An explosion can happen in an instant, but its effects can be long lasting. Whether you are a contractor, an engineer, an ironworker, an electrician, a plumber, or other worker at a construction site, you could suffer a serious injury during an explosion. In some tragic cases, an explosion can also lead to fatalities.
If you suffered an injury or lost a loved one in a construction site explosion, turn to the legal team at The Jasmer Law Firm. We recently handled a case involving a man who suffered burns over 95 percent of his body in a propane gas explosion. In that case, we secured a $30 million settlement for our client.
We can answer your questions about construction accidents in the Chicago area, and we can provide you with the advice and support you need to feel confident about your case.
Causes of Explosions
There are many ways an explosion can occur on a work site, including:
- Gas and fuel leaks in a vehicle, heavy equipment or a power tool
- Disabled safety features on a fuel tank, air tank or other piece of equipment
- Exposed electrical wires
- Defective machinery or equipment
- Exposed underground gas lines
If safety procedures are not followed, an injury can also result from a controlled blast.
We understand the significant toll burns, scars and other explosion injuries can have on your life. No matter the cause of your injuries, our legal team will investigate your claim, build your case and help you pursue compensation from those responsible for your injuries.
