We have handled a variety of cases involving electrocution including electrical contact at a local water treatment plant, outside the premises of a bar, and on a construction site.
Crucial in these types of cases is the ability to capture and preserve photographic and documentary evidence as well as arranging immediate evaluation by experts at the site. Electrocution cases may require a forensic pathologist, an electrical and a civil engineer.
Also, it may be necessary to consult with a construction safety expert. Proof of the significant emotional impact of the loss of a family member may require a psychiatrist or psychologist to perform an evaluation.
