Man Suffers Serious Work Injury in Explosion

Law Offices of James M. Curran

In spite of the many safety precautions in place at most New Jersey businesses these days, an unexpected accident could still happen. Whether caused by a simple mistake or other issue, such an accident could result in a serious work injury. A man in another state was recently injured in an explosion that occurred while he was on the job.

The man is employed at a metals recycling business. He was cutting scrap metal at the time of the accident. As he worked, the vapors from a nearby fuel tank ignited and sparked an explosion. Though the worker suffered injuries, officials stated that the building where the explosion took place was not damaged. It is likely that the incident will be further investigated.

The local fire department responded to the incident. The fire chief reported that the worker was severely injured. He is said to have received second and third degree burns on his legs, back and on the side of his face. His current condition is unknown at this time. No other employees were injured.

When workers are injured on the job, they often choose to file workers’ compensation claims to assist in the aftermath of the accident. When successful, this type of claim can provide monetary benefits that can be used to help pay for medical bills or cover any lost wages and other related expenses. Anyone who has suffered a work injury could contact an experienced New Jersey workers’ compensation attorney for more information and to receive assistance in filing such claims.
