Common Causes of Electrocution Accidents

Electrocution accidents can happen in a blink of an eye and cause serious injuries. Many people who get electrocuted must go to the hospital immediately. Here are some common causes of electrocution accidents.

Extension Cords

Both homes and businesses have multiple extension cords. Unfortunately, they are also the cause of many electrical shocks, especially among children and pets. For example, if your pet chews on an extension cord in your home, it could suffer an electrical shock. If you notice that any of your extension cords are worn out, you should throw them out and replace them immediately.

Electrical Appliances

Electrical appliances, like hair dryers and toasters, certainly make our lives easier. However, if they are defective or used improperly, they can cause an electrocution accident. To avoid getting injured, never use electrical appliances near water. If you notice that the wires are worn or cracked, it’s time to replace the appliance.

High-Voltage Power Lines

High-voltage power lines are a hazard to people on ladders and other lift devices. If you have to use a ladder to go on your roof or trim a tree, you should never place it by a power line.

Swimming Pools

Having a swimming pool in your yard can provide hours of fun in the summer. However, as Tulsa electrocution accident attorneys can confirm, they are also a source of electrocution accidents. For instance, a swimming pool with faulty wiring can result in electrocution. People also risk getting electrocuted if they swim when it’s lightning outside.

Damages for Electrocution Accidents

If you were electrocuted due to someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation for your damages. Here are the available damages for electrocution accidents. 

Medical Expenses
