Causes of Electric Shock

Electric shock can come from a number of sources. Direct sources, such as faulty power outlets or downed power lines, are frequently to blame for injuries. Indirect sources, such as faulty appliances, are also often to blame. Regardless of the source, a serious electrical shock may cause:

  • Irreparable nerve damage
  • Electrical burns
  • Cardiac arrhythmia

These injuries can potentially be life threatening. At the very least, they may leave individuals with serious injuries that require intensive medical treatment. In some cases, individuals may never fully recover from their injuries.

In many cases, the sources of electric shock result from negligence. This may be in the form of premises liability, product liability, or some other form of negligence that leaves an exposed electrical current in the presence of an unassuming individual.
