Employees injured at work in an electrical shock are required to act quickly after an on-the-job injury.

Electrical shock occurs when a person’s body, either mistakenly or intentionally, becomes part of an electrical circuit, causing electricity to flow through the body. The effects of electrical shock vary greatly depending on the amount of current passing through the body, the duration of the shock, the path the current takes through the body, and the current’s frequency. Minor shocks cause just a faint tingling sensation, but more serious electrical shocks can cause cardiac arrest, spinal injury, paralysis, brain injury, electrical burns, and even death.

According to the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration, some of the most common causes of electrocution are unsafe electrical products and unsafe work environments.

When an unsafe product causes electrical shock or any other type of serious injury, consumers may be able to bring a Defective Product Claim against the product’s manufacturer or distributor. In Florida, courts require all consumer products to be reasonably safe for their intended use. If a product is not safe or results in injury when used in a predictable way, the product’s manufacturer and distributor will be held liable for injuries caused by the unsafe product.

When a worker is electrically shocked at his place of employment, his employer’s workers’ compensation insurance may cover medical bills and lost wages. Employees injured at work are required to act quickly after an on-the-job injury, and an experienced workman’s compensation attorney can help an injured employee to efficiently navigate the complicated and bureaucratic workers’ compensation system.
