How Do Electrocution Injuries Occur?
People are most likely to be electrocuted in one of two places: at home or at work.
In a person’s home, there are various possible sources for electrocution risks, often due to defective products. Data shows that small appliances, large appliances, and power tools account for a large percentage of electrocution injuries each year.
At work, electrocutions are a leading cause of workplace injuries and deaths, particularly for those who work in construction, according to data from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). We know that there are approximately 30,000 non-fatal shock incidents that occur in the workplace each year.
Some of the most common injuries that occur due to electrocution include:
- Damage to skin, tissue, and muscle
- Nerve damage
- Heart damage or cardiac arrest
- Loss of limbs
Electrocution injury victims can also suffer from severe emotional and traumatic injuries, as well as cognitive disabilities, due to the incident. This can include:
