ELECTRICAL BURNS AND ELECTROCUTION
Electrical Accidents: Injury Claims And Lawsuits
At McCoy & McCoy, we have over 50 years of combined legal experience. As trial lawyers, our firm represents injured victims in a range of personal injury cases, including those involving electrocution accidents in the workplace.
We are highly committed to each individual we serve, and our experience in workplace injury cases has proven to be valuable to those who were injured on the job. We have a record of settling over 90 percent of cases without the need to take the case to trial, but when necessary, we are prepared to press forward with a lawsuit, if an injury claim cannot be resolved outside of court.
Our principal lawyer, Frank McCoy Jr., is certified in civil trial law by the National Board of Trial Advocacy — a distinction that fewer than 0.5 percent of all Connecticut lawyers have earned.
Based in Hartford, we are committed to representing injury victims and families of victims throughout Connecticut.

How Electrocution Accidents Happen
Electrocution injuries can occur in the workplace in a variety of situations, and are most likely to occur on a construction site, but also could take place in an office environment or other workplace. Electrical injuries are often fatal, or lead to permanent damage such as disfigurement due to severe electrical burns. Treatment for electrical injuries is often extensive, including years of surgeries to attempt to repair the appearance of damaged skin and tissue.
We Establish And Pursue The Full And Fair Value Of Your Case
The cost of treatment can range into the hundreds of thousands within a few short months. The negligent party must be forced to pay for all medical costs, as well as the pain and suffering, loss of quality of life, and other damages.
Whether the negligent party is a utilities company, a subcontractor or other party, it is imperative that our legal team reviews your case immediately. You have the right to workers’ compensation benefits, but there may be third-party liability in your case, allowing us to pursue further compensation beyond those benefits.
Workers’ compensation benefits are important, and a workers’ comp claim must be carefully managed so that every possible form of compensation is sought.
A workplace injury includes emotional trauma and stress as well as physical pain and suffering. With legal representation from our professional team, you may be awarded compensation to pay your medical bills, and compensatory damages for emotional and physical stress, future medical care and treatment, and all other direct or indirect costs related to the electrocution injury.
