Protect Your Important Legal Rights with a Skilled, Experienced Electrocution Lawyer
Every year, people from all walks of life are killed by electrocution. In many instances, these deaths by electrocution occur because of the negligence of some other party.
The two most common areas in which electrocutions occur in the United States are those involving consumer appliances and construction-related accidents. Every year, about 30,000 people in the United States experience nonfatal “shock” accidents, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Typically, these incidents involve a defective home appliance. In some cases, the injuries sustained in this type of situation can be serious.
In addition to shock accidents, men, women, and children are killed by electrocution in the home annually. A considerable number of these electrocutions arise from defective home appliances.
Electrocution is considered to be part of the “fatal four” in the construction industry. Death by electrocution is one of the four most common causes of death in the construction industry in the United States, according to the United States Department of Labor.

Electrocution Wrongful Death Case
Across the country, individual states have laws that permit you to bring what is called a wrongful death lawsuit. A wrongful death lawsuit is brought by a person whose family member has died because of the negligence of someone else. For example, if a defective appliance caused the electrocution of one of your family members, you might be able to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit.
The laws regarding wrongful death lawsuits vary from state-to-state. The Doan Law Firm has offices across the country. Therefore, if you have questions about wrongful death cases, you can telephone our electrocution lawyer hotline at (800) 349-0000 any time.
The laws in a particular state set forth which family members can of a deceased person can pursue a wrongful death claim. Examples of family members that can pursue this type of legal action include:
Compensation awarded in an electrocution wrongful death case depends on the facts and circumstances of that case. In addition, an individual state’s laws also govern what type of compensation can be soughed in a wrongful death case.
However, an electrocution attorney from our firm is likely to seek compensation that includes:
final medical bills
funeral and burial expenses
mental anguish and emotional distress
Finally, each state has a law on the books called the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations sets forth the timeframe in which a wrongful death lawsuit must be filed in court. If you fail to meet this deadline, you are likely forever precluded from pursuing a lawsuit for the losses you sustained because of the electrocution of a family member.
