A construction site is an inherently dangerous environment. The risk of injury from a variety of sources is great, including injuries caused by electrocutions and explosions. A general contractor or subcontractor may fail to properly locate live electrical lines or gas lines before excavating. Live electrical lines or gas lines may be damaged posing a high risk of injury to the workers during the course of construction at the job site. A worker operating a heavy piece of machinery could be electrocuted as a result of coming into contact with a live electrical line. Gas lines which are ruptured could result in explosions and substantial chance of serious injury to the workers at the job site.
Regardless of the cause, workplace electrocutions and explosions are a highly dangerous phenomenon. If you have been hurt because of an electrocution or explosion on a job site, you want an experienced lawyer to protect your rights and your future.
