Gersowitz Libo & Korek P.C. (GLK), a leader among personal injury firms in the New York area, recently settled a case for $2.5 million involving an electrical arc flash explosion resulting in serious injuries to their electrician client.
GLK prepared for the trial of this case by commissioning an electrical expert to locate an Ã¢â‚¬Å“identical exemplarÃ¢â‚¬Â for illustrative purposes for the jury. This was a key piece of evidence which helped demonstrate that the 80-year old box was the cause of the electrical arc flash.
What is an Electrical Arc Flash
An electrical arc flash is essentially a short circuit that causes a sudden release of electricity through the air. The arc and resulting blast are intensely hot and bright, and can cause serious burns or injuries to those within the blast area. Although an arc flash can happen spontaneously, the more common cause is electrical equipment failure.
Electrical arc flash fires can cause severe personal injuries. In addition, an electrical arc flash can also result in serious damage to electrical equipment.
