Electrocuted? Your Employer May Be At Fault.
Electrocution is a common injury that many railroad workers face. In some cases, these types of railroad accidents can even lead to death. While railroad jobs are not known for being easy, there are other factors that can increase the danger for those in this particular occupation. Things such as poor maintenance and low safety standards can add to the risk of electrocution and other injuries or illnesses.
If you or someone you know has sustained a serious injury or died as a result of an electrocution incident, you may have a right to substantial compensation. At Hildebrand McLeod & Nelson LLP, we are attorneys who are passionate about protecting the legal interests of railroad workers. Let us go above and beyond to help you recover damages today.
Their Negligence Puts You In Danger; You Deserve Compensation
The negligence of your employer or an unpredictable event can leave you with lasting physical and emotional scars.
Typical injuries from an electrocution accident may include:
- Severe burns to your skin
- Cardiac arrest or abnormal heart palpitations
- Organ, muscle, bone and nerve damage
- Injuries caused from a fall post an electrocution
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Death by electrocution
Treatment for these electrocution injuries can be costly and require time away from work. You may also lose the ability to provide for yourself and your family entirely. For these reasons and more, you deserve to be fairly compensated.
