Exposure To Electricity Can Result In Painful Burn Injuries
The most common injury related to electrical shock is a burn. Burns sustain from electric shock are different from chemical or thermal burns. They tend to have deeper surface penetration and other complications. Electrical burns often cause an indirect or secondary injury through involuntary movement resulting in broken bones and bruises. Sometimes the electrical shock causes collisions or falls that result in substantial injuries and delayed or immediate death.
Burn injuries of all types involve long-term physical and psychological effects, so it is crucial to consider medical costs, lost wages and compensation for pain and suffering — which can be considerable. Burn injuries are extremely painful, so burn victims ought to be compensated for the extensive suffering.
