Expert Answer:

An electrical injury is damage to the skin or internal organs when a person comes into direct contact with an electrical current.

Electric current can cause injury in three ways:

  • Cardiac arrest due to the electrical effect on the heart
  • Muscle, nerve, and tissue destruction from a current passing through the body
  • Thermal burns from contact with the electrical source
