Electrical fires and electrocutions can occur in all Georgia, especially those with have industrial centers. Property owners, including business owners, have a duty to ensure that the electrical wiring on their property is not faulty. Did you know that electrical fires are among the top five causes of building fires that can result in serious and fatal burn injuries? The Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IIBHS) reports that fires caused by faulty wiring often lead to more serious property damage and more substantial injuries than other types of fires. In addition to life-threatening fires that cause significant property damages, faulty wiring can also cause electrocution injuries.

If you or someone you love sustained injuries because of faulty electrical wiring, you may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit.

Knowing the Signs of Faulty Electrical Wiring at Properties

The IIBHS emphasizes that commercial property owners and business owners need to train employees to identify electrical hazards and to understand signs of faulty electrical wiring, which can include the following:

  • Regularly blown fuses and/or tripped circuits

  • Minor shocks from appliances

  • Insulation that is dried out

  • Any exposed inner wires in electrical items or in the wiring through the property

  • Discolored or worn out wall outlets

  • Brittle wires

  • Frequent light flickering or dimming

All of these warning signs can indicate that there is a short in the electrical wiring, that the wiring is damaged or worn, or that the electrical wiring was installed improperly. It is the responsibility of a property owner to fix any faulty electrical wiring to prevent fires, shocks, and burn injuries to anyone on the premises.
