Electrical Injuries in New Jersey

Electricity is everywhere. From our offices to our homes and even on the roads in between, we all encounter electricity as a part of our daily lives. It is responsible for the incredible progress and the modern marvels of the last two centuries, and yet is also an incredibly dangerous and potentially deadly force.

When it comes to electricity, carelessness can cost innocent people their lives. Indeed, electrical exposure leads to hundreds of deaths and thousands of injuries in the United States every year.

More often than not, electrical injuries in New Jersey result from negligence. Common culprits include unsafe working conditions, defective product design, negligent performance by a service provider, or inadequate maintenance by a public utility. These can lead to severe electrical shock, electrical burns, permanent injury, and even death.

At The Law Offices of James C. DeZao, P.A., we understand just how catastrophic electrical injuries can be. Even a moderate injury can produce staggering medical bills and take an overwhelming toll on your quality of life.

We are here to help electrical injury victims. When negligence or recklessness is to blame, you and your family may be entitled to significant financial compensation pursuant to New Jersey personal injury law. We’ll fight to ensure you’re treated fairly.

Electrical injuries can happen at home, at work, in public, or virtually any place supplied by electric power. In the vast majority of cases, they occur because of a preventable hazard that was unknown to the victim prior to the accident.
