Causes of Explosion & Burn Injuries on Construction Sites
Construction sites rely on a number of tools that have the potential to create explosions and serious burns. Additionally, construction sites incorporate or work around potentially flammable or volatile risks. All of these factors work together to create a risk that needs to be taken seriously. A backhoe may strike an unmarked gas pipeline, for example, or a welding torch may ignite gas from a leaking propane tank.
Some of the hazards that can lead to explosions or fires on a construction site include:
- Welding sparks
- Natural gas pipelines
- Propane tanks
- Incomplete electrical systems
Burn injuries are incredibly damaging and require specialized medical care. Serious burns can create ongoing health issues for years to come. Scarring and disfigurement can impact a person’s emotional health and self-esteem. Plastic surgery may be required to help an injured person reclaim the life they led before the accident.
Given that the injuries from an explosion are often fatal or catastrophic, it is imperative that you secure representation who understands how to ensure that you receive the full compensation you deserve.
We can help you obtain compensation for:
- All past and future medical expenses
- Lost wages/loss of earning capacity
- Pain and suffering
- Other relevant expenses
Third-Party & Workers’ Compensation Claims
Our firm helps those who have been injured in explosions that may have been caused by third parties such as a subcontractor or some other party as well as those who are pursuing workers’ compensation claims. If your injury was caused by a party other than your employer, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. You may even be able to file both a workers’ compensation claim and a third-party lawsuit. Please talk to an attorney to learn more about which legal options are best for you and your unique situation.
