West Virginia Electrical Injury Attorney
Do you need legal assistance after sustaining electrical injuries?

An electrical shock is capable of sending a significant amount of energy coursing through your body causing burn injuries, and heart damage. Contact with high voltage could leave you permanently disfigured and fighting for your life. The attorneys at Fitzsimmons Law Firm PLLC have been advocating for victims' rights since 1978. They have seen all different levels of injuries and understand the pain and suffering that can be caused by an electrocution or other type of electrical injury.

Types of Electrical Injuries Seen in West Virginia Workplace Accidents
Electrical injuries can be categorized into four major groups: electric shock, burn injuries and disfigurement, contact with a live energy source, and fatal electrocution. These injuries are most commonly seen at construction sites, in factories, with employees who use high-powered machinery and tools, and with others whose work brings them into contact with exposed wires or electrical currents. Worksites that fail to exercise safety precautions and employ ground fault protection could endanger workers to electrical explosions or deadly fires. Defective equipment can also be responsible for causing fatal electrical injuries.
