Construction and factory workers often work in areas that feature numerous hazards such as a strong and sometimes uninsulated electric current. Because of this, workers are informed of these live wires and the attendant risks, as well as provided with training and gear to help them handle these electric circuits as needed. Electrocution happens when current flows through the body after it comes into contact with an electric current outlet. The current typically seeks to find an outlet and as a result, it may use the human body as a conductor on its way out. Quite often, electrocution accidents at work end up being fatal, and when this happens, the decedent’s loved ones must do what they can to recover compensation on their behalf.
