Work-Related Electrical Injury or Death

If your family member was seriously injured or killed by electrical shock, there may be both a workers’ compensation claim and additional claims against a third party for negligence.

The Injury Law Firm of Louis P. Lombardi II Law, LLC are familiar with the terrible suffering of victims of electric shock accidents. We have secured settlements in shock injury cases and electrocution deaths across the Montgomery, Delaware, Chester, and Bucks County areas. For compassionate care and aggressive pursuit of the compensation you are entitled to, call us for a free consultation.

Electrocution and Electrical Shock Claims

Our experienced workers’ compensation and personal injury lawyers have represented many utility employees, construction workers, factory workers, maintenance personnel and others who came into contact with live electrical currents in the workplace.

We work with clients and their doctors and family members to document the physical injuries, extent of permanent damage and the person’s limitations after the electrocution:

  • Severe burns
  • Damage to the heart or internal organs
  • Nerve damage (paralysis, chronic pain, lost function or sensation)
  • Cognitive problems (memory loss, inability to concentrate)
  • Injuries from falling after being shocked
  • Brain damage from heart stoppage

Just as electrical surges can zap the circuitry of appliances, a jolt of electricity can fry the nerve paths in the human body. The effects can be subtle, and must be verified by a neurologist, neuropsychologist or other specialist. Our job is to ensure that clients get clearance for proper diagnosis and treatment, payment of bills, and replacement of lost income.

Attorney Louis P. Lombardi has handled both electrical injury claims and electrocution death benefit claims on behalf of the surviving spouse or children. He has also sued manufacturers of equipment or machinery, utility companies, construction subcontractors or property owners whose negligence contributed to the accident. A personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit, unlike workers’ compensation, allows damages for pain and suffering and full replacement of lost future earnings.

Mr. Lombardi has represented injured workers in southeastern Pennsylvania since 1991 and formerly defended insurers and employers. His 30 years of experience and commitment to clients enable him to advocate effectively for your rights. Contact us as soon as possible for a free case evaluation.
