An electrical injury is a potentially fatal type of physical trauma that an individual can experience as a result of exposure to an electrical current which can be at a high or low voltage. In extreme situations, the sheer force of a larger current can make it impossible for the victim to let go of the object that is electrocuting them.
In fact, the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) has listed electrocution as one of the top 4 causes of worker fatalities in private industry, with up to 9% of all workplace injuries being attributed to an electrical shock.
At the Phillips Law Firm, we understand the trauma that injury victims and their families often endure after a serious electrical shock injury and can help fight for the justice that they deserve.

Common Causes of Electrical Injuries
While many occupations and public areas often have adequate signage that warns individuals of potentially dangerous areas, there are still many different ways that a person can receive a serious electrical injury.
A list of these includes:
- Using unsafe or defective tools
- Operating equipment with wet power cords and outlets
- Exposure in an auto accident
- Overloading an electrical circuit
- Failing to confirm that the power has been switched off before making a repair
- Using a 3 wired cord with a 2 wire plug
- Exposed metal parts contacting other energized materials
- Failure to drain energy from capacitors
- Keeping flammable materials near electrical boxes or outlets
As with any serious injury, by seeking the immediate help of a licensed medical practitioner can help to ensure that any potential complications can be addressed quickly by qualified staff.

- Construction worker
