Most electrocution injury cases occur on the job, and many of these accidents happen because of faulty equipment or unsafe work procedures. If you lost a loved one in a fatal accident at work, you may have legal options.
At The Law Firm of Ted B. Lyon & Associates, our lawyers have decades of experience handling cases of wrongful death. We represent families of fatal accident victims throughout the Texas area. Our lawyers also represent workers who suffer injuries such as severe burns from electric shock.
Beyond Workers’ Compensation
When a person is injured in an accident at work, he or she can seek benefits from workers’ compensation. Family members of those killed can seek death benefits from workers’ compensation. However, these benefits are limited and may do little to protect your family from financial hardship.
If your electric shock injury or your loved one’s electrocution was caused by the negligence of another party, you may have the right to file a lawsuit. While employers are generally protected from being sued by employees or their family members for work-related accidents, there are exceptions in cases of extreme negligence. Equipment manufacturers, vendors, contractors or others may also be liable.
Our lawyers will conduct an immediate investigation of the accident and hold all negligent parties accountable to the full extent of the law. We have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
