Saltz Mongeluzzi Barrett & Bendesky and its team of electrical accident attorneys is the leading law firm representing victims of electrical accidents in the Philadelphia region.

Given the extraordinary danger inherent in the generation and transmission of high-voltage electrical current, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court has stated that utilities owe the public and workers the highest duty of care. More than any other law firm in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, SMBB dozens of times has successfully held utilities to that high standard.

Our electrical accident attorneys have repeatedly represented victims of the most common types of catastrophic electrocutions and electrical accidents:

  • A crane contacts a high-voltage line
  • A worker contacts overhead power lines obscured by vegetation
  • An equipment operator digs into underground electrical facilities
  • High voltage switch gear fails

Proven Results

Saltz Mongeluzzi Barrett & Bendesky's team of electrical accident attorneys has secured numerous multi-million dollar verdicts and settlements for our clients in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, including:

Electrical Accident Expertise

Robert J. Mongeluzzi, SMBB shareholder, leads our team of highly experienced electrical accident attorneys. He is the founder and chairman of the Electrical Accident Group of the American Association of Justice, which trains lawyers across the country to represent such accident victims - a topic on which he also writes and lectures extensively.

These cases are complex and challenging. Often there are no witnesses, and forensic evidence is sparse at best. Electric shock victims do not always exhibit clear burn patterns, and critical evidence disappears once utilities restore power.

Our electrical accident attorneys, however, have the insight and experience to reconstruct such incidents. To each case we bring an in-depth knowledge of OSHA regulations, the National Electrical Safety Code, NFPA 70E, as well as state codes, life safety codes and local building codes. We combine that with a deep familiarity with the life-altering injuries - including brain injuries, neurological, muscular and vascular damage, external and internal burns, disfigurement and amputations - contact with electricity can cause.

Compensation for Electrical Accidents

Public utilities, contractors and utility customers who operate their own high-voltage systems may all be liable for electrocutions and electric shock injuries. Our attorneys can help you get all the compensation to which you may be entitled - including compensation for pain and suffering, emotional trauma, medical costs, lost income and future earnings.

If you or a relative has been injured or killed as a result of an electrical accident, Saltz Mongeluzzi Barrett & Bendesky is committed to obtaining all the results you need and deserve. To learn how we can help you, contact our electrical accident attorneys today.
