Fuel Tank Explosion Injures Father and Son

download (85)When a workplace accident occurs, the first priority is to take care of the situation and make sure the workers are okay. The second one is to make a call to the insurance company to make a claim. After a major accident, a business’ livelihood could hinge completely on what comes out in the investigation. If there’s not enough money, it could spell the end of the business.

Workplace accidents can happen at any time. One recent story from Conover involves a father and son team that was working on a fuel tank. They were trying to cut it open when residual vapors inside the tank caused an explosion. The father suffered burns on 80% on his body and his son was also taken to the hospital for injuries.

The explosion also caused a fire that burned down a garage. The heat was so intense that two firefighters had to be sent to the hospital for heat exhaustion.

What will the insurance company say in this case? Will they try to claim that the injured parties didn’t follow proper procedures before cutting the tank and deny them coverage? That sort of information doesn’t normally hit the news wires, but it does happen. Don’t let insurance companies deny you the coverage you need. If you’ve been injured in a workplace accident, call the skilled attorneys of Auger & Auger. We can help.
