Texas Electrocution Injury Lawyer

Representing Workers Suffering From Electrical Injury

The number of work-related electrocution victims continues to rise. Frequently, employer negligence is the cause when a worker is killed or seriously injured after contacting power lines and exposed electrical sources. Most on-the-job injuries in Texas are covered by the workers’ compensation laws of Texas.

And while workers’ compensation provides some compensation for an injured worker’s monetary losses and provides benefits to dependents in electrocution cases, the benefits are often insufficient. When our Houston, Texas, electrical injury attorneys handle a work-related electrocution, we start our investigation by determining whether a third party can additionally be held responsible for the death.

Helping Workers Deal With the Effects of Electrical Injury

Contact with overhead power lines accounts for approximately two-fifths of electrocutions. Electric companies know how dangerous power lines are, yet individuals are electrocuted with alarming frequency. Electric companies have a general duty to the public to:

  • Properly install and maintain their wires
  • Fix sags in power lines
  • Keep power lines from running too close to a house
  • Fix power lines that have been knocked down in a storm

When a power company fails to exercise reasonable care in protecting the public in these situations, it can be held responsible.

From our Houston, Texas, office, we have handled electrocution cases involving:

  • Failure to provide electrical warnings
  • Failure to kill electricity
  • Inadequate training
  • Noninsulated wiring
  • Power line cases
  • Substandard wiring

Helping Consumers Deal With the Effects of Electrical Injury

Defective products cause an alarming number of electrical injuries. If you suffered an electrical injury while using a household appliance, power tool or any other product that runs on electricity, you may have the right to file a claim against the designer, manufacturer and distributor of the product to recover your medical expenses, lost earnings, loss of enjoyment and pain and suffering.

If you or a loved one has suffered an electrical injury, your personal injury attorney needs the knowledge, resources and experience to look at the circumstances from every angle. To learn what the experienced electrical injury attorneys at Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner can do for you, call (713) 222-7211 (toll free 713-222-7211) or contact us online.
