during recovery.
Many personal injury lawsuits following electrocution accidents are
wrongful death claims on behalf of the victim's family. Electricity in high voltage
will commonly not only cause severe burns but may also cause heart failure,
resulting in death. In this type of case it is vital to recover sufficient
compensation to help the family get by in the absence of the income of
their lost loved one. While no amount of money can replace your loss,
you can at least take legal action to protect yourself from financial
