What compensation can you pursue after electrocution accidents in Texas?

In the event that you and your attorney are able to prove your case, you may be qualified to recover any or all of the following economic or non-economic damages:

  • Medical bills and expenses: Electrocution accident victims often have to experience expansive treatment, surgeries, and rehabilitation, much of which insurance will not protect. Favorable verdicts could pay for past and future medical treatments.
  • Missed wages (lost and future): Many victims will be incapable of working because of the injuries they sustained, resulting in lost wages and loss of benefits.
  • Pain and suffering: This type of compensation takes into account the emotional trauma and long-term pain you will have to endure as a result of your injuries. It can be partly quantified by looking at the costs of therapy, the duration of suffering, and more.
  • Wrongful death: In the unfortunate event that a loved one died from electrocution, their family can file a claim on behalf of the deceased. Compensation can include funeral expenses, lost wages, and loss of consortium.
