Five suffer workplace injuries after underground explosion

There are some jobs in California and across the nation that are inherently dangerous. When a worker is injured on the job, they may have medical costs, lost time on the job and other financial issues to contend with. While workers' compensation benefits are available for workers, it is always a smart decision to have legal assistance to make sure the maximum amount is received.

Five workers were taken to the hospital after suffering injuries in an explosion in an electrical vault located underground. Two men were in the vault at the time of the explosion and had to be rescued. The other three men were treated for burns. It is not known why the explosion occurred and the company is investigating.

For people who suffer burns on the job, these injuries can range in severity. Depending on how significant the burns are, the person might need surgery, need time off work, have major medical expenses, and could be forced to find a different occupation.

There are many steps that must be taken to receive workers' compensation benefits, including filling out the necessary forms in a timely fashion and getting all the medical information from treating physicians. Knowing whether the accident happened because of an unsafe working environment, mistakes on the part of the employer, a failure to adhere to safety protocol and other possibilities is critical. To ensure that the investigation is comprehensive and the worker receives all they are entitled to after suffering from workplace injuries, legal assistance is imperative. Calling for advice and guidance is key.
