Insurance Companies Don't Play Fair. Don't Do This Alone.

Explosion and Fire Accidents

No fee unless we win
we work hard for you

Although many explosions and fires are preventable, they are one of the most prevalent in the workplace. This is particularly true in factories, plants, and refineries. Another workplace that is high on the list for these types of fires is barges. This is because of the presence of chemicals that are highly flammable. There are many guidelines, rules, and regulations in place for the safe handling of chemicals. However, accidents do occur.

What to do After an Accident

If you are injured in an explosions or fire, of course the first thing you should do is get treated for your injuries. While you may think that there will be no problem getting compensated for your injuries, this is not always true. Your employer has insurance and therefore an insurance representative. It is likely they will be one of the first people you hear from after your accident.

Do not give them a statement about the accident and do not sign anything. You could be signing away your rights for compensation. Keep in mind that insurance or company representatives have the best interests of the company in mind. They are not on your side..

Some of the costs associated with explosions and fire accidents include:

  • Medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Changes in lifestyle
  • Property damages
  • Punitive damages

The best thing to do is to find an attorney to help protect your rights after an accident. A lawyer can help determine what compensation you are entitled to and represent you; not your employer and not the insurance company.

Explosions and fires are part of the personal injury covered by premises liability. If your injury was someplace else other than work it is still an injury and the liability exists if negligence was a contributing factor. Even if you are not sure you should contact an attorney.

How can an Attorney Help?

According to the National Fire Protection Association there were 1,345,500 reported fires in 2015. Although not all were caused by negligence, an attorney can investigate the premises where the fire occurred and look for evidence. They are experienced in knowing what to look for and can hire experts who can help.

The amount of compensation that you are entitled to will be determined by your attorney. They will look at the severity of your injuries and the medical care you have received and may continue to need. They also consider the time you have missed from work and if your injuries have changed your lifestyle.

An experienced personal injury attorney knows how to present the proof to substantiate your claim for compensation. They will present the case by showing which rules and regulations were violated, why the accident was caused by negligence, and the problems you are having as a result of the injury.

In addition to providing proof of the negligence, an experienced attorney works to uncover other things that can bolster your case. Did your employer have several violations of rules and regulations and have they been fined by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in the past? What is their rate of past on-the-job injuries and accidents? Are there other employees who know about the unsafe working conditions or practices that could lead to accidents? All of these questions are important in proving that you deserve compensation for your injuries.

Explosions and fires are not unique to places of employment. You can be injured on someone’s property, in your own home, while staying in a hotel, or while visiting a business. Sometimes the liability for the accident is not one person or company. It can be a shared liability. Regardless of where the accident occurs, you should seek the expertise of a personal injury lawyer to protect your rights.
