Electrical explosions can be extremely dangerous realities for a number of people, especially those in at-risk professions. These explosions can be the result of human error, poorly placed electrical sources, and even inadequate training. As a result, burns and injuries can often occur in these scenarios, including those that are a result of fires and shrapnel, as well as electrical burns themselves.

It’s not rare for insurance companies or workplaces to do everything they can to minimize payouts when it comes to injuries incurred from electrical explosions.
