Injuries Caused By Electrocution
Any contact with electrical current is potentially hazardous to a human being, but not every electrical shock will be fatal. The factors which determine whether or not a victim of electric shock will survive the incident include the magnitude of the current and the specific area of the body which is affected. A shock to one of the extremities is not nearly as likely to kill as is a shock which passes current through the brain or heart. In some cases, an electrocution victim may be stuck in contact with the current, causing any person who attempts to help them to be at risk of electrocution as well. This makes electrocution injuries very dangerous, and often times deadly.
Electrocution is, by definition, a fatal incident, but even those who survive an electric shock are likely to suffer from the following:
- Severe second or third-degree burn injuries
- Permanent scarring or disfigurement
- Tissue damage
- Heart problems
- Neurological effects
- Severe muscle contractions/fractures
- Kidney failure
