CALL 888-902-5899 TODAY FOR A FREE DOWNED POWER LINE ATTORNEY CONSULTATION.
A downed power line can happen because of excessive wind and rain or heavy snow that causes those lines to snap. It can also be the result of a fire or a vehicle that has crashed into a telephone or electrical pole. No one should ever touch or go near a downed power line, or even touch a person who is in contact with that power line, either indirectly or directly. Don’t even try to move the line with something else, like a branch or other object.
Walk slowly away, taking small steps with feet close together, minimizing the risk that the surging current will connect with your body. If that downed line is in contact with your vehicle, stay in the car, and never drive over a downed line. Call for 911 immediately so a trained personnel can handle things.
Tragedies like brain damage, severe burns and death can result from contacting a downed power line. Loss of income and severe pain and suffering can also result. So if you or someone you know has been injured or killed in this type of accident, contact a downed power line attorney today.
