Whether it is a private residence, rental property, or public shopping center, owners have a responsibility to keep their properties safe by maintaining safe walkways and stairs, sufficient lighting, and properly installed electricity.
Electrical injuries can be extremely dangerous, accounting for one percent of accidental deaths in the United States each year.

Sometimes, this damage is so severe that the effects are irreversible.

In cases where exposed wires caused electrocution, charges of negligence aren’t usually difficult to prove. If the exposed wires were part of a defective product, a lawsuit may be filed against the manufacturer as well.
