    Getting help from a lawyer who works for no-win, no-fee on Pwllheli cases involving Pwllheli cases – FAQs

    What exactly is an electric shock?

    An electric shock occurs when a voltage of 50 volts or above is applied between two parts of the human body. An electric current is transmitted through all of the tissues of the body and causes damage as it does so. We have probably all suffered a mild form of electric shock caused by static electricity perhaps when we walked on a synthetic fibre carpet. This static electrical shock can be as high as 10,000 volts but it acts for such a short period of time that it does not cause any injury. Although it should be remembered that static electricity can cause fire and explosions and these are certainly harmful to humans!

    They would deal with very serious injuries such as:

    • The heart stopping beating – some electric shocks are fatal because the heart cannot be started again
    • Stopping breathing
    • Muscle spasms

    Can electricity cause other injuries?

    Yes, other electrical injuries include:

    • Electrical burns – the electricity heats the tissue as it passes through the body and it can get burnt very deep down in the body. Some cases require surgery and damage can be permanent.
    • Loss of muscle control – extreme muscle spasms can occur during electric shock that can even break bones and dislocate joints. The muscle spasm often leaves the victim unable to move and so they can’t get away from the source of electricity – this makes the shock go on for longer. If they are up a ladder at the time this can be extremely serious.
    • Thermal burns – electrical equipment generates heat and overloaded or shorted electrical equipment can get very hot indeed. This can be hot enough to cause burns and even explosions. If there are explosive vapours in the area a large explosion may occur.
