This video is part of a series of videos developed by personal injury attorney David Christensen to make consumers aware of the dangers of electrocution when trimming trees.
If your tree is in contact with a high voltage line, do not try to trim the tree. Trees conduct electricity and can shock or even kill you. It’s actually the duty of the utility company to keep trees from coming into contact with high voltage electrical lines. If you see a tree near a utility line that you think may be unsafe, call the electric company. They will send someone out to take care of the situation in a safe manner.
If you or a family member has been the victim of an electrocution accident, allow us to handle your claim. For more information about electrocution cases, visit https://davidchristensenlaw.com/electrocution-cases/.
