Arc Flash Burn Injury Claims
What Is a Flash Burn?
Arc flashes occur when there is a high-voltage difference across a gap
between conductors, causing powerful currents to travel through the air
tremendous amounts of energy.
Temperatures as high as 36,000 degrees Fahrenheit, which is hotter than
the surface of the sun, have been recorded in arch flashes and they:
- Destroy skin
- Melt metal
- And potentially igniting clothing, leading to further burns
The pressure wave blast of these electrical catastrophes can also carry
up to 1000 pounds of force, causing nearby individuals to be thrown about
and possibly suffer hearing loss.
What Causes Arc Flash Burns?
Arc flash burns can be caused by any of the following:
- Outdated or worn electrical equipment
- Unlocked electrical vaults and transformers
- Improper training of electrical workers
- Inadequate safety supervision

What Damages Can Be Recovered for Arc Flash Burn Injuries?
Extensive skin grafts or amputations are often required to treat these

file a personal injury claim against the responsible parties and pursue maximum compensation on your behalf.
Depending on the circumstances, you may be eligible to recover reimbursement for your:
- Medical treatments
- Rehabilitation expenses
- Lost wages
- Pain and suffering
- And emotional distress
Why You Should Consult with an Experienced Arc Flash Burn Attorney
burn injuries are caused by open flames. High-voltage electrical arcs can be equally
devastating, resulting in severe thermal burns that destroy skin and tissue
as well as trauma from the force accompanying such a flash, which can
result in concussive damage.
