Electrical accidents occur everyday in the workplace and injuries are not limited to those in utility and construction occupations. For those that work outdoors, unsafe power lines can shock and burn workers, leaving lasting injuries and physical scars. When electrical voltage flows through tissues and bone, it leaves both an entry and exit wound on the body. Even if someone is shocked on their hand, they may have a serious electrical burn on the leg where the voltage leaves the body. A poorly wired office could give someone a serious shock, as well. Overheating machinery due to electrical malfunctions can also burn or injure workers. These accidents usually can be avoided by correcting hazardous environments or fixing unsafe equipment. Failing to properly maintain electrical equipment is a negligent act. Employers should be held liable for putting their workers in danger.

When a building or structure collapses, it may be due to a combination of natural events and human oversight. Natural events such as a fire or earthquake could cause a building to collapse. However, there are structural precautions that should be taken to protect workers as much as possible. If a building is constructed poorly or with unequal weight distribution, subsequent collapse could trap workers inside and cause serious injuries or death. Also, safety codes are in place to ensure a building is safe for workers.
If the structure of a building does not adhere to safety codes, the property owner should be held liable for any resulting injuries. Additionally, the foundation of a building supports the entirety of the structure and an uneven or poorly constructed foundation may contribute to a building's collapse. Broken bones, severed limbs, burns, or even death could result from the collapse of a building. Workers' compensation laws are in place to protect you from the financial losses incurred if you are injured in a building collapse. Your family could face the daunting task of sorting through medical bills, making up for lost pay, and dealing with the psychological effects of pain and suffering after an injury.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured by a building or structural collapse, please contact Soloff & Zervanos, P.C. today for a free comprehensive review of your case.
