Larimer County Explosion Injury Lawyers

Larimer County Explosion Injury Lawyers

Workers’ Compensation Attorneys in Fort Collins for Burn Victims

At Hoggatt Law Office, P.C., we understand that employees from a variety of different industries may be regularly exposed to the danger of injuries caused by fires or explosions. If you have been injured in an explosion or a fire-related accident at work, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. In some cases, you may even be entitled to additional compensation from the party or parties responsible for the incident. Our skilled attorneys will help you explore your available options and assist you in getting the benefits you deserve.

Fires and Explosions in the Oil, Gas, and Construction Industries

The oil and gas industry is an important part of Colorado’s economy. Recent estimates suggest that the industry is responsible for nearly a quarter of million jobs around the state. This represents more than 6 percent of the state’s entire labor force. The processes of extraction, refining, and distribution are dangerous. Despite strict safety protocols, fires and explosions can and do occur, and many workers are seriously injured as a result.

Fires and explosions are also not uncommon in the construction industry. Flammable chemicals, explosives, and other combustible materials place construction workers at risk every day. A single stray spark or an electrical arc could cause an explosion that injures dozens of workers in just a few moments.

Getting the Benefits You Deserve in Northern Colorado

According to federal statistics, fire and explosions cause about 200 deaths and 5,000 injuries across all industries every year. Common injuries include:

  • Severe burns;
  • Loss of limbs or extremities;
  • Permanent scarring; and
  • Inhalation of smoke and other hazardous fumes.

Burn victims may require ongoing medical care, including physical and occupational therapy. Some may also require skin grafts to mitigate the damage caused by the fire.

Regardless of how the fires or explosions occurred, workers who suffer injuries in the course of their employment are usually eligible for benefits under the Colorado workers’ compensation system. Unfortunately, obtaining such benefits is often more difficult than it should be.
