What Causes Electrocution Injuries?
Electrocution injuries can happen to anyone who comes in contact with an electricity source, either at home or at work. Even a seemingly small hazard like picking up a broken lightbulb is often enough to cause electrocution. Electric shocks can also happen at work and are particularly common in the construction industry. Construction workers may be electrocuted when encountering power lines, or if electrical lines they work on are not up to safety requirement standards. Electrocution injuries can cause devastating injuries, including cardiac arrest, severe burns, and internal organ damage.The most common causes of electrical injuries are:
Contact with exposed wiring
Contact with power lines
Accidents involving small children, such as biting electrical cords or sticking objects in outlets
