There is always an inherent risk for workers who work with flammable materials that an accident can occur. For those workers’ safety, there have been many regulations implemented throughout the U.S. to reduce the risk of injury as much as possible. However, if a company fails to keep their facilities adequately equipped and all those safety measures are not kept up with, and you are burned or otherwise injured in an explosion, you may be entitled to money compensation for those injuries. The expert explosion accident attorney specialists and burn injury lawyer experts at the Law Offices of Gilbert R. Hoy, Jr. and Affiliates have recovered millions in damages for our clients.
One worker was injured late Friday after an explosion and fire ignited at a Windsor, Colorado oil and gas site. Residents in the area felt and heard the blast just before 9:00 p.m., and first responders from the County Sheriff’s Office, Windsor Severance Fire Rescue and other area fire departments rushed to the scene. The injured worker was hospitalized, but authorities did not release other information about the person’s injuries or condition. The oil company was not publicly identified as of Friday night, but crews gathered and worked with the company to make a plan of attack to fight the fire. The company had evacuated the site after the explosion, but it was unclear how many workers were on-site at the time of the explosion.
