Electric Shock at Work Claims can lead to severe injuries and financial loss. If you’ve suffered an electric shock injury in the workplace, it’s crucial to understand your legal rights and options for compensation. At Cohen Cramer Solicitors, we are here to guide you through the process of making a compensation claim. In this article, we will explore the legal framework, types of electric shock injuries, recovery areas, and how we can assist you with a No Win No Fee claim.
The Legal Framework
The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 were introduced to ensure that all workers are properly trained and given regular refresher training when working with electrical equipment, and employers must carry out regular risk assessments and ensure the work environment is safe.
All employers have a duty of care to uphold the welfare and safety of their employees as far as is reasonably possible. In addition, there are several health and safety regulations that they must adhere to, including the Personal Protective Equipment at Work Regulations 1992, and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999.
Electric Shock Accidents and Injuries
Electric shocks can occur in various workplace scenarios, such as faulty equipment, inadequate training, or improper maintenance of electrical systems. The injuries resulting from electric shocks can range from mild to severe and may include burns, cardiac issues, neurological damage, and even death in the most tragic cases. These injuries can lead to significant physical and emotional distress, as well as financial burdens, including medical expenses, lost wages, and rehabilitation costs.
What you can claim for your electric shock at work
If you’ve suffered an electric shock injury at work, you may be eligible for compensation in various areas, such as:
- Pain and Suffering: Compensation for the physical and emotional pain caused by the accident.
- Medical Expenses: Coverage for past and future medical treatments and rehabilitation.
- Lost Earnings: Compensation for lost income due to the injury.
- Special Damages: Recovery for out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a result of the accident.
