Electric Shock Injury Claim – A Case Study

David Healey, a specialist serious injury Solicitor with Carter & Carter Solicitors, dealt with this particular electric shock injury claim. He said: 

“We were contacted by a client who had been turned away by a number of Solicitors who he had contacted about a potential electric shock injury claim after an accident at work.  He was an electrician but had suffered a significant electric shock injury on a job due to what he saw as the negligence of another electrician.  He suffered extensive burns and after a long chat we agreed to take his case on despite it being complicated.  Even though our client was not an employee but a Sub-Contractor we agreed to take his electric shock injury claim on as we believed that the building contractors had been negligent.”

Liability/Blame for this Electric Shock Injury Claim

“Our client was a Sub-Contractor working on a new build housing estate when he was electrocuted through what we saw as no fault of his own. Our client was cutting through an electrical cable which unbeknownst to him was live which resulted in the cable exploding in his face and him being thrown across the room.”

“It seemed clear to us that the company in charge of the building work had failed to provide a system of work that was planned and organised so it was safe and without risk to the health of workers.  We argued that the builder had employed another electrician who negligently made the cable live whilst our client was cutting it.”

The building company and their Insurers fiercely denied being at fault hoping to rely on the fact our client was a Sub-Contractor and not an employee but after applying pressure we eventually obtained a settlement offer and much needed compensation for our client.”
