Public Electrical Accidents

Public electrical accidents are mostly as a result of cutting trees near high voltage electrical power lines; and stepping on, touching or getting into contact with fallen power lines. As it is difficult to tell whether a power line is live or not unless measured or detected by instruments, the public have fallen prey to electrical accidents because of the assumption that once the wires are down they are switched off.

Premises fire accidents

The causes of industrial and residential electrical fire accidents is generally due to overloading of electrical circuits with too many appliances or too large of an appliance causing more current to flow in it than that for which it was designed. Electrical fires are caused by the heat generated due to the passage of the electric current, the heat being sufficient to ignite flammable material, liquid or gas.
