Electrical accidents are common on construction sites. Many electrically-powered hand tools may short out and shock the user. Unfinished buildings may have exposed wiring and wiring at different stages of completion. Ladders may come in contact with electrical current. The injuries are often fatal and usually catastrophic. It may be possible to recover compensation for injuries or deaths resulting from electrical accidents, but only an experienced and knowledgeable construction accident injury lawyer can advise you.
Building Strong Cases Based on Experience and Knowledge
At the law firm of Antin, Ehrlich & Epstein, LLP, Attorneys at Law, each of our principal lawyers has more than 25 years of experience. We build on that experience to advise clients about their options and develop strong cases that seek maximum compensation after an electrical accident. Committed to providing clients with exceptional personal service and high-quality legal advocacy, our attorneys keep clients fully informed throughout the progress of their cases and are available to answer their questions.
Types of Cases After an Electrical Injury
We represent construction workers and persons who are injured while visiting or passing by construction sites. We explain the legal avenues available to them, including:
- Filing a claim under New York Labor Law 240(1) when the injured worker was shocked and fell from a ladder, hoist or lift
- Filing a third-party personal injury claim against a liable subcontractor, maintenance provider, electrical inspector or other entity that is not your employer
- Filing a personal injury lawsuit if you were passing by a construction site and were injured by electrical wires or explosions at the site
Our attorneys have the knowledge, experience and resources to investigate thoroughly. We consult with electricians, safety engineers, medical providers, and other experts and specialists who can help us determine liability and document the effect of the injury on our clients. In cases where a client’s loved one died in a construction electrocution accident, we file a wrongful death lawsuit seeking a remedy that covers lost income, lost companionship, and other losses and expenses.
