Our legal team has extensive experience fighting for, and receiving, the following forms of compensation on our clients’ behalfs:
- Medical bills and expenses: Electrocution accident victims often have to undergo extensive treatment, surgeries and rehabilitation, much of which insurance will not cover. Favorable verdicts could pay for past and future medical treatments.
- Missed wages (both past and future): Many victims will be unable to work because of the injuries they sustained, resulting in lost wages and loss of benefits.
- Pain and suffering: This form of compensation takes into account the emotional trauma and long-term pain you will have to endure as a result of your injuries. It can be partially quantified by looking at the costs of therapy, the duration of suffering and more.
- Wrongful death: If a loved one died from electrocution, their family can file a claim on behalf of the deceased. Compensation can include funerary expenses, lost wages and loss of consortium.
