Springfield Electrocution Attorneys • Missouri and Arkansas Electrical Burn Attorneys
Electrocution technically means a fatality, but sometimes it refers to injuries from contact with live current. Trial lawyers Dan Moody and Paul Wacker have handled many scenarios of electrical accidents:
- Contact with overhead power lines or buried cables
- Contact with wires on ladders and bucket trucks
- Failure to shut off power at construction sites
- Exposed wiring, electrical shorts, ungrounded wires and arcing
For example, we were involved in the case of a boy who was electrocuted in a private swimming pool because an underwater lamp was not grounded correctly.
In one high-profile case, Dan Moody successfully sued a power company on behalf of two young boys who climbed into a tree house and touched a “non-live” high-voltage wire. One boy lost his arm and the other lost his hand. Mr. Moody obtained a seven-figure recovery and structured the settlement so that his clients would be taken care of for the rest of their lives.
We know how to work up full damages in catastrophic injury claims to compensate clients for the profound impact and for ongoing needs. We work with electric shock victims and their doctors and family members to recover full compensation for amputation, severe electrical burns, neurological impairment, brain damage, heart damage or organ damage; surgery and physical therapy; lost income, lost quality of life, and pain and suffering.
