Burns & Other Injuries Resulting from Electrical Accidents Throughout Pennsylvania

An electric shock can cause severe and lasting internal damage. These electric burns can be both surface wounds and internal wounds. When the wound is internal, the entry and exit wounds are visible on the body.

Some electrical shock burns may look minor, but the damage caused to the heart, muscles, or brain may be severe.

Some of the most common side-effects of electrical shock include:

  • Muscle spasms
  • Chronic pain
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Breathing problems
  • Brain damage
  • Lung failure
  • Seizures

Electrical shocks can also lead to cardiac arrest due to the electrical effect on the heart, causing death. When the current passes through the body, the muscles and nerves get affected, and tissues get destroyed.
