Helping People After An Industrial Accident Or Explosion

Industrial accidents cause catastrophic injuries and death to California factory and industrial workers. A worker will receive worker compensation benefits, but these benefits do not provide adequate compensation for severe injuries, disability or death. The lawyers at the Van Blois Law Firm are skilled in locating responsible third parties to obtain benefits far greater that the worker compensation benefit.

In 2014, more than 4,800 people suffered fatal work injuries, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Some of the most severe on the job injuries occur when machine operators are injured by industrial equipment. When a machine presents a hazard that cannot be eliminated, the appropriate action is to guard against the hazard and to warn of the danger. All too often machines are unguarded, inadequately guarded or the wrong type of guard is used. Failure to safely guard against hazards can cause amputations, lacerations, crush injuries and death.

Explosions can cause severe burn injuries and other severe and often fatal injuries. Explosions can occur at refineries, chemical plants, construction sites, or whenever there is a gas or oil leak. The cause of explosions is often a result of negligence including defective gas lines, improper maintenance, careless procedures and inadequate training.

Propane gas can be especially dangerous and volatile.
