Electrical Shock and Electrocution Accidents

Electrical shock or electrocution accidents can have serious, often fatal, affect on a person. The damage that can be caused from exposure to an electrical shock includes cardiac arrest due to the electricity’s effect on the heart; muscle, nerve, and tissue destruction from an electrical current passing through the body; and thermal burns from contact with the electrical source.

Electrocution injuries can occur at any time and in a variety of ways. High voltage electrical lines are virtually everywhere and when contacted can result in devastating injuries including loss of limbs. Contact with high voltage electricity often results in death. Some people who have come into contact with an electrical power source do not show serious outward signs of injury, but their internal organs may have been damaged.

Most people do not realize that serious injury and death can also result from contact with a very small amount of electrical current. Electrical shock from a small amount of current is often the result of a defective product such as appliances, power tools, or medical devices. Faulty installations or repairs can also result in electrocution and is a primary cause of electrical accidents in the home.
