Construction workers work around a variety of hazards on job sites. One of these many hazards is electrical current. These currents can come from generators or power connected to the grid. Either way, the injuries that can occur when a person suffers from an electrical shock can be serious. In some cases, the person might be electrocuted and die. We know that construction workers don’t go in for a day at work with the idea that they will get themselves shocked so they can seek compensation. When an electrical injury occurs, it is because of an accident or a safety violation.
Electrical currents are dangerous for the human body. These currents can cause thermal burns on the skin where the current enters the skin. They can also cause tissue, muscle and nerve damages as the current travels through the body. Cardiac arrest can occur if the electric current affects the heart. As you can probably imagine, all of these injuries require medical care.
