Electricity is the silent killer at Indiana construction sites. Contact with power lines, equipment malfunction, improper insulation, inadequate personal protection, and poor or non-existent training can all lead to instant death.
At Golitko & Daly we have seen the devastating effects of electrical accidents and injuries firsthand. These energy injuries can lead to death, paralysis, quadriplegia, and paraplegia, and may result in multiple claims being filed, such as an Indiana workers’ compensation claim that can help covers lost wages and future medical expenses.
If you’ve been affected by an electrical accident, contact our Golitko & Daly offices in Indianapolis and Kokomo, to schedule a free consultation. Our friendly staff will work hard to get you the compensation you deserve, so act quickly.
An OSHA Certified Engineer Attorney and On-Staff Registered Nurse Working for You
Because of the large power needs of commercial buildings, there are often high voltage power lines both above and below ground. There are also frequently temporary power supplies and power generators. These power supplies can be hazardous if not properly set up and maintained. If you or a loved one has been injured in an electrical accident, take advantage of Golitko & Daly. Having an engineer attorney, OSHA attorney, and Registered Nurse Attorney on your side to evaluate your Indiana personal injury and construction accident claim can prove the difference between just compensation and being left empty handed.
Experienced Indiana Energy Surge and Electrical Accident Attorneys
A common Indiana construction accident involves a crane coming into contact with overhead power lines. This can be deadly for not only the crane operator, but also construction workers on the ground. Serious injuries or death can lead to multiple claims, including workers’ compensation claims before the Indiana Workers Compensation Board, located in Indianapolis, Ft. Wayne, Muncie, Kokomo, Batesville, Evansville, Hammond, Elkhart, New Albany, and many other Indiana cities and towns.
A proper construction site safety plan specifically addresses how electrical safety is to be handled and who has responsibility for each aspect. However, as the general contractor is the party with ultimate control of the jobsite, the responsibility lies with them to provide a worksite free of construction hazards, particularly electrical ones.
At Golitko & Daly, we have OSHA certified staff and focused Indiana workers’ compensation attorneys to help you file all the claims that you or your family may be entitled to.
Electrical accidents can lead to paraplegia or quadriplegia after a work accident, and it is important to get an attorney involved as soon as possible. The longer you go without workers' compensation or an OSHA attorney on your case, the harder it will be for you to resolve your case. Insurance companies have attorneys looking out for them, and so should you.
Personal Injury, Accidental Death, and Paralyzed Workers Attorneys
Electrical accidents and crane accidents are very common throughout Indianapolis, Indiana, and the United States. We have had several large projects in Indiana recently, like Lucas Oil Stadium and Duke Energy, which resulted in near continuous construction around Indiana involving high voltage power. Unchecked, these power sources can lead to death, quadriplegia, paraplegia, or other significant personal injuries and spine injuries.
We have had several successful cases against Duke Energy and various other large construction companies doing business in the state of Indiana. Though most of our cases are settled out of court, we have the resources and the knowledge to take your case all the way to trial, if need be.
