Construction and industrial explosions cause devastating injuries to workers and people who live on adjacent properties. Even though companies are required to follow state and federal safety regulations to reduce the risk of explosions, negligence can still lead to catastrophic events. As the victim of an explosion, you may be entitled to full compensation for everything you have lost in the accident.
At Cavanagh Law Group in Chicago, our lawyers will thoroughly investigate the explosion to determine every possible claim that you may have. For example, workers who are injured on the job are entitled to benefits from workers' compensation. However, workers' compensation benefits are limited and will not cover all of your damages. You may have other options, including the filing of a personal injury lawsuit against the party or parties who were responsible for the explosion. Contact us for a free case evaluation with a lawyer.
