Electrocution injuries in North Carolina can happen in most any job atmosphere. In fact, when an individual is injured as a result of electrocution it most often happens while they are at work. These cases generally happen where an individual is doing some type of job near a power source, like a power line or cable box. You do not have to be an electrician to suffer from an electrocution injury. Such accidents frequently happen with electrical work repair, at construction sites, near downed power lines or just during routine maintenance, or after there has been some sort of natural disaster like a hurricane.
Even if it is your fault, you may still be able to recover for an injury sustained in an electrocution case pursuant to North Carolina Workers’ Compensation laws. There are many types of injuries that can result from electrocution including shock, serious burns and even death.
