Electrocution-Related Accidents

Commo Electrical Hazards

Newly released data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that electrocution-related accidents take a high toll on U.S. Workers.

Local government employees who work on power lines averaged 78 days away from work per 10,000 full-time workers in 2014; this is almost double the next-highest total (40 days for construction laborers).

Every year, hundreds of Americans are killed and thousands injured due to electrical hazards. Among work-place causes of death, electrocution ranks sixth. For survivors and loved ones affected by electrocution-related accidents, life will never be the same.

To help increase safety and raise awareness about electrocution-related accidents, a new personal injury website has been launched.

To provide critical information for victims and their families, including:

  • A resource center;
  • Frequently asked questions;
  • Legal rights;
  • Statistics
