What Is an Electrocution versus an Electric Shock?

Exposure to electricity can cause injury (electrical shock) or death (electrocution). In other words, fatal electrical injuries are referred to as electrocutions while survivable trauma is generally described as an electrical injury.

What Are the Different Types of Electrical Injuries?

Electrical injuries are generally classified as:
  • 1

    Flame injuries:

    These result from clothing catching fire due to contact with some type of electrical source. An electrical current may or may not pass through the body when flame injuries occur.
  • 2

    Flash injuries:

    Fast, sharp, and intense, these electrical injuries may leave behind surface burns. However, an electrical current won’t flow through the body with flash injuries.
  • 3

    Lightning injuries:

    High-voltage electricity will pass through the body with lightning injuries, causing acute shocks and possibly severe damage.
  • 4

    “True” injuries:

    If an electrical current can enter and exit an individual, effectively making someone part of the electrical “circuit,” the damage can extend throughout the body.
Some examples of these electrical injuries include (and are not limited to):
It’s important to note that not all cases of fatal electrical shocks will occur on the spot. While exposure to high-voltage electricity can immediately electrocute people, some injuries will prove fatal in the days or weeks following the exposure.
