Construction And Workplace Explosions And Fires
There are many dangers in construction work, which is one of the most dangerous occupations in this country. But with all the dangers that can be expected in the workplace, very few workers and their families expect to be injured or killed by explosions.
However, explosions are more common on construction and other work sites than might be expected. Explosions are not only common on construction sites, but they are also among the most catastrophic and often fatal accidents. At Bashein & Bashein Company, L.P.A., our lawyers represent construction accident victims and their families in personal injury and wrongful death claims.
Our Cleveland, Ohio, attorneys take our construction and other workplace accident cases seriously. We provide sound counsel, marked with compassion and professionalism, and we fight aggressively to help our clients obtain the best compensation awards possible.
Construction and worksite explosions and fires can be caused by:
- Gas leaks
- Combustible cleaning solvents
- Combustible dust
- Hot work
- Flammable liquids and gases
- Faulty equipment and machinery
- Electrical hazards
- Mechanical sparking
Explosions can cause the collapse of buildings, and direct contact with explosions can result in serious burn injuries.
Our attorneys will explore the causes of the accident and work to get you a just settlement or verdict so you can move on with your life.
