Long and short term effects of workplace electrocution

Workers in Iowa may face the possible danger of electrocution, regardless of whether or not their primary job involves electronics or high sources of electrical energy. A single electrical outlet can deliver enough volts to severely harm or even kill a human, so the dangers of workplace electrocution apply to anyone who works in a building with a source of electricity.

Workers in Iowa are exposed to many different hazards on the job. However, there may be some that you aren't aware of simply because they aren't obvious. At the Law Offices of Gallner & Pattermann, P.C., we work to inform you about all of the potential areas of harm your job could offer.

Your workplace in Iowa may be a dangerous place. Injuries are common in many industries that involve high-risk activities. However, they can also occur in even the most benign of jobs. At Gallner & Pattermann, P.C., we see a range of injuries caused at work. They can be anything from a small accident to a serious traumatic situation. Any time you are hurt at work, it is cause for concern and immediate attention, though, because they can all affect your ability to work normally.
