Explosion Injures Workers

It is California law that employers make sure that their employees are protected from the risk of explosions at work.

Explosions at work can occur for several reasons, including a chemical handling accident or perhaps a worker investigating a gas leak. An explosion can cause both minor and major injuries that affect the worker's life.

Recently, two men were working on high-voltage power lines when an underground electrical vault exploded, leaving the workers severely injured.

According to reports, a fire caused the explosion. The men were pulled out by other workers, treated by paramedics called to the scene and then transported to a nearby hospital. One man suffered burns to the side of his face; the other suffered burns to his back.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

I wish the two injured workers a complete and speedy recovery.

If you or a loved one has been seriously injured in a workplace explosion or fire, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering and lost wages. Although your workers' compensation 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 claim against that company and pursue addition compensation. Seek the guidance of a personal injury & accident lawyers.
