Electrical injuries and electrocutions are more common than you would think. In fact, according the Department of Labor, electrocution was one of the top four causes of death at construction sites across the United States in 2012.
The frequency of electrical accidents, however, does nothing to diminish the pain of an electrical burn or loss of a loved one. At The Jasmer Law Firm, we can explain your options after an electrical injury or electrocution. For more than 17 years, attorney David Jasmer has helped injured individuals in the Chicago area. He can provide you with the advice and support you need after your construction accident.
Common Causes of Electrical Accidents at Construction Sites
Some common causes of electrical injuries on construction sites include:
- Exposed, underground electrical cables
- Defective equipment such as power tools or heavy machinery
- Exposed wires
- Negligently installed electrical wires or components
- Negligently designed electrical systems
Regardless of the cause of your accident, we understand the impact an electrical accident can have on you and your loved ones. You could be left with significant electrical burns and scarring. A significant electrical charge can damage your heart and your veins. With higher voltage, an electrical accident can lead to a wrongful death.

We are dedicated to pursuing full and fair compensation to help you cover the costs of your injury or loss, including lost wages, medical expenses, damages for pain and suffering, and other damages.
