  • Electrical outlets placed in unsafe locations
  • Shorts in electrical appliances due to manufacturing defects
  • Commercial equipment malfunctioning

Can you qualify for long term disability benefits after an electrical accident?

Generally speaking, yes, you may qualify for long term disability benefits after you have been electrocuted, so long as it transpired while you were on the job. These types of injuries can lead to permanent, debilitating injuries to every part of your body, such as the following:

  • Skin
  • Nervous system
  • Hearing
  • Vision

Additionally, contact with an electrical current may lead to the following conditions:

  • Seizures
  • Heart attacks
  • Paralysis

If any of these injuries and/or conditions prevent you from performing the functions of your job, or any other job, then you will most likely qualify for long term disability benefits.

Even if you do qualify, some difficulties may arise for one reason or another, in which case you should reach out to our skilled national long term disability law firm today to discuss the particulars of your case and how we can help tailor a strategy going forward.
