Poor maintenance, faulty wiring and improper safety procedure can lead to electrical injuries or electrocution. If you or a loved one has been injured by electricity, an attorney can help you develop your claim and seek the compensation you deserve for your injuries.
The personal injury attorneys at Bonifield & Rosenstengel have extensive experience representing clients who are injured in all types of accidents, including electrical accidents. For more than 35 years, our lawyers have helped clients in the St. Louis metro area and through central and southern Illinois. We will aggressively pursue compensation for your injuries through a personal injury suit or workers’ comp claim.
Our attorneys represent clients who have suffered all types of electrical injuries, including:
If you have lost a close relative in a fatal accident or electrocution, we can help you bring a wrongful death claim against the responsible parties. While no amount of money can possibly make up for your loss, we will work to get you compensation to cover expenses so you can recover and heal.
If you work in construction or a similar field, you may be exposed to energized, uninsulated wires or high-voltage equipment. Our attorneys can help you with your workers’ compensation claim if you were injured on the job.
If someone other than your employer or co-worker caused your injuries, such as an outside vendor or contractor, you may be able to bring a third-party claim against that person or company for your injuries. In these cases, we will fight to secure damages for pain and suffering, on top of your workers’ comp benefits.
Utility companies have their own standards they must follow. When they don’t follow these standards and neglect to make electrical wiring safe during construction, people can get hurt. If you were injured in this situation, you may have a claim against the utility company as well as the property owner.
Electrocutions can also occur in the home when there are downed power lines. The utility company should have certain safeguards in place, such as insulated wiring or de-energizing power lines, to protect property owners.
