We rely on electricity to light our homes, cook our food, and run our favorite electronics.
Before it reaches our outlets, electricity must navigate through wiring, power lines, and transformers – a system that carries thousands of volts, enough to burn, injure or kill. Many workers are exposed to electrical currents when performing their daily responsibilities, making them vulnerable to the danger of electrocution.
According to the National Safety Council, more than 400 people die each year from electrocutions and an additional 4,000 people are injured.
We are here to help bring justice and accountability when those accidents occur. If you or a love one have been harmed in an electrical accident, you deserve fair compensation and the highest caliber of legal representation.
