Electrocution Accidents in Virginia

Call (571) 290-2390 If You Were Electrocuted on a Construction Site

On almost every construction site, there are many electronically powered tools used by multiple employees. Whether a person is working on a crane, using power tools, or installing wiring in a building, electrocutions can happen at any given moment if employees are not safe and employers do not enforce safe work habits.

According to the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) of the United States Department of Labor, electrocutions are amongst the top four most common types of construction accidents,.

Common Causes of Electrocutions at Construction Sites

  • Ungrounded wires
  • Defective equipment
  • Inadequate tools
  • Improperly marked construction areas
  • Poor lighting in construction zones

Different Types of Electrical Injuries

Electrocutions can cause a wide range of injuries, depending on the strength of the tool or machine that caused the injury. OSHA reports there are four types of electrical injuries caused by electrocutions, which are listed below:

  • Burns (may result in severe blistering)
  • Electric shock
  • Falls caused by the shock
  • Fatal electrocution
