Electrocution & Electrical Injuries

Rhode Island Personal Injury Lawyers

Contact with electricity can cause catastrophic injuries or death. If the victim does not lose his or her life, such lasting injuries as severe burns, spinal cord injury, organ damage, eardrum rupture, and amnesia are just a few of the consequences of a severe electric shock.

The cost of emergency treatment and ongoing medical care may be considerable. The victim may be unable to return to work for a time, if at all. The family of a victim who has lost his or her life due to electrocution will be facing a future without the support, love, and care of their loved one.
