Construction Site Electrocution From Power Lines
Electrocution is an extremely serious and damaging injury. Not only can it cause severe burns, but it can also damage internal organs as well as lead to permanent nerve or brain damage. One type of accident that leads to electrocution injuries is power line accidents.
Often caused by construction equipment and machinery such as cranes and cherry pickers (man lifts, boom lifts, basket cranes, etc.),the results are catastrophic. When power lines come into contact with such machinery, they passes on their high electric voltage to the machine operating worker, causing serious electrical burns, blown off appendages, loss of limbs, maiming and permanent scarring. Unfortunately, in most cases, injuries are so severe they result in a wrongful death.
