Compensation Claim in Temple


Injuries Caused by Electric Shock

Although many recent safety features on electrical items, plugs and sockets have decreased the number of reported electric shocks, there is still a very real risk that anyone could at any time receive an electric shock.

The scope for injuries caused as a result of an electric shock will obviously depend on the severity of the shock itself but as those injuries could run from a small burn to death, it is essential that people learn firstly how to avoid electric shocks and secondly the first aid they need to assist someone who has been injured.

However, in some cases, the fault for an electric shock lies not with the person involved in the incident but instead with a third party. In this case then anyone who has received an injury from an electric shock they did not cause or were not responsible for has the right to make a compensation claim in Temple.

Causes of Electric Shocks

The majority of people have, at some point or another, felt a static shock. This sudden jolt can happen when friction from one thing to another causes a minute and short burst of electricity. In most cases, this shock is too light and doesn’t last long enough to cause any lasting damage.

However, in the case that the shock is caused by actual electricity (from an implement or socket) then the amount of electricity is likely to be much higher and the effect of the burst of energy lasts much longer.

There are many things within the home or workplace which can cause electric shock:

  • Faulty wiring where the “earth” connection is compromised
  • Overloaded sockets where too much is expected from too little
  • Electrical Equipment which is poorly maintained or allowed to become unsafe
  • Handling electrical equipment with wet hands
  • Water damage to sockets
  • Drilling or infiltrating electric cables

In many cases, the cause of an electric shock is an accident and nothing more. However, in some cases, it may be that the carelessness or negligence of another person was a direct factor in causing the electric shock. This could be a person who claims to have repaired an item but has failed to do so, an organisation who have allowed a dangerous situation to go unnoticed or unchanged or a person who has failed to properly risk assess or survey an area before allowing people inside to work or play.

In any situation where the action or lack of action of a person or organisation has led to an injury in another person then the injured party has the right to make a compensation claim in Temple.
