Explosion Injury

Everyone knows from a young age that fire is hot. When we get older and start to work, the lesson does not change. However, the severity of the consequences of being burned by a fire or explosion may be far greater.

Fires and explosions are a frequent and often severe type of Florida work accident injury. Nearly 200 people are killed in a work-related fire or explosion each year, accounting for nearly 3 percent of these types of fatalities.

When a fire or explosion accident happens on-the-job site, whether you work on a construction site, in a factory, with telephone or utility wires, in a high-rise hotel or driving an oil truck, the injuries can be severe. These can include:

  • Severe burns
  • Shock injuries
  • Smoke inhalation
  • Heat inhalation
  • Disfigurement
  • Death

The ongoing costs of a work-related fire or explosion can be even greater than the initial shock. You may have medical bills in the tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars, permanent losses and disabilities, significant emotional scars and even unrelenting pain and suffering.

If someone else was responsible for the fire or explosion, such as a building owner, boss or another negligent driver on the road, these consequences can be that much more difficult to deal with. You may feel like you have been cheated or conspired against.

If this is the case, we strongly urge you to contact a today. An experienced attorney may be able to help you recover damages from the accident, earning financial compensation for your present and future costs.
