Many electrocution injuries occur because of failure to comply with regulations for working around power wires, or failing to follow protocol for installing electrical systems. Here in Maine, our Overhead High-Voltage Line Safety Act prohibits any equipment coming within ten feet of lines. Additionally, the act requires notification be provided to the power company 72 hours before the start of any work that comes near a power line.
Factors that may lead to an electrocution injury include:
- Improperly installed wiring
- Failure to warn employees of high voltage area
- Tree workers directed to work near power lines in violation of protocol
Electrocution injuries can occur in the home or workplace, and may lead to:
- Loss of movement
- Nerve damage
In the event the electrocution injury occurs at the workplace, federal OSHA guidelines for electrical safety in the workplace may have been violated. We are ready to help you.
