If you are unfortunate enough to have been injured in an accident involving electricity then you will want to seek the best advice for making an electrocution accident claim. Here at Accident Advice Helpline, we have a team of specialist legal advisers who will help guide you through every step of making a claim against any third party deemed responsible for your accident.
If you are around faulty electrical equipment or exposed live wires the risk of injury or death is high. This will be the case whether you are at home or at work, where, if the electrical equipment has not been properly checked and maintained as per current regulations, either your landlord or employer could be held responsible for your accident.
Electricity can be a real friend, powering and heating our homes and workplaces, however, it can also be a deadly enemy. Severe burns and long-term heart problems can result from electric shock. The heart may be permanently damaged if the shock was severe.
If you have been electrocuted in an accident, through no fault of your own, be sure to contact Accident Advice Helpline as soon as possible in order to talk through your options and find out if you can make a claim for compensation.
