Pennsylvania Electric Shock Accidents
Research conducted by the Bureau of Labor Statistics indicates that electrocution is the second leading cause of death in the construction industry over a 10-year period. Across all industries, more than five percent of workplace fatalities result from electrocution. According to the Electrical Safety Foundation International, consumer products cause thousands of nonfatal shock injuries annually, including an average of 60 electrocution deaths each year.
Nonfatal electrical accidents can cause extremely serious injuries, including severe electrical burns, nerve damage, loss of use of the injured body part and damage to numerous internal organs. If you or a loved one has suffered a serious injury in one of these accidents, you would be well advised to contact an electrocution burn injury lawyer in Pittsburgh with the ability to protect your interests.
