San Jose Electrocution and Electrical Accidents Attorney

Electric Shock Injury Lawyer Serving Palo Alto, San Benito County, and South Bay Area

Wiring a building for electricity is one of the most crucial parts of the construction process, but with so many contractors on a given construction site, one small mistake can lead to major accidents and serious injuries. If you have been injured in an electrical accident on a construction site, you want an experienced electrocution injury attorney on your side. By enlisting legal help, you can determine who was responsible for an electrical accident. Your lawyer can help you take steps to recover financial compensation that will allow you to address the ways you and your family have been affected by the injuries you have suffered.

For more than 45 years, attorney John J. Garvey, III has been helping work injury victims protect their rights and maximize their compensation after electrical accidents and other types of injuries. While all workers are entitled to workers' compensation, Mr. Garvey can help you explore your full range of options, including pursuing personal injury claims that can provide you with the medical care and financial support you need.

Protection and Perils of Electrical Workers

Electrical accidents occur all too frequently on construction sites. Due to the highly specialized nature of the job, electricians have to take every precaution, or else every other worker on a construction site is at risk. At the same time, other contractors have to follow proper safety guidelines, or they could put electricians and other workers at serious risk of electrocutions. The law office of John J. Garvey, III handles a variety of different types of electrocution accidents, including:

  • Electrocutions that occur when workers forget to turn off breakers.
  • Contact with wires or equipment in construction areas that have not been properly marked with warning signs or tags.
  • Electrocutions that occur when tree cutters come into contact with power lines or when construction equipment causes cut power lines to come into contact with the ground, the structure of building, or equipment used at a construction site.
  • Electrical injuries caused by faulty wiring in temporary electrical panels.
  • Electrocutions caused by defective equipment or faulty materials.

You may have more options for receiving financial compensation than just workers' comp. If someone besides your employer or a co-worker was responsible for the conditions that led to your accident, you may be able to recover additional damages, including full compensation for loss of wages, future wage loss, and pain and suffering. Attorney John Garvey can take a comprehensive look at your accident, help you evaluate your options, and determine whether you may be able to pursue compensation from any third parties who were responsible for your injuries.
