How do electrocution accidents occur in Pennsylvania?

There are a number of ways that electrocution accidents can happen in Pennsylvania. Whether it is new construction, renovation, or negligence, the possibilities can be endless. Some of the most common causes include the following:

  • Electrical outlets placed in unsafe locations
  • Shorts in electrical appliances due to manufacturing defects
  • Improperly discarded extension cords
  • Exposed wires
  • Fallen telephone lines
  • Faulty wiring in hot tubs and pools

What compensation can you pursue after electrocution accidents in Pennsylvania?

If you and your attorney are able to prove your case, you may be eligible to recover any or all of the following economic or non-economic damages:

  • Medical bills and expenses: Electrocution accident victims typically have to undergo extensive treatment, surgeries, and rehabilitation, much of which insurance will not cover. Favorable verdicts could pay for past and future medical treatments.
  • Missed wages (lost and future): Many victims will be unable to work because of the injuries they sustained, resulting in lost wages and a loss of benefits.
  • Pain and suffering: This type of compensation takes into account the emotional trauma and long-term pain you will have to face as a result of your injuries. It can be partly measured by looking at the costs of therapy, the duration of suffering, and more.
  • Wrongful death: In the unfortunate event that a loved one passes away from electrocution, their family can file a claim on behalf of the deceased. Compensation can include funeral expenses, lost wages, and loss of consortium.
