Every year thousands of persons are killed or seriously injured because of faulty or defective wiring. Electrical current is measured in ampere, but more commonly referred to as “amps”. The circuits of the average American home run at between 15 to 50 Amperes. Any active electrical circuit can pose a hazardous threat as it takes only two seconds of exposure to 0.10 Amps of electricity through the body to cause death. Use of a damaged cord, electrical products in a damp area or wet area or an overloaded receptacle should be avoided as it will cause the increased risk of shock.

Consumers who have purchased defective products that result in electrocution represent a large number of those injured. Consumers who have been electrocuted as the result of a defective product may have the right to file a claim against the manufacturer of the product to recover their damages including medical expenses, loss of current and future earnings, loss of enjoyment of life, and pain and suffering.
