For the majority of the UK, living without electricity would be unthinkable. We rely on it for almost everything, and when we suffer a power cut it can be difficult to carry on as usual. Even our internet connection can be wiped out thanks to having no power. But working with electricity is not something that should be taken lightly, and electrical accidents can be highly dangerous. A no win no fee in Hensol service might be the best way to claim compensation for an electrical injury – and Accident Advice Helpline is the best no win no fee law firm to contact.
No win no fee in Hensol for electrical injury claims
Suffering an electric shock due to negligence in the workplace, or elsewhere, can be extremely serious – in some circumstances it can even be fatal. It is caused when an electric current passes through the body. How bad the injuries resulting from the shock are depends on how high the voltage is, the amount of current, and the type of current. It also depends on how long the person is in contact with the electricity. The consequences can be minor but, in some circumstances, they can cause long-term damage or even be life threatening. Those with thin skin, or who are wet, will suffer more than those with thicker skin, or those who are dry. Each situation is different, and depends on the individual circumstances.
The human body can be damaged very badly by electric shocks, especially the nervous system including the brain, nerves and spinal cord. This brain damage can be permanent and can change a person’s life forever.
But electric shocks can also damage the heart and respiratory system; in fact, these are the most common injuries after an electric shock. The heart can stop completely, or its rhythm can be altered dangerously. Blood clots can develop also, and this can lead to the need to amputate a limb. Other injuries that are often sustained after an electric shock include cataracts, burns, broken bones and kidney failure.
