Fort Worth Electrical Injuries and Electrocution Lawyers
Electricity has become such a widely used and depended upon commodity that many people forget just how dangerous it can be. However, electricity can cause devastating accidents, from direct electrical burns to fires and even explosions. In the most serious accidents, these incidents can result in electrocution and death. Sadly, negligence is one of the most common factors in electrical accidents, and one person’s thoughtless actions regarding electricity or an electric device can cause many others to suffer electrical burns and other serious injuries.
In order to protect people from electrical injuries, property owners and managers are responsible for addressing improperly shielded wiring, exposed electrical terminals, and various other hazards that can harm bystanders, tenants, and visitors. Additionally, those involved in designing and manufacturing electrical devices should work carefully to ensure that they are safe for use. If anyone fails to uphold a reasonable duty of care in protecting others from electrical injuries, they can be held responsible for any consequences that result.

A person can typically feel an electrical current of as little as 1 milliamperes, and dangerous shocks can occur at currents as low as 30 mA, or the current provided by a 110 volt domestic power supply.
