Electrocution Accidents Lawyers

Electricity is such a part of our world that most of us take it for granted. We also forget how dangerous it can be until it’s too late. When an accident involving electricity occurs, it can be serious and even fatal, leading to significant issues that can be hard to recover from.

This applies not only to your physical health but to your financial stability as well, and when you’re injured in an electrocution accident you may end up with more bills and financial burdens than you can handle. But if the accident wasn’t your fault, you have an option – seek restitution with the help of a personal injury lawyer.

Electrocution And Its Repercussions

No matter the cause of an electrocution accident, it can be serious and lead to burns, brain damage, and even death. The wounds can take a long time to recover from and in the case of a death, those left behind may struggle to pick up the pieces and move on after the event.

Your finances are also at risk. Being injured in an electrocution accident can mean that you struggle financially due to things like:

  • Hospital bills
  • Lost wages due to missing work
  • Future potential lost earnings if your injury means you can’t perform your job anymore
  • And more

And in the case of a death, if the departed was a breadwinner, the family left behind may end up without a major source of income – and still have mounting debt to pay that includes the funeral costs of their loved one. None of this is fair, and getting justice is important. A personal injury lawyer can help.

Common Causes Of Electrocution

There are many causes of electrocution, and it is sadly an issue that can come out of virtually anywhere. Some of the most common causes include:

  • Exposed wires
  • Faulty wiring
  • Standing water near electrical sources
  • Poorly maintained equipment or property
  • Working on a project without turning off the electrical breaker

While it’s very easy to overlook something and electrocute yourself, what happens when you had no way of preventing the issue because it was caused by the carelessness or recklessness of someone else? When that occurs, you have the right to seek compensation.

Do You Have A Case? 


In order to file your personal injury lawsuit, you’ll have to be able to show that your injuries were caused as a direct result of someone else’s negligent or reckless behavior. This can mean a lot of different things. Some of the common examples of negligence or recklessness in a case like this include:

  • A property owner knows about a faulty outlet but does nothing about it
  • Someone fails to maintain the equipment in their workspace, leading to an accident
  • Bare wires or extension cords are left in or near puddles
  • Someone fails to properly inspect equipment or property as required

The key here is to understand that the responsible party must have been aware of the issue. For example, a property owner who was completely unaware of a safety issue can’t be held liable – it’s only if they knew about the risk and failed to correct it or failed to take steps to warn others about it.

Proving Fault

Proving fault in electrocution accident cases isn’t easy since you have to show that the responsible party really did know about the safety risk and did nothing about it. But how do you do this? The best option is to trust in a personal injury attorney.

They can use a variety of different resources to prove fault including:

  • Security camera footage
  • Witness statements
  • Accident reports
  • Medical documents
  • Past history of events at the property
  • Property inspections
  • And more

Getting What You’re Owed 


Another major issue is that insurance companies and representatives from the other side don’t always have your best interests at heart. Often, they will do all they can to keep from giving you a dollar. They may deny payment outright or offer you a settlement that is far less than you are really owed. In any situation, you need respect.

Your attorney gets you that respect and stands up to the other side. Our team has a reputation in Florida and in the field, and once you have us on your side you’ll instantly get the respect of the other side. They’ll be much more likely to negotiate and get you what you’re owed, and we’ll make sure that you get it.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
