A significant portion of burn injuries are electrical burns. Electrical burns are injuries caused by contact with electrical currents. The Mayo Clinic reports that “an electrical injury can cause damage to internal tissues” and that the “damage may be worse than one would expect from the burn on the skin.” Because of the properties of electrical currents, electrical burns can have severe complications that are not immediately observable.
Like other burns, electrical burns can be categorized by degrees of severity. A first-degree electrical burn can be treated like other minor burns; a third-degree electrical burn, however, can result in seizures, cardiac arrest, muscle contractions, loss of consciousness, or fatality.Who is Responsible for Electrical Burns?
When filing for financial compensation for an electrical burn injury, it is important to identify the liable party. If your burn injury was caused by the negligence of an individual or corporation, the liable party should be held responsible.
Some examples of electrical burn injuries caused by negligence include:
- Electrical burns caused by utility companies’ failure to properly maintain power lines
- Electrical burns resulting from manufacturer’s negligence in selling faulty products
- Electrical burns resulting from landlord’s negligence in safety maintaining rental properties
- Electrical burns resulting from employer’s negligence (such as failure to properly train employees working with electrical currents or failure to maintain safe working conditions)
