      What are Common Types of Electrical Burn Injuries?

      The United States Department of Labor did a study which says that people who get an electrical burn injury are more likely to suffer it on their hands rather than anywhere else on the body. That is likely due to the fact that when you work with live wires, for instance, it’s a hands-on job. Workers who are often working with electrical currents are most likely to be putting their hands closer to the live current than any other body part.

      There are so many different ways this may happen to someone and when these accidents happen, the electrical shock they experience can be severe. Electrical burns affect more than the skin. There are many ways someone can be impacted by exposure to electrical currents deeper in the body than the skin.

      Here are some common injuries that people have suffered due to exposure to electrical currents:

      • Nerve damage
      • Damage to tissue
      • Cardiac arrest
      • Coma
      • Needing to be on a ventilator
      • Internal bleeding
      • Brain death
      • Spasms and twitches
      • Muscle wasting

      Sometimes you may not realize that your injuries are internal if you suffered an electrical burn. You may go some time thinking that the burn to your skin is your biggest battle. That may turn out not to be the case. If certain injuries go untreated, they will likely worsen and, in the worst of cases, can cause death. We urge you to seek care right away. You can go to the Trauma Center in August University Medical Center.

      Our Augusta electrical burn lawyers want to hear from you right away. In Georgia, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of your accident, so we urge you to reach out right away to get the help that you need. Call us right away to set up a free, initial consultation.

      How Do Electrical Burns Happen?

      Anyone can receive an electrical burn if there is live electricity present where people are. This happens most commonly in workplaces where electricians are working with live wires. This can happen in your home, too, however.

      When you are using appliances that plug into outlets, you need to know if they are turned on so as to avoid an electrical burn when you are utilizing it or making contact with it. If, for instance, you have your coffee machine on your countertop by your sink and the device gets soaking wet from the sink overflowing then you can suffer serious electrical burns, shock, and potential injuries that can lead to death.

      In the home, the place where people are most likely to come in contact with an appliance that is a safety hazard due to a wet environment or wet hands is within the bathroom. You will notice that in most homes up to fire code there are no outlets near the bathtub or shower. That is to avoid the use of appliances near water due to the risk of electrical burn or shock.

      You should never use things such as laptops or a phone plugged into its charger when you are in the bathtub or even shower. You should not touch your hairdryer if you are in water. Even things that are connected to batteries can create enough energy to shock you when wet. So, avoid all these things when you are in water or wet.

      Outside of the home be aware of live wires such as power lines that have fallen. You should always avoid them and any water surrounding that area, as you could suffer serious injury.
