Construction sites contain a variety of environmental hazards. One of the most dangerous is the presence of sometimes poorly protected electrical equipment that may expose a victim to high voltage. Whenever a person is exposed to high-powered electrical currents, they are extremely likely to be severely injured or even killed. Whether a person’s injury is minor or more severe, the medical costs of treating electrical injuries may place an enormous financial burden on the victim.
If you have suffered an electrical injury at a construction site due to the negligence of a construction company, worker, or other party, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses and losses.

Types of Electrical Injuries
High voltage has a variety of dangerous effects when unsuspecting victims are exposed to it. The following are a few of the more common types of injuries involved with electrical accidents:
- Burns to the skin and tissue below the dermis
- Heart fibrillation (a disruption to the heart muscles that causes them to cease working with each other)
- Disruptions to nervous control over affected areas
Depending on the strength of the current involved, a person’s injuries can vary greatly in severity. However, regardless of the severity, any person injured by another party’s neglect should consult with a Kankakee personal injury lawyer about the compensation they may be due.
