Electrical Injuries & Their Effects

Electric injuries are extremely dangerous. After falls, electrocution is the second leading cause of death in workplace accidents. Even when electric shocks are not fatal, the resulting injuries can leave you partially or permanently disabled.

Severe electrical burns may require skin grafts and can leave you with lasting injuries, including:

You may also suffer from secondary injuries—such as broken bones, spinal cord injuries, and internal injuries—as a result of being thrown from the electrical source.

At Anesi Ozmon, we recognize the many challenges that electrical and burn injury victims face. Our attorneys are here to help you fight for the full, fair compensation you are owed so that you can manage unexpected physical, emotional, and financial difficulties associated with your injuries.

Workers’ Compensation for Electrical Injury Victims

The Illinois Workers’ Compensation Act allows most employees in the state—including electricians, construction workers, engineers, laborers, and union workers—to recover workers’ compensation benefits after a workplace accident. If you suffered an electrical injury or severe burns on the job, you could be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

In Illinois, workers’ compensation benefits include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Temporary total disability (TTD)
  • Temporary partial disability (TPD)
  • Permanent partial disability (PPD)
  • Permanent total disability (PTD)
  • Vocational rehabilitation
  • Death benefits

Our Chicago electrical injury lawyers are well-versed in the state’s workers’ compensation laws and can help you identify whether you are eligible for benefits and which ones you are entitled to receive.

We can also help you determine whether you have grounds for a third-party, personal injury claim or lawsuit against a negligent party other than your employer. For example, if the incident that resulted in your electrical or burn injuries was caused by defective machinery or equipment failure, you could have a third-party claim against the manufacturer.

Our team knows how to investigate even the most complex of cases to determine exactly what happened and who is liable for your injuries. We have successfully handled numerous construction accident and electrical injury claims on behalf of catastrophically injured victims and the loved ones of those wrongfully killed. Our firm is prepared to fight for the maximum compensation you are owed.

Trust Us with Your Recovery

If you or a family member has been in a workplace accident involving an electrical injury or burn, speak with our attorneys as soon as possible. In Illinois, there are various statutes of limitations that affect the amount of time you have to file an injury lawsuit. Most often, you have two years to sue the liable party for damages in a third-party personal injury lawsuit and three years to file a workers’ compensation claim. The quicker you reach out to our team, the sooner we can begin gathering evidence in support of your claim and build a persuasive case on your behalf.

At Anesi Ozmon, we offer a personalized and collaborative approach. Our attorneys work directly alongside our clients, providing one-on-one attention throughout the legal process. We even provide our personal cellphone numbers to our clients and respond to all calls within 24 hours.

A History of Holding Negligent Parties Accountable

Following an electric shock, many people lose consciousness and/or fall, which can result in additional injuries, like broken bones, head injuries, spinal cord damage, and other serious injuries. At Anesi Ozmon, our Chicago electrical injury attorneys have experience with all of these types of incidents. We know how and where to look for negligence, and we will fight for the maximum compensation available to you.
