In order to put workers first, employers must follow the proper safety regulations and proceed with care when the potential for electrocution is present. Most of the time, these unfortunate incidents can be avoided by employers, property owners and other service or utility personnel since they should always treat power lines, wires and other conductors as if they are energized — even if they look to be insulated or inactive.

Sadly, not all employers take these precautions. They sometimes act negligently and put worker's lives in jeopardy. At the South Florida law offices of Friedman, Rodman & Frank , we hold them accountable for the harm they cause.

As experienced Miami serious injury trial lawyers, we have handled personal injury cases for people throughout Florida.

Where Electrocution Can Occur

Experience has taught us that electrocution often happens when people least expect it. Electrocution and electric shock can occur on private property, on construction sites , in manufacturing plants or in public places.

Regardless of where it occurs, attorneys at our law firm have the experience, knowledge and resources necessary to help a victim or surviving family member achieve the best possible results in Florida courts. When necessary, we work with experts, including forensic pathologists, construction safety experts, electrical engineers and civil engineers, to analyze the facts of the case. We also investigate the scene of the accident. We take pictures and talk with witnesses while memories of the accident are still fresh in their minds.

Electrocution and Worker's Compensation

Working near high-voltage power lines or other live electrical currents is dangerous work. Despite the best training and safety measures, accidents still happen. Electrical surges or contact with electrical currents can lead to serious personal injury and wrongful death.

At Friedman, Rodman & Frank, P.A., our personal injury lawyers can represent injured workers — including mechanical workers, utility workers, construction workers and other workers handling or working near power lines and electrical wiring — by helping them obtain the worker's compensation benefits they are entitled to under Florida law.

Under the law, the surviving spouses and children of workers who have suffered electrocution while on the job are entitled to death benefits. We can handle these death benefit claims so that families can focus on coping effectively with the grief and loss they have experienced.

Client Reviews
Carolyn Frank and her firm represented me on a workers compensation injury case, under the defense base act. She did a excellent job from the moment I contacted her until 3 years later the case was settled. Every benefit I was entitled too, Carolyn fought hard to secure. E-mails and phone calls were always returned promptly. Definitely 5 star rating.
★★★★★
Highly recommending Carolyn Frank would be an understatement. Being careful as to whom I would give my case to as I had dedicated most of my adult life to one company. I needed someone who would work for me, value my case and my needs. Carolyn Frank and her valued staff met all of the above. From the first meeting I knew I was in the right office. Her knowledge, professionalism and what I would soon find to be outstanding dedication to my case from her and her staff were second to none.
★★★★★
Mr. Friedman was my choice after a dog bite attack. Him and his firm took on my case in a very professional matter without lacking empathy. I felt like he and his team personally cared for me and they kept me up to date on every step of the process. The outcome was great and I am very happy that I have chosen them. I already have recommended them to my friends and family and if you are looking for legal support I highly recommend a meeting with the firm. Any first time consultation is free, ( to my knowledge). So what do you have to lose. Give them a call! You'll be in great hands.

I met Carolyn Frank about three years ago. Once I met her I knew she was the attorney I needed to handle my case.When we met with her the first time we were there for at least two hours. When I left her office I knew she was the right person to handle my case.At that time my case was 22 years old and I needed someone who knew what they were doing. This was a complex case and it fell under the Long shore Act..There are not many attorneys that handle this type of case in Florida.
