Santa Clara County Electrocution Injury Lawyer

San Jose Injury Attorney for Victims of Electric Shock

If you have experienced an electric shock, or if your family member was killed because of electrocution, you will need to understand who was responsible. These injuries can occur for a variety of reasons, including improper wiring in a building or defects in appliances or other products. At the Law Office of John J. Garvey, III, we can help you determine your options for filing a premises liability claim against a property owner who failed to take the proper steps to prevent electrical injuries, or we can identify other parties who may have been responsible for your injuries. We will fight to help ensure that you are compensated for an electrical injury or a wrongful death caused by electrocution.

Representing a Variety of Electrical Injury Cases

Attorney John Garvey has represented injured and bereaved clients who have been affected by electrical injuries in circumstances such as:

  • Electrocutions caused by defective consumer appliances such as hairdryers
  • Electrocution or electric shock caused by defective wiring in hotels or apartment buildings
  • Electrical injuries suffered by workmen on the job in locations such as construction sites
  • Contact with electrical transformers that were not properly protected
  • Electrocutions from power lines that have fallen or come into contact with houses or trees

Individual Attention From an Experienced Lawyer

San Jose electrical injury lawyer John J. Garvey, III provides high-quality, individualized counsel and advocacy for each client our firm represents. He will make sure the proper steps are taken to pursue compensation from the parties who were responsible for electrocution injuries. We can help victims address issues such as burn injuries and neurological impairment, ensuring that they will be able to receive the proper medical treatment while also addressing the other ways their injuries have affected them. In cases where a person suffered fatal electrical injuries, we can help surviving family members pursue compensation for their financial losses, the loss of companionship with their loved one, and the emotional trauma they have experienced.

We work to identify the cases of electrocution accidents and hold the responsible parties liable for their negligence. Tree trimming and contact with power lines are common causes of electrocutions in northern California. Faulty wiring in homes, apartment buildings, or businesses may also lead to electrical injuries. We will take action to investigate the causes of an accident as soon as possible — before a property owner or power company has had the opportunity to cut branches, re-string power lines, or repair wiring. We will work to ensure all relevant evidence will be considered, and we will fight to help injury victims receive the compensation they need.
