Gas Leak, Fire & Explosion Accident Lawyers

Orange County Attorneys Helping Local Construction Workers

For new construction projects and jobs on industrial sites, the risk of a gas leak, fire, or explosion can be inordinately high compared to other construction jobs. Even with the utmost safety and care around the construction site, something can go wrong in the blink of an eye, resulting in severe injuries and possibly deaths. It is only right that construction workers who have been injured in a gas leak, fire, or explosion get the workers’ compensation benefits they need to recover as best they can.

Alvandi Law Group, P.C. in Orange County would be honored to help you explore your legal options after being hurt on a construction site by a gas leak, fire, or explosion. Whether someone’s negligence caused the accident or it was caused by unpredictable circumstances should not matter because workers’ comp is a no-fault system. However, employers and insurers can sometimes interfere with justified claims just to try to save money. Our team of attorneys can help you with filings, denials, and lawsuits – whatever is needed to get you the benefits you need and deserve.

Call (800) 980-6905 or contact us online to learn more about your workers’ compensation claim.

Gas Leak Accidents on Construction Sites

When a gas line is being worked on at a construction site, workers and supervisors alike need to be cautious about potential gas leaks. Workers can be severely injured by a gas leak that goes undetected at first due to the subtle odor of gas. Inhaling too much gas can cause carbon monoxide poisoning, which can cause short-term issues like nausea and vomiting, as well as more severe issues like organ damage, brain damage, and death.

Gas leaks on construction sites can be caused by:

  • Workers striking a gas line with tools or excavators
  • Turning on the gas main too soon
  • Defective valves in the gas lines

Fire & Explosion Accidents on Construction Sites

Construction workers will be at risk of suffering severe burn injuries if there is a fire or explosion caused by an accident. Hazardous substances, electrical faults, and gas leaks are common sources of fires on construction sites, as are compressed gases that have been stored incorrectly. Depending on what is ignited, the fire could first begin with a violent explosion that sends devastating concussive shockwaves throughout the area.

Explosions and fires can cause the following injuries and more:

  • Burns
  • Concussions
  • Broken bones

Fight for Full Benefits After a Fire or Gas Leak Accident

Workers’ compensation benefits should pay for the entirety of your medical expenses and could provide for some of your missed wages.
