Long Beach Personal Injury Attorney Protecting the Rights of the Injured
Some of the most severe injuries come from accidents involving electricity. Each year, electrical burns account for almost 6.5% of all admissions to burn units, and approximately 1000 deaths.
The survival rate among burn injury victims is high; however, many survivors of this type of personal injury will require long-term rehabilitation and medical care. In addition, permanent disfigurement, loss of physical ability, and even brain damage can be lifelong results of burn injuries.
Electrical accidents can occur at work or at home, and many are caused by the negligence of others. If you or a loved one suffered a severe electrical injury or death as a result of possible negligence, you should contact a Los Angeles electrical injury attorney.
