EXPLOSION ACCIDENT

Explosion Accident Injury Attorney, Los Angeles

Explosion injuries are amongst the most catastrophic and debilitating occupational injuries. There are several groupings related to this category. There are chemical explosions which required some type of gas leak and a spark. These most commonly happen on oil rigs, fuel tanks, automobiles, stoves and fertilizer manufacturing, pipelines and tanks and may involve propane or petroleum. When working with unstable gasses such as Chlorine, Ammonium, Nitrogen, Fluorine, Nitroglycerin and others the upmost care and safety must be taken by employer and employee. Electrical explosions happen when high currents of electricity are being used. Secondary explosions occur when debris from an explosion is sent flying at high speeds throughout the area. Tertiary explosions are when an employee is physically thrown from the blast. Injuries such as head and neck trauma, broken bones and burns can ensue. Work-related explosion accidents are uncommon, but they can happen, and when they do, those involved can sustain catastrophic injuries; in some cases explosion accidents can even result in death. If you or a loved one has been involved in an explosion that took place at work, you deserve to be compensated for your pain and suffering. The Law Offices of Jacob O Partiyeli, a leading Los Angeles workers’ compensation law firm, has experience handling complex work-related explosion cases, such as industrial accidents and gas leaks, and works side by side with experts in the field. We will advocate on your behalf so you can collect the full benefits, present and future, that you are entitled to.
Often, explosion accidents are truly just that: accidents; there was no way to avoid them. However, sometimes, explosions are the result of sheer negligence. For example, an employer may have failed to adhere to safety codes, or a fellow employee may have disregarded regulations. Whether the accident was a real mistake or it was the result of someone else’s negligence, when an explosion happens at work, anyone injured is entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

Effects of Explosion Accidents

Anyone who is in the vicinity when an explosion occurs can sustain severe injuries. These injuries can include:
• Second and third degree burns
• Asphyxiation
• Lung damage as a result of smoke inhalation
• Cardiovascular damage
• Disfigurement

In the most severe cases, work-related explosion accidents can even cause death, leaving the families with emotional distress, burial expenses, loss of future wages, inheritance and consortium.
Surviving family members are also entitled to benefits if their loved one has perished as a result of a workplace injury.
