An electrocution accident can cause severe and permanent injuries in a heartbeat. Victims of electrocution are often completely unprepared and unknowing that they are in mortal danger. It is also true that the person electrocuted is often not the one responsible for the accident.
If you have been electrocuted, possibly while working on a construction site or within another industrial field, you need to consider how you will be compensated for your injuries. Coontz Cochran is a law firm based in Texas that can tackle injury claims of all sorts, no matter how complex the case may seem.

Compared to how quickly an electrocution accident can begin and end, the damage caused is absolutely astounding. People who have been electrocuted can suffer a wide variety of injuries, or have preexisting conditions dramatically worsened. Since electricity courses through the victim’s body, a comprehensive diagnoses of all body parts is necessary to check for harm.
Electrocution from a strong power source is likely to cause immediate death. In such incidents, the surviving family members of the victim will need to file a wrongful death claim.
Upfront settlement amounts offered by insurance companies working with the liable party will most likely be far too small. In order to get the right amount of compensation, you must first know your maximum medical improvement (MMI) and when you are likely to reach it. As you move towards your MMI, your medical bills will continue to increase, and you may need years of rehabilitation afterwards. Our construction accident attorneys in Fort Worth can help you calculate your total cost of recovery and advocate for that amount, not a penny less.
You should start exploring your legal options at your first opportunity after you have been electrocuted by a faulty power system, exposed wire, defective product, etc. As long as someone else is liable, you have a chance of recovering compensation to help you pay for your damages.
