Work Related Explosion Accidents
Workers' Compensation Claims and Injuries from Explosions
Explosions can occur at any worksite where there might be some type of chemicals being used, fuel products or volatile substances. When these occur, anyone near them can be severely injured, resulting in catastrophic injuries. When you or a loved one has been injured in a work related explosion accident, contact a San Diego workers' compensation lawyer to discuss the legal step you should take to protect your right to compensation.
Explosions will normally cause a great deal of damage to a surrounding area, possibly even injuring workers who are not in the immediate area. Certain professions carry a higher risk of being in explosion accidents, such as those who work with toxic fumes in factories, manufacturers of compressed gas or chemicals and underground sewer or cable repair workers. Due to their severity, an explosion can cause such injuries as broken bones, head, neck and back injuries, burns, lacerations and sometimes result in death. In order to obtain the maximum compensation for your injuries, consulting with an attorney at the Pacific Attorney Group is essential. Although your workers' comp coverage will cover your medical bills and part of your salary, if it can be shown that a third party was negligent and caused the explosion, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit against that company and pursue additional compensation, such as your full lost wages as well as pain and suffering.
Help With Your Workers' Comp Claim
As injuries from this type of accident can be quite severe and may require extensive medical care, it becomes vital to have your own legal counsel working for you and ensuring you receive the medical attention you deserve. Nothing could be worse than being forced to return to work by the workers' comp insurance company when you are not fully recovered, or being denied certain medical procedures that are vital to your health. With over 35 years of experience, we are committed to providing you with the personal attention you deserve.
