Burleson Electrocution Accident Lawyer
Aiding in the Recovery of Our Clients in Johnson County
An electrocution accident can cause severe and permanent injuries in a heartbeat. Victims of electrocution are often completely unprepared and unknowing that they are in mortal danger. It is also true that the person electrocuted is often not the one responsible for the accident. If you have been electrocuted in Burleson, Johnson County or Greater Fort Worth, possibly while working on a construction site or within another industrial field, you need to consider how you will be compensated for your injuries.
With help from an experienced Burleson electrocution lawyer, you can fight for the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled. Coontz Cochran can tackle injury claims of all sorts, no matter how complex the case may seem.
Consequences of Electrocution Accidents
Compared to how quickly an electrocution accident can begin and end, the damage caused is astounding. People who have been electrocuted can suffer a wide variety of injuries, or have preexisting conditions dramatically worsened. Since electricity courses through the victim’s body, a comprehensive exam of all body parts is necessary to check for harm.
Electrocution May Result in the Following Injuries:
- Third-degree burns
- Soft tissue destruction
- Brain damage
- Internal organ failure
- Weakened heart
Electrocution from a strong power source is likely to cause immediate death. In such incidents, the surviving family members of the victim may be able to file a wrongful death claim.
Compensation Must Account for the Future
Upfront settlement amounts offered by insurance companies working with the liable party will most likely be far too small. In order to get the right amount of compensation, you must first know your maximum medical improvement (MMI) and when you are likely to reach it. As you move towards your MMI, your medical bills will continue to increase, and you may need years of rehabilitation afterwards. Our Burleson personal injury attorneys can help you calculate your total cost of recovery and advocate for that amount—not a penny less.
If you were electrocuted by a faulty power system, exposed wire, a defective product, or any other instance of someone else's negligence, begin exploring your legal options by calling a Burleson electrocution accident lawyer at (888) 858-0536 now.
