The human body isn’t designed to channel high voltage. Unfortunately, bodies conduct electricity so well that it can cause significant harm when it occurs. If you accidentally touch a plug as it’s going into a socket, you lay hands on a live wire, or you otherwise come into contact with electrical current, you’ll not only get a nasty jolt, but you may also suffer burns, damage to tissue, muscle, and nerves, or even harm to your internal organs that could have long-term or life-threatening consequences. If you have been injured in such a way, you may need to speak with an electrocution accident lawyer.
According to National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) research over a 10-year period between 2007 and 2016, 1,651 workers in the U.S. died(opens in a new tab) as a result of an electrical injury. Most victims were active in the fields of construction and maintenance. During that time frame, an additional 21,550 workers suffered non-fatal electrical injuries(opens in a new tab).
National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) data shows that there are at least 30,000 non-fatal shock incidents in the U.S. annually(opens in a new tab) on average, as well as an estimated 1,000 deaths due to electrocution, most often from high-voltage electrical exposure. About 20% of electrical injuries occur in children, but the majority affect workers.

Common Side Effects of Electrical Injuries
It’s not uncommon to experience small electrical shocks that cause insignificant or minor trauma. Plenty of people have received short jolts from electrical outlets, extension cords, or small appliances in the home. These low-voltage incidents are unpleasant, but not usually harmful.
With that being said, even low voltage can be dangerous under prolonged exposure, while short-term exposure to high voltage can prove equally perilous.
The results of electrical accidents will vary by voltage, duration of exposure, how the current moves through your body (i.e., resistance), and personal factors like age, health, and more.
