Energized Electrical Lines
by Jeffrey J. Kroll
Throughout our country, all electrical utility companies, such as Commonwealth Edison, have the responsibility to safely install, maintain; and if need be, warn people about the presence of energized electrical lines. This is true whether the lines are strung overhead on poles or buried underground.
Unfortunately, many people are killed each year when they accidently come into contact with these lines, either on the job or in their own backyards.
The attorneys at https://kavenykroll.com/ have experience with individuals that have come into contact with electrical lines, many of those who have sustained injuries consistent with burns, nerve damage, or even death, by electrocution.
Utilities, such as those owned by Commonwealth Edison, are bound by certain state laws and Federal Regulations that govern where the lines are hung or buried, the height or depth which they must be placed, as well as the proximity to buildings or trees.
