Minnesota Electric Shock Injury Attorney

The human body can be affected by an electrical shock in many different ways because every person responds to electrical contact differently.  For example, an electrical shock that may not affect one person could cause permanent disability in another person.

The different types of electrical shock can cause injury to the body in different ways.  A primary injury can cause thermal burns, ventricular fibrillation or neurological damage while a secondary injury can injure soft tissue, cause muscle tears or broken bones.

When the human body makes contact with any source of high voltage, an electrical shock occurs that is strong enough to send a current through the person’s muscles or hair.  The human body can feel a minimum current of 1 milliampere (mA).   The body’s subcutaneous tissue can sustain considerable damage which is why measuring the initial electrical burn site is an inaccurate estimation of how much tissue was involved in the burn.

The risk of deep tissue burns increase due to direct current (DC) which causes continuous and involuntary muscle contractions, forcing the victim to hold onto the source of the electrical current.

Alternating current (AC) interferes more with heart functions than muscle and tissue.

If another person’s negligent behaviour has caused you to suffer from electrical shock injuries, it is imperative that you seek legal advice to discuss how you can obtain compensation to pay for those medical bills, treatments and lost wages if you were unable to return to work.
