Electrocution Wrongful Death And Electrical Shock Work Injury Claims
Serving Injured Workers Throughout Gwinnett County and Walton County, Georgia
A severe burn from a fire, explosion, electrical shock or toxic chemical can take only a second but result in a lifetime of injuries. A serious burn not only scars the flesh but can also impact muscle use and organ function, as well as cause long-term psychological damage.
Workers in the construction, manufacturing and energy supply industries in Georgia face some of the most dangerous working conditions in America. Every year, thousands of work-hours are lost due to serious burns and shock injuries. In most cases, the injured worker is eligible to apply for Georgia workers' compensation benefits for lost wages while out of work. But workers' comp payments don't cover the full extent of financial damages for emergency burn treatment, reconstructive surgeries, physical therapy and long-term life-care needs. Fortunately, the law makes it possible to seek additional compensation from any negligent party that may be held liable for causing the workplace accident or increasing the extent of injuries.

What Is a Third-Party Lawsuit?
Under Georgia workers' compensation rules, an injured worker agrees not to sue his or her employer for damages, in exchange for workers' comp insurance benefits for medical care and lost earning while recovering from the injury. It can be demonstrated, however, that a property owner, product manufacturer or other negligent third party caused the accident and injuries, the worker is entitled to sue for additional damages, above and beyond workers' compensation benefits. These types of claims are referred to as third-party lawsuits.
