ohio Electrical Injury Lawyers
Everyone who works around electricity or heavy equipment that requires proper grounding knows the danger of electrical shock burns and electrocution. The state and federal governments enforce strict electrical codes and licensing requirements for electricians for a reason. Any mistake in wiring or grounding can send high voltage through everyone who comes in contact with the equipment. Every year, hundreds of workers across Ohio suffer electrical shocks or death by electrocution in workplace accidents. A serious shock can do permanent damage to the tissue, muscles and heart. If the current is strong enough, permanent brain injury can result, as well.
