Electric Shock Injury and Death

We have secured compensation in a wide range of injury and wrongful death cases by demonstrating the negligence that led to the tragedy and by demonstrating the needs and losses of our clients.
We handle electrocution and electrical shock cases in Galveston County and Houston and throughout Texas. You can call us 24 hours a day on our emergency line (713-829-6048) for a free consultation and prompt action.
League City Work Injury Lawyer
League City electrocution injury attorney, Larry Tylka has represented work injury victims and families of electrocuted persons in a wide range of occupations and scenarios:
- Crew members on ships or offshore oil rigs
- Cruise ship employees or passengers
- Construction workers
- Oil refinery and chemical plant workers
- Utility company linemen

When electricity goes through the body, it can result in severe electrical burns, cardiac arrest or heart arrhythmia, damage to the central nervous system, organ damage or brain damage. These serious and catastrophic injuries are often irreversible, requiring nursing or assisted care, rehabilitation and expensive medications to manage the pain.
In building a case for compensation, we consider medical and personal care, extent of permanent disability, lost earning capacity, and damages for pain and suffering.
We have sued utility companies, manufacturers, construction site subcontractors and property owners for negligence or defective products leading to electrical accidents. Whether the shock occurred in the workplace, at the home of a family member or neighbor, or on public property, we will explore all possible avenues of compensation.
