Causes of Power Line Injuries and Accidents
Power line injuries and accidents can occur for multiple reasons but when they do they are life-threatening and can seriously turn your life upside down. The most common causes of power line injury include:
- Errors by Utility Workers and/or Contractors: Utility workers and contractors leave a fuse open and think no one will get hurt. However, if the fuse gets energized and no one knows about it, the wire is live with electricity and people can suffer serious injuries from electrocution.
- Code violations: The authorities and experts have created complex and detailed code books to help prevent serious accidents and injuries. However, sometimes there are crossed lines or other code violations in junction box construction and maintenance. In most cases, these code violations go unnoticed until a storm or other issue causes the lines to be on the ground and accessible to the general public.
- Negligence: In most cases, a utility company is charged with maintaining the safety of a power box. Safety precautions are often required to make sure children and others are not able to get into the power box. The company in charge of maintenance can be held responsible when it negligently fails to provide the appropriate safety precautions to prevent accidents.
