How you could sustain electric shock injuries


Are you aware of how you could sustain electric shock injuries?

There are a great many people annually in the United Kingdom who are the victims of electric shock injuries and who require medical treatment. You might not have considered the reasons behind how you could sustain electric shock injuries but it is perhaps something that you should think about. These accidents can happen anywhere at any time and to anyone. You don’t need to work with electric to suffer from such injuries.

Accident Advice Helpline can help you secure compensation if you have been the victim of an electrical accident. Whether the result of poorly wired equipment, faulty wiring or other electricity-related accident, we can ensure you receive the compensation you are entitled to after your accident.


What kinds of electrical accident could befall you?

The victims of accidents involving electricity are often cited as having no idea the accident was going to happen. Indeed this is the case with most accident types but with electricity it can be even more unpredictable.

Faulty wiring, poorly put together electrical appliances, mixing water with electricity, and having untrained personnel work with electricity: all of these can lead to accidents where the victims are injured through no fault of their own. These are just some of the ways as to how you could sustain electric shock injuries.

As the victim of an electrical accident you could well have experienced severe burns. These burns are indicative of the way in which the electrical current tries to make its way out of the body after the initial shock.

Depending on the nature of the electrical accident, the passage of the current through the body can stun the victim, resulting in the stopping of their breath and their heart. This is referred to as cardiac arrest and without appropriate first aid on the scene it can be fatal.
