What is a power cables injury?
Anybody who has ever worked on a construction site will know that the dangers associated with power cables are many and varied. However, these dangers are not restricted to the workplace. Power cables can pose a threat in houses, flats, shops and office blocks too – any building in which wiring is damaged, poorly maintained or exposed.
There are various different types of accident that can occur because of contact with damaged or unstable power cables. It is important for you to be aware of the dangers and to be honest about where fault for injury lies. You cannot, for example, claim compensation for injuries sustained after being clearly notified of the dangers – unless the power cables are exposed and located in a public or residential environment.
In this latter case, you are bound to have a strong case for compensation. If contractors have left exposed power cables in your home or place of business, a crucial duty of care has been neglected. It is either the responsibility of the building owner to keep cables and other dangerous equipment well maintained and out of the way, or it is the responsibility of the person or authority that has undertaken work on the power cables and left them in a poor condition.
