The long term effects of electric shock injuries

Are you dealing with the long term effects of electric shock injuries?

Have you been involved in an accident that wasn’t your fault? Did that accident happen within the last three calendar years? Did you need medical treatment and are now dealing with the long term effects of electric shock injuries? If so, you could be entitled to make a personal injury claim and Accident Advice Helpline is here to provide you with advice and support if you do.

As a law firm, with a speciality in securing personal injury compensation for the victims of accidents, Accident Advice Helpline has a success rate that is second to none and has been helping those injured in accidents since the year 2000. Among the accidents we have helped people make successful claims for are those involving electricity.

Your injuries caused by an electric shock

The long term effects of electric shock injuries can be split into two categories; physical and psychological. As the victim of an accident involving electrical current you may well have been subject to injuries affecting several areas of the body:

  • Head
  • Arms
  • Legs
  • Feet
  • Elbows
  • Torso

These burns can be severe in nature and may require plastic surgery or skin grafts to try and at least repair some of the damage caused. In addition the victim of an accident could suffer hair loss that could be permanent if the follicles become damaged.

From a psychological standpoint, the victims of electric shock accidents have been known to suffer from cognitive issues including:

  • Lack of concentration
  • Mood swings
  • Insomnia
  • A feeling of disconnectedness
  • Anxiety

These physical and psychological effects combined can have a devastating effect on the life of the individual involved in the accident. This is especially profound taking into consideration that the accident itself could have been avoided if only others had taken more care.
