Contacted by injured workers who have been electrified and the families of those who have been electrocuted, Warrenton and Fauquier County injury lawyer Doug Landau recently examined what constitutes a “catastrophic electrical system failure.”  A catastrophic failure in electrical systems is one which causes a dangerous product failure potentially exposing the homeowner to a safety risk.  Several examples might be the failure of a high energy consumption device in the home, such as:

*an electric dryer,
*a motor short in the furnace, or
*an electric water heater.

During a catastrophic failure, hot and conductive plasma gasses can be generated in the branch circuit breaker.    If you, or someone you know, has been injured in an electrical system or on the job electrification accident, please e-mail or call us at ABRAMS LANDAU (703-796-9555)
