BLASTING AND EXPLOSIONS LAWYER
Serious or life threatening injuries can result due to chemical plant, refinery, oil and gas, and other workplace explosions. These explosions can be the result of defective machinery, or negligence on the part of the plant or third party contractors. If machinery is not properly operated or maintained then machines can become defective and such explosions can occur. In chemical plant and other types of explosions the violation of OSHA regulations can not only cause the catastrophe but actually increase the intensity of it when it occurs. Our lawyers can evaluate your injuries and other damages resulting from an explosion or blasting in your area and have the ability to have our consultation over the phone or in person in one of our locations at Huntville, Montgomery, Anniston, or Birmingham.
A burn injury due to an industrial explosion is one of the most painful injuries that one can survive. If you receive burn injuries due to an industrial explosion then we will work to get you compensated other than just workers’ compensation. You may be entitled to such damages as pain and suffering, lost wages, and mental anguish.
In the case of railroad explosions, railroad employees are protected under the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) which provides that you receive full compensation for your work injuries. You should begin to take action immediately if you are injured on the job, so that your attorney can begin gathering discovery right away to prove the negligence of the railroad owner and operator.
If you have been injured as a result of an industrial explosion then call our blasting and explosion lawyers today for a consultation.
