Types of Injuries Resulting from an Electrical Explosion
Injuries resulting from electrical explosions are rarely mild. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the most common harm resulting from electrical incidents involves:
- Electrical burns
- Arc or flash burns
- Thermal contact burns
- Internal bleeding
- Tissue destruction
- Nerve or muscle damage
- Involuntary muscle contractions
- Lung damage
- Damage to your eyesight
- Brain damage

In addition, electrical explosions can cause debris to be pushed from the ground or blown from buildings. Flying debris and other projectiles can cause irreparable harm to innocent victims. Electrical explosions can also result in an arc flash or an arc blast, which can be cataclysmic to anyone near the epicenter.
Common Causes of Electrical Explosions
Electrical explosions can have a number of underlying causes. Some of the most common causes include:
- Antiquated or outdated wiring
- Water seeping into electrical systems
- Gas leaks
- Old pipes or conduit
- Human error
In order to determine the root cause of the explosion, you will likely need to conduct a thorough investigation. Without the help of an experienced attorney, you may not be able to obtain all of the evidence you need to prove your case.
Getting compensation for your injuries will often require subpoenaing documents, video and audio recordings, safety records, and company memos in addition to retaining well-qualified experts to opine as to the negligence and short-comings of the party responsible for the electrical explosion. To have the best chance at receiving the maximum recovery available in your case, you need to contact a highly-qualified trial attorney.
