Electric Shock Injuries and Relevant Regulations - Info from Chesapeake Personal Injury Attorneys

https://www.hsinjurylaw.com/library/electric-shock-injuries-and-electrocution-deaths---virginia-injury-law-firm-breaks-down-the-basi.cfm.

Kevin Duffan and Rick Shapiro, two Chesapeake personal injury attorneys, discuss the regulations that are relevant if a victim suffers an electric shock injury or is electrocuted as a result of equipment coming in contact with a power line. Rick explains that there are federal regulations through OSHA which basically state that if any type of crane, hoist, or boom is within 10 feet of a power line, it is a regulatory violation. There are also state-based regulations that need to be considered when pursuing a personal injury, or wrongful death, claim against an at-fault party.
