What Causes Chemical and Other Explosions?
Negligence can be a major cause of explosions in industrial plants and at construction sites. Such negligence can occur because of managerial incompetence, poor maintenance practices, or defective equipment. Whatever the cause, explosions can cause serious or fatal injuries to the workers who experience them.
There are a number of accidents at a workplace and outside of it that might lead to an explosion such as motorcycle, truck, or car accident; defective wiring; defective products including welding torches and other hand tools; gas leaks in domestic and industrial settings; inadvertently mixing explosive chemicals; and flammable dust being in a highly charged atmosphere.
Explosion Injuries and Wrongful Death Attorney
Explosion accidents not only put workers at risk of severe burn injuries and chemical exposure, but they can also have a detrimental impact on the area surrounding the explosion. Industrial explosions have affected multiple industries including food processing, chemical, pharmaceutical, petrochemical, brewing, and similar product manufacturing and distribution businesses.
Injuries sustained from an explosion can consist of burns, spinal cord damage, and brain injuries. Wrongful death cases are also a possibility if a loved one died due to a fatal workplace explosion. Victims of explosions as well as the loved ones of an individual who died due to an explosion, deserve compensation for their losses and need the help of our experienced work injury attorneys in Orange County.
