Oklahoma City Electrocution Lawyers
Most construction sites contain a number of hidden and unexpected dangers. Oftentimes, defective products can cause serious injury to workers without any warning. This is especially true in cases of electrocution. Both electricians and other construction workers may be exposed to dangerous situations and faulty products that can result in potentially deadly electrocutions. In fact, between 1998 and 2003, electrocutions were the fourth leading cause of death among construction workers.

Causes of Electrocution
Electrocution can cause serious injury and even lead to the death of an individual if he or she is exposed to serious shock. The effects of electrocution are especially dangerous on construction sites where an injury could lead to other fall-related injuries. Electricity is needed to power many of the tools and equipment used on a construction site, but this flow of energy can be dangerous if it is not handled properly. The following types of faulty products can put a person at risk for electrocution:
- Faulty power strips
- Faulty power tools
- Faulty cords attached to power tools
- Faulty extension cords
If these products are designed or produced with a defect, they can result in serious bodily harm or even a loss of life.
