  • Tree trimmers or utility workers in bucket trucks (cherry picker trucks) may strike a live power line and receive a fatal jolt of electricity. Sometimes the wrong equipment, like an uninsulated bucket, may also play a part in the fatal electrical accident.
  • Manufacturing defects and improper maintenance can lead to grounding wire failure in home appliances and workplace equipment which can cause electrical burns or fatal electrocution.
  • On construction sites, wiring is often temporary but it must also be safe. After a fatal construction electrical wiring accident, important questions must be asked. Was the wiring done improperly? Was too high a load placed on the wiring? Were frayed wires in contact with water, metal or chemicals?
  • Athletic practice fields can be dangerous when lightning is present. Coaches are responsible for clearing the field when lives are threatened by lightning strikes.

Who Has Responsibility for Electrocution Deaths?

Manufacturers of electrical appliances and equipment are responsible for ensuring that the wiring in their products is properly installed and safe. Electricians at a work site or in a home are responsible for the safe installation of wiring. Employers bear responsibility for maintaining a safe work environment. School districts have an obligation to keep students out of unsafe situations.
