You cannot rely on the California fire marshals to determine the real cause of a house fire. Their job is strictly to rule out a crime. It can take a team of experienced trial lawyers and independent investigators to prove that a house fire was caused by faulty wiring or a defective consumer product.
Carcione Cattermole Dolinski is a premier Northern California personal injury law firm based in Redwood City. Our attorneys have substantial experience in obtaining financial recovery for victims of electrical burn injuries and house fires caused by faulty wiring or defective electrical devices. We also represent family members seeking financial compensation for the wrongful death of a loved one due to electrocution.
Defective Consumer Products and Faulty Wiring
Carcione Cattermole Dolinski is among the top firms in the region in terms of total recovery obtained for our clients in cases involving defective products, such as:
- Defective electric space heaters
- Other faulty electrical devices, such as cell phone chargers
- House fires caused by an electrical contractor's negligence
Defective smoke detectors or another fire safety failure may also play a part in burn injuries sustained in a fire of electrical origin. To discuss the specifics of your case and to exercise your legal rights to seek maximum recovery after an electrical burn, please contact us today.
Exposure to high-voltage electricity can result in tissue damage, nerve damage, scars, and even neurological and behavioral changes that can be difficult to diagnose. If you or a loved one suffered a serious electrical shock, it is vitally important to seek competent medical evaluation immediately, even if the electrical burns themselves are not severe.
Electrocution and Contractor Negligence
Construction workers are at statistically high risk of electrocution. Improperly rerouted high voltage lines, poorly surveyed construction sites, and failure to install or maintain electrical cut-off switches are among some of the common causes of electrocution on construction sites.
When a negligent contractor or subcontractor fails to follow proper procedure and a serious electrical injury or fatal electrocution occurs, the team at Carcione Cattermole Dolinski can act immediately to protect the legal rights of the family to seek maximum financial compensation.
Whether your electrical injury or the electrocution of a loved one was caused by contractor negligence, a faulty large appliance or improperly installed household wiring, we can help you seek real recovery in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit.
