ELECTRICAL INJURY ATTORNEYS IN DENVER

Utility Worker

Utility and electrical workers are routinely exposed to challenging and often treacherous work conditions. These underappreciated professionals must work with high-voltage electricity, operate in thunderstorms and other inclement weather, and conduct difficult repairs high off the ground. From electrocution to falls to failing equipment, utility and electrical workers face several job site hazards every day. If you are a utility or electrical worker who has been hurt at work, call an electrocution injury lawyer at Burg Simpson today at 303-792-5595.

In fact, electrical and utility line work has ranked among the nation’s top 10 most dangerous professions for more than a decade now, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. While on-the-job fatalities have fallen over the last 20 years, utility and electrical workers still suffer a 19.2 fatality rate for every 100,000 employees.

Our Denver electrical injury attorneys at Burg Simpson have worked with hundreds of utility workers who have been injured on the job and we have successfully helped them receive the compensation they deserve. Our services do not focus solely on filing workers’ compensation claims, we are there every step of the way to make sure you understand the legal process and your rights, while we help you get back on your feet. If you are an electrical or utility worker who has been hurt on the job, do not try to handle your claim alone. Call Burg Simpson today at 303-792-5595 or fill out our FREE CASE EVALUATION FORM immediately.

CAUSES OF INJURIES THAT MAY REQUIRE AN ELECTROCUTION INJURY LAWYER

The leading causes of injuries to utility and electrical workers, according to the BLS, include:

  • Transportation incidents: Like a lot of other occupations, utility and electrical workers are at a higher risk for motor vehicle accidents than most.
  • Violence: All too often, utility workers are assaulted by residents while simply trying to do their job.
  • Falls: A lot of the repair work these professionals perform is above the ground, which can lead to fatal or devastating falls. This is one area where the rate of incidence sharply has increased over the last decade.
  • Struck by object/equipment: Like construction workers, utility repairmen work with heavy equipment every day.
  • Exposure to harmful substances: Among the potentially harmful substances that utility workers can be exposed to, carbon monoxide is perhaps the most prevalent.
  • Caught between equipment: Electrical workers are frequently at risk of being crushed by or between heavy objects and pieces of equipment.
  • Electrical exposure: These workers are exposed to electricity all the time as part of their job, putting them at high risk of contact with a live current, which can lead to devastating injuries and burns.

If you have suffered any of these injuries while doing your job, you need to get started on your claim immediately. Time is of the essence. Call our electrical injury attorneys in Denver now at 303-792-5595.
