Some of the most severe injuries suffered stem from accidents involving electricity. Electrical accidents can cause death and serious injury. Thus, there are special laws that regulate and precautions that are necessary when either a consumer or worker has to deal with electricity.

Types of electrical accidents include, but are not limited to:

-Power plant construction accidents

-Accidents to journeymen and electricians

-Construction accidents

-High voltage switches and lines

-HECO and HELCO installations

-Crane contacts with high voltage

-Sagging power lines

-Uninsulated transmission line contacts

-Failures to properly ground outlets and wiring

-Frayed or damaged wiring

-Unguarded or unfenced power installations

If your electrical accident injury occurred as a result of the negligence or fault of someone other than your employer, you probably have a claim against the at-fault party. If you were seriously injured in an electrocution - electrical accident,

you may need to hire an attorney to assist you with your situation.

Some Samples of Electrical Accident - Electrocution Claims

Defective Products
Many electrical accident claims turn out to be product liability claims arising because a defective product has caused injury. If a defective product is involved in your electrical accident/ electrocution claim, you may wish to review the Products Liabilty page to examine some of the issues in a products liability claim. Some examples of dangerous electrical products which have been led to successful products liability claims include: Accident Lawyer Hawaii - Equipment dangerous products - like washing machines, toasters, cooktops or other electric appliances or any other electrical device- which can cause an electrocution accident. Similarly, some tools and other electric equipment used in the construction trade have been known to cause electrical injury - electrocution when used. Evidence that a product failed to comply with UL or CPSC standards and caused an electrical accident may generally be used as evidence of negligence, but it is usually not conclusive evidence of negligence under Hawaii law.

High Power Lines
Another whole class of injuries which give rise to electrical injury claims are the injuries caused by various types of high power lines. Some electrical injuries - electrocutions have been caused by a crane or other high piece of equipment coming into contact with a high power line while work was being done near the lines. Even tree trimmers have been subject to such electrical dangers. In Hawaii with our high winds, people working in the area of high power electrical lines need special safety protections.

Recent Personal Injury and Car Accident News


Future damages can be hard to prove in a personal injury case. But, nonetheless, the Hawaii courts hold that future damages may be awarded where there is competent medical testimony to demonstrate a future loss (such as a permanent injury or future complications, disability, limitations or pain and suffering). But supporting medical testimony is critical. "We have held that where the issue as to permanency of an injury or as to future pain or suffering is subjective in character, there must be competent expert opinion testimony as to the permanency of an injury or as to future pain and suffering before a jury may be permitted to consider such damages." Bachran v. Morishige, 469 P.2d 808, 813 (Haw. 1970)
