Working with Electricity
Just as electricity is probably one of man’s greatest discoveries it is also one of man’s greatest enemies; no more so than when it comes to accidents. None of us would like to think that we can succumb to an accident because of electricity but sadly there are no guarantees and accidents do happen. Indeed during the course of a year many thousands of people can suffer accidents because of poorly maintained electrics or because they have been poorly trained in how to deal with electricity in certain circumstances.
This can also apply to individuals responsible for the first aid of others where electrical accidents are involved. At Accident Advice Helpline together with our no win no fee* Matlock solicitors we have helped a great number of people who have sustained injuries because of electricity. But what kind of injuries can electricity cause?
- Loss of vision
- Nerve damage
- Heart attack
- Neuropathy (damage to the brain)
At Accident Advice Helpline we and our no win no fee* Matlock solicitors are on hand to help deal with issues resulting from such injuries.
Electrocution doesn’t always involve water regardless of what you may have heard. Water can play its part if electricity and water meet when they aren’t supposed to but in a lot of instances electrocution can take place if an individual touches bare wires, metal panels that have not been earthed or electricity through another conductive surface.
This may be the result of unfinished building work or work finished to a poor standard or because of poor training when it comes to working with electricity on a daily basis. Whatever the cause though, Accident Advice Helpline and our no win no fee* in Matlock solicitors can help you achieve the right level of compensation if you have been the victim of electrocution through no fault of your own.
