According to US government statistics, electrical accidents rank third in the construction industry’s so-called “fatal four” causes of worker deaths. Each year nearly 100 construction workers are killed by electrocution and hundreds of others are seriously injured. Not surprisingly, electrical workers suffer the most electrocutions per year, but the victims are often construction laborers, carpenters, supervisors of non-electrical workers, and roofers.
Given the extraordinary danger inherent in the generation and transmission of high-voltage electrical current, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has held that utilities owe the public and workers the highest duty of care. More than any other law firm in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, SMBB has successfully held utilities to that high standard in dozens of cases.
