Electrocution is defined as death by electric shock.  Statistics show that nearly 500 electrocutions occur on a yearly basis. The majority of these electrocutions are work or occupational related.  Electrocution caused by consumer products or large household appliances make up most of the difference.  In addition, thousands of persons suffer serious injuries because of contact with electricity on a yearly basis. 

Often times, electric shock injuries and electrocution deaths occur because of the negligence of electric companies.  Unfortunately, electric companies allow their overhead power lines to sag or fall to unsafe levels.  Even after a wind storm, electric companies have the duty to repair any downed or sagging power lines.  They must due this within a reasonable period of time.  Electric utility companies have been held responsible for failing to keep their utility power lines at safe heights, away from your house and the general public.
