Have you or a loved one been injured in an electrocution accident? We’ll get you the compensation you deserve.
Hundreds of people die each year from electrocution accidents. Thousands more are injured annually by non-fatal electrocutions. Any source of electricity can be a potential source of electrocution. It can occur on the job or in your home. For example, if you work in the construction industry, there may be danger of electrocution if your employer has not taken the appropriate safety measures or provided the appropriate safety equipment. Electrocution may occur in your home as a result of a defective product. The product may have a defect in manufacture or a defect in design.
If you or a loved one has suffered injury or even death by electrocution as a result of the negligence of an employer or a product manufacturer or designer and you would like to consult with an attorney, please contact our Atlanta personal injury attorneys at the Bennett Law Group today for a free consultation.

We have obtained significant results for many clients in handling electrocution cases and other personal injury cases. Here are some testimonials from prior satisfied clients that we have helped.
As stated, many electrocution accidents happen at work, and are common in the construction field. Certain employers, in order to save both money and time, may not abide by all safety regulations and therefore allow their employees to work in unsafe conditions or to perform their job duties without the proper safety equipment or safety training.
Some common causes of electrocutions on the job are:
- Wiring which has been improperly installed
- Lack of proper training by employer
- Failure of the employer to comply with OSHA guidelines
- Lack of, or substandard, protective equipment
Electrocutions can also occur in the home as a result of defective products. Some examples of this are defects in:
- Blow dryers or curling irons
- Power tools
- Any other household appliance which is electrical
Some of the injuries suffered as a result of a non-fatal electrocution include chronic pain, burns, possible heart failure, damage to internal organs such as the lungs, brain damage, and seizures or muscle spasms. In severe cases, injuries resulting from an electrical shock can cause permanent disfigurement.
An individual may be injured so severely that they are no longer able to work after being the victim of an electrocution. Others may be able to work in a limited capacity, but no longer have the full range of motion and physical ability that they enjoyed before the accident.
