How a Lawyer Can Help With a Worker's Compensation Claim

Attorney Hart has nearly two decades of defending victims' rights in catastrophic accidents. After an initial consultation in which he listens to the circumstances surrounding the accident, the Hart Law team of experienced associates begins investigating the claim.

If possible, prepare for your initial consultation with the following documents:

  • Medical Records
  • Written record of the events leading up to the electrocution accident
  • Witnesses' names and contact information
  • Any video surveillance footage
  • Insurance information

Although this information is not mandatory for a first meeting, it helps our team develop an accurate claim for you. A resourceful personal injury lawyer knows how to effectively communicate your losses to insurance adjusters and aggressively seek the maximum compensation for you. Be sure you have a resourceful worker's comp lawyer who strives to settle all claims before entering a courtroom, but is aggressive and knowledgeable enough to go to litigation when necessary.

Electrocution/Electric Shock 101

The survival rate for electrocution is just under five percent. Electric shock can cause a devastating injury or untimely death, and should not be taken lightly. If you witness another person being electrocuted, take the following steps:

  • Immediately disconnect the source of electricity
  • Do not touch or move the person until he/she is no longer connected to the current of electricity
  • Do not move the person unless he/she is in immediate danger from another object
  • Call 911 as soon as possible

Common signs that a person needs immediate medical attention:

  • Burns
  • Confused/shocked
  • Shortness of breath
  • Heart problems
  • Muscle pains/ contractions
  • Seizures

If you have suffered an electrocution injury, you may be entitled to significant compensation for your accident, including worker's comp. Hart Law investigates the situation, evaluates your pain and suffering, and defends your rights to financial and employment compensation. Consider the benefits of hiring an experienced Atlanta personal injury attorney.
