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 difficulty.
