Compensation for On-the-Job Injuries in West Virginia

Electrocution is one of the leading causes of workplace-related injuries and deaths, especially in the construction industry. However, this fact doesn’t mean you deserve to be electrocuted when you’re on the job—all employers are expected to provide safe working conditions for their employees. If you’re suffering from an electrocution injury, Warner Law Offices, PLLC can help.

The bulk of electrocutions are work-related injuries, followed by private consumers usually in their own homes because of unsafe home maintenance or a defective or dangerous product. One of our experienced electrocution injury attorneys in West Virginia can help you or a loved one receive compensation quickly and determine whether you can benefit from a personal injury claim.

Types of Electrocution Injury Cases We Handle

If you’ve suffered an electrocution at work, you are not alone. In 2022, 105 workers across the country died due to electrocutions on the job. In West Virginia, electrocutions are particularly common in the mining industry due to its inherent dangers. For example, in 2019, a worker was fatally electrocuted at a mine preparation facility in Kanawha County. 

At Warner Law Offices, we understand the devastating impact these accidents can have and are here to help you pursue the compensation you deserve. Our experienced electrocution injury lawyers handle a wide range of electrocution cases, including those involving:

  • Contact with power lines
  • Exposure to faulty wiring or equipment 
  • Defective electrical products
  • Improper grounding or safety procedures
  • Arc flash or blast incidents

These accidents can occur in various industries but are particularly common in construction, mining, manufacturing, and utility work. Regardless of where your injury occurred, if it was caused by someone else’s carelessness, you have the right to seek legal compensation.

Electrocution injuries can range from minor burns to severe nerve damage, cardiac arrest, and even death. By filing a personal injury claim, you can seek compensation for your medical expenses, lost wages, pain, suffering, and other damages related to your accident. Common types of injuries we see include:

  • Electrical burns
  • Thermal burns
  • Muscle and tissue damage
  • Heart failure
  • Neurological damage
  • Scarring and disfigurement

Who Can Be Held Liable for Your Electrocution Injury?

Employers are legally obligated to provide a safe work environment and protect their employees from known hazards, including electrical dangers. When employers fail to satisfy this obligation, they may be held liable for resulting injuries. Potentially liable parties in an electrocution accident case include:

  • Employers who fail to provide proper safety training or equipment
  • Manufacturers of defective electrical products
  • Property owners who fail to maintain safe premises
  • Contractors or subcontractors who perform negligent electrical work
In one notable case, the U.S. Department of Labor found numerous violations at a West Virginia lumber and mulch plant that violated the employer’s obligation to provide a safe work environment. Violations included: 
  • Exposing employees to electrical hazards, inadequate machine guards, and lack of conveyor/exhaust systems to remove combustible sawdust and shavings.
  • Using electrical equipment in ways not permitted by manufacturer guidelines. 
  • Not implementing an effective hazard communication training plan.
  • Not implementing lockout/tagout procedures to prevent accidental machine startup or movement.
  • Allowing combustible materials to build up. 

Employers should not go unpunished when they put the lives of their workers at risk. Our skilled Charleston, WV, electrical burns lawyers are ready to investigate your case and hold the at-fault party accountable. 

Can I Take Legal Action If My Loved One Was Killed in an Electrocution Accident?

Electrocution accidents are often fatal. If you have lost a loved one due to electrocution, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit to seek compensation for medical expenses, funeral costs, lost income, loss of companionship, and more. Our West Virginia electrical burns lawyers are standing by to help surviving loved ones navigate the legal aftermath of a fatal electrocution.
