Obtaining Legal Representation in New York Electrocution Cases
Electrical power is a vital component of most construction sites. Electricity powers tools and lights at a job site, and it generates the power necessary to complete a job. Electrical power can also seriously injure or kill people on the job. Injuries stemming from electric shock are almost always serious and sometimes deadly.
Electrical injuries can include severe external or internal burns or brain injuries. When electrical current runs through a person’s chest, it can lead to heart arrhythmia or even cardiac arrest and death.
If you or a loved one was injured in an electrical accident on a construction site or other location, or if you have lost a loved one to electrocution, you are going through a painful, difficult time. A New York City electrocution lawyer can work with you during this critical time to help you recover the financial compensation you need.
Causes of Electrical Injuries
Injured people and surviving family members have turned to the law firm of Rosenberg, Minc, Falkoff & Wolff LLP. Our team of New York City electrical accident attorneys works hard for people whose lives have been turned upside down by these types of series injuries.
Electrocution can be caused by any number of things such as:
- Contact with exposed wiring or power lines. A number of these cases involve contacting wires with metal ladders.
- Electrical arc flash from power lines
- Electrical wires that are improperly insulated
- Contractors and/or workers who are not informed of the location of power lines
Determining Who Is At Fault

If someone other than your employer was responsible, you can bring a personal injury claim in addition to workers’ compensation. Our law firm will closely examine the facts of your case in order to find out who was at fault. If you have a claim in addition to workers’ compensation, our attorneys will fight hard in litigation and negotiations to help you get the money you need.
