Electrocution (Electric Shock) Injury Accidents

Have you or a loved one suffered from an electrocution?

Electricity is a deadly force that must be handled with the highest care. When a utility pole falls because of improper maintenance, or when a contractor or sub-contractor installs dangerous temporary wiring, the result can be serious electrical burn or electrocution. At Patterson Legal Group, our team understands the technology behind electrical accidents and the serious nature of the medical issues involved.
When a utility pole caused an electrocution, Patterson Legal Group, LC held a company accountable for their actions.

An employee using a bucket truck suffered severe electrical burns from live power lines and our lawyers obtained our client compensation for his injuries.

Electrical Injuries from Power Lines

Live overhead power lines account for 40% of all electrocutions. Electrical companies that maintain these power lines are aware of the dangerous nature of a live electrical line, yet individuals are injured at a very high frequency. Kansas laws require electric companies to :

  • Properly install and maintain electrical wires;
  • Fix sags or low-hanging wires;
  • Keep power lines a safe distance from homes and businesses;
  • Quickly repair fallen power lines due to weather conditions.

When an electric company does not follow these laws, and fails to exercise reasonable care to protect the public, it may be held responsible.

Consumer Electric Injuries

In some cases, a defective product is the culprit of an electrocution. If you have suffered an injury from an electric shock of a household appliance, power tool, or any other tool that is powered by electricity, you may have the right to file a suit against the manufacturer, distributor, or seller of your product to recover medical expenses, lost wage, and pain and suffering.

Unfortunately, some electrocution and electrical burn accidents result in a wrongful death. Other electrical burns may cause a long, painful, and in many cases, lifelong road to recovery. The team at Patterson Legal Group, LC will work to protect you right and fight to get the compensation you need for what may be lifelong treatment for your injuries.  Call us today for a free initial consultation at (888) 687-2400.
