Construction sites have a high potential for fires and explosions. There are plenty of exposed wires, open gas lines and propane along with power tools and many workers all working at once to complete a project. If you are a construction worker who has been injured because of a fire or explosion, you may be facing a slew of questions regarding your future and compensation. If you are a victim of a construction accident, or know someone who has been involved in an accident, you should contact Hecht Kleeger & Damashek, P.C., today.
There are many risks that can occur when working with harsh chemicals, welding equipment and electrical equipment. Many construction sites are exposed to the weather conditions as well, causing electrocution hazards and making it dangerous to operate electric equipment outside. Sometimes it is necessary to use chemicals that may combust and cause an explosion. If you are lucky enough to walk away from a severe fire or explosion, you may still be suffering from burns, scarring and high medical bills to cover your injuries. You deserve compensation, and our New York City personal injury attorneys are committed to helping you get it.
If you are experiencing debilitating injuries following a fire or explosion, it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as possible. Did your accidents occur while you were on the clock?
