Electrical Shock Accidents

If you have suffered an electrical shock in a construction accident or as a result of a defective product, you may be able to file a claim for compensation. If a live electrical source is left unprotected or unguarded or someone has failed to inform other workers that an electrical source is live, a construction worker can be seriously injured or killed. In such instances, the on-site contractor, property owner, or party directly responsible for the risk may be held liable in the event of an injury. If a piece of electrical equipment is defective and shocks or electrocutes the user, the manufacturer or designer of the electrical device can be held liable.

If you have suffered an electrical shock or a loved one has been electrocuted as a result of another party’s negligence or a product defect, we can help you file a personal injury claim. Serving New York City, including Manhattan and Brooklyn, a personal injury lawyer from Levine and Slavit can advise you of your rights and devise an effective course of action to help you obtain the compensation you are entitled. In the tragic event of a loved one’s death, we can also help you file a wrongful death claim against the parties responsible.

Explosions and Burn Injuries

Explosions and fire can pose a significant risk to a person’s health and livelihood. Though most explosions are associated with flammable materials such as gasoline, not all explosions contain a fireball. Any explosion can result in potentially fatal shrapnel and a dangerous shock wave. If you have suffered cuts, lacerations, broken bones, or burns in an explosion, you may be entitled to compensation. Our attorneys can review your case and determine your eligibility. Rest assured that a personal injury lawyer from Levine and Slavit can protect your rights in a court of law.

Depending on the circumstances surrounding your case, it may be possible to file a claim against the manufacturer or designer of a defective component or the party responsible (either directly or indirectly) for the explosion or the conditions that resulted in the explosion. You may be entitled to obtain financial compensation for medical costs (including future medical costs), rehabilitation costs, loss of wages (including future wages), and pain and suffering. If someone you love has suffered severe burns or catastrophic injury as a result of a fire or explosion, we can assist you in obtaining compensation to cover a lifetime of medical costs and loss of wages. At Levine and Slavit, serving Greater New York City, including the Bronx, a personal injury attorney with extensive litigation experience can provide you with the legal counsel you need to make educated and informed decisions about your claim.
