Has An Electrical Injury Impacted You Or Your Family?
Thousands of electrical injuries occur in Michigan every year. While most are relatively minor, many victims are not so fortunate and suffer lasting injuries or electrocution. The Michigan Occupational Safety and Health Administration (MIOSHA) reports that 63 electrocutions occurred during a recent 10-year span. Approximately 60 percent of these deaths involved someone working in the construction industry.
While construction work always brings the risk of serious injury, there are four main causes of electricity accidents in the industrial setting:
- Defective grounding methods
- Working in a wet location
- Contacting overhead power lines
- Failing to properly lock out equipment

Electrical burns may have a profound impact on the victim’s life. Electrical burns damage and disfigure tissue, causing scarring, disfigurement and nerve damage. Electrical currents may also do irreparable neurological damage or even cause the victim’s heart to stop. It’s important for an electrical accident victim to uncover the full extent of his or her injuries, because in Michigan, injured people generally only have one chance to sue the at-fault parties and recover damages.
