Electrocution injuries can occur anywhere, but can often happen in a work environment. Most people would not think this is a common occurrence, but surprisingly there are numerous such injuries occurring in Iowa every year. When electrical injuries occur in the workplace, they are often related to construction projects, which might include electrical wires that are not completely covered up. (Electrocution is a type of construction accident.) Electrocution can also happen to individuals who work with electricity regularly, such as electricians, utility workers, telephone repairmen, cable installers and others. Also occurring at home, electrocution accidents can be caused by faulty wiring, either in the general wiring of the house or an appliance.
