Damages from Electrocution and Electrical Shock Accident
We fight to obtain the compensation that our injured clients deserve due to electrocution, electric shock and other causes, including all damages allowed under California law for all injuries and damages suffered, including the following:
- All past and future medical, hospital, specialized burn care, physical therapy, psychological and dental charges;
- All past and future loss of earnings and also all time lost at work, even if paid for it under sick leave, vacation time or other benefits as under the California Collateral Source Rule the responsible party should not benefit by payments made by others (e.g., your employer) or the benefits you earned and may have used up;
- Loss of enjoyment of life and activities you missed-out on;
- All past and future pain, suffering, emotional distress and inconvenience;
- If the injured victim was working when injured, then also all benefits permitted pursuant to California Workers’ Compensation law;
- If the victim of the electrocution was killed, then the lawful heirs have a wrongful death claim. In such event, the heirs may be entitled to the special damages permitted for wrongful death, more fully described in our wrongful death damages web page.
- All car damage and other property damage, rental charges and all loss of use of property (as sometimes one cannot afford to rent a replacement vehicle but still suffers from the loss of use of that property and, therefore, is entitled to compensation for that loss);
- All diminution in value of your car or other property that is damaged in the accident. In other words, even after your car or other damaged property is repaired, it just might not be the same or as valuable had it never been damaged in the first place. Therefore, California law authorizes payment for the difference in value after the damaged property was repaired compared to its pre-accident value, which is usually more so, therefore, you may be entitled to that extra compensation for the property’s reduced value post accident;
- And any and all other appropriate damages permitted under California law.
