April 19, 2024

New Orleans, LA (June 26, 2021) – A lineman from Bay St. Louis was critically injured when he received an electric shock while he was working in a bucket truck on Wednesday, June 23rd.  

28-year-old Cayce Seal is being hospitalized in New Orleans where doctors are attempting to treat his life-threatening injuries.

Officials said that Seal endured a near-fatal electrical shock. His crew noticed immediately and worked to get him out of his bucket and began CPR.

The shock caused Cayce’s heart to stop beating, but he was revived on the way to University Hospital in New Orleans. He is listed in critical, but stable condition and is being kept sedated.

Our thoughts are with Cayce Seal. We hope for his full recovery.

The main advantage of a personal injury lawsuit is that it enables victims to collect financial compensation for pain and suffering, a non-economic benefit not offered under worker’s compensation. By filing a claim of personal injury, victims can pursue financial compensation for all of their losses, including things like missed wages, reduced earning potential, medical expenses, future medical costs, permanent disability, pain and suffering, decreased quality of life, and many more.
