Hammering nails into a wall

This might be a silly question:

When hammering nails into a wall in order to hang a painting, is there a chance of hitting an electrical cable and getting electrocuted? If so, how can it be avoided?

    Don't hit an electric cable? :p

    Seriously, cables tend to go directly up from any socket, light or plug. So don't bang nails in there. Unless you want to buy a detector :no:
