Electrical Injury Claims
Regardless of your profession, it’s almost certain that you will be exposed to some form of electrical appliance throughout your working day. Whether it’s the case of working with electrical wiring or simply boiling a kettle in the office canteen, the risks of faulty wiring and electrical shocks are all-too real, and can be all-too severe. Electrical shock can prove fatal, so ensuring that a workplace is safe for employees is a responsibility that employers can’t ignore.
At Injury Lawyers UK, we know how important it is to be able to return to work after suffering an injury related to an electrical accident. However, we also know that it takes time to recover and you may well wish to leave your employer to work elsewhere. In the meantime, the electrical accident suffered may result in a loss of income for you and your family. That’s why we work with those unfortunate enough to have suffered in the workplace in seeking the compensation they deserve.
Electrical accidents in the workplace
Among the most common electrical accidents witnessed in the workplace, those with daily exposure to faulty wiring are, as you might expect, at most risk. Electrical companies, building sites, and industrial environments are all workplaces where potential accidents might occur. As such, such accidents as the following are all potential risks:
- Failure to turn off electricity during maintenance work
- Exposure to faulty wiring
- Improperly grounded appliances
- Faulty equipment
- Unsatisfactory Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
