St. Louis Electrocution Accident Attorneys
There are more than 30,000 electrocution accidents each year. The injuries associated with electrocution can be devastating.
An electrical injury can be very devastating. This kind of injury occurs to the skin or internal organs when a person comes into direct contact with an electrical current.
When the human body comes in contact with an electrical current, the electricity passes through the body very easily. While some burns may look minor on the skin, the internal damage may be much more serious and can often be deadly.
A person that is electrocuted can experience cardiac arrest due to the effect it has on the heart. Electrocution can cause muscle, nerve and tissue damage that may leave a person disabled. The thermal burns a person receives can be devastating as well.
