Fire and explosion accidents, in addition to burn injuries, may cause broken bones, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, even wrongful death in the most tragic cases. The medical treatment for these injuries may be expensive and painful, including reconstructive surgery. Burn victims may also sustain significant emotional damage due to disfigurement and scarring, as well as the extreme pain associated with their injuries.
Why Should I Hire an Attorney after a Fire at Work, at Home or at a Construction Accident?
Burns and explosions may happen on construction sites, industrial workplaces, apartment complexes, homes and other places. These accidents can be caused by:
- Improperly installed furnaces
- Gas mains and propane tanks
- Automobile fires
- Electrical fires
- Other fires
When these types of accidents are the result of negligence, it is important for victims to pursue the maximum level of compensation allowed by the law. For residential homeowners, this may require negotiation with an insurance company or investigation into a defective product that caused the fire.
Was there a Construction Accident Fire or Explosion?
On job sites such as construction sites, industrial work sites, warehouses and others, it is important for proper safety to be kept at all times. This is especially the case when hazardous chemicals are involved. When safety is not kept as a main priority, explosions and fires may occur that cause catastrophic and fatal injuries to workers and others on the property.
