Electrocution can refer to incurred death to the human body by electrical shock. Technically, although, it can result in cases of fatality, an individual can still survive electrocution in many circumstances.

Depending on the critical nature of the electrical shock, and how immediate medical attention is received, the individual may be likely to recover.

You can discuss any questions pertaining to your legal options with an electrocution accident attorney immediately for a review of your particular circumstance. Personal injury attorneys commit to your success and the pursuit of full financial compensation.

An Electrocution Accident Occurrence

When the human body is exposed to a current of electricity, the electrical current may find a pathway to the human body, normally entering at a source, and discovering an exit to a surface that is grounded, or another electrical pathway.

Dependent on the voltage, the extent of damage of an electrical current, can also result in the duration of time the current passes through the human body, and the selection of the pathway.

The tissue may have burns, as well, as it exits and enters the human body, and there is also a likelihood of internal burning.

The following are other systems which may be affected:

In the cardiovascular system, a lack of heartbeat or flat line, and useless fluttering of heart, or ventricular fibrillation, are both typical reasons for fatality with electrocution.

The shock can be fatal, if the heart is, in a timely fashion, not revived.


In the central nervous system, when electricity passes through the human body, it can result in damage to the nervous system and brain. It can have an effect on a variety of functions, if the current goes through the brain, which include a result of respiratory failure.

Spinal cord injuries can ensue as well, either from the electrical current, or from the individual being thrown or falling from the electrical current.

There can be vast amounts of harm to the organs and muscles from electrical shock, and from sustained injuries by being thrown or falling.

Electrocution accidents, generally, occur when an individual becomes exposed to a source of high voltage. It may be a powerline, or an individual working with equipment of high power.

Construction employees doing excavation or working in trenches may be at-risk for electrical shock if power lines are not marked properly.

An injury involving electrical shock may result in permanent and immediate injury to the victim. In addition to healthcare expenses, pertaining to the injury, the victim may not be able to return to the workplace.
