There are many dangers to workers at construction sites. One danger that workers face is the risk of a fire or explosion that can leave them seriously injured. When workers are injured, they deserve workers’ compensation benefits. The experienced workers’ compensation attorneys at Shebell & Shebell, LLC fight to help them get all the benefits they deserve.

On many construction sites, workers work with or near potential sources of fire or explosion. These include:
- Flammable and combustible chemicals
- Pressurized containers
- Heat-powered tools (such as flame torches, soldering irons and brazing torches)
- Electrical circuits
When there’s a fire or explosion, workers can be seriously hurt. Burn injuries are common, but they can also suffer other injuries. The force of an explosion can throw them onto the ground, or they could be hit by flying debris. They may suffer broken bones and internal injuries. If they were close to an explosion, they may suffer hearing or vision loss.
This type of construction accident can leave workers unable to return to work for quite some time. They may need surgery and hospitalization. They may need physical therapy and medication. There may be months of follow-up medical visits. Recovery can take months or longer. Some workers are left with a permanent disability.
Our Work Injury Attorneys Can Help You Navigate The Process
The workers’ compensation system is supposed to help injured workers by paying for reasonable and necessary medical treatment and providing partial lost wages while they are out of work. Employers and insurance companies know there is a lot of money at stake, however, so they routinely try to minimize claims.
That’s why you need an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to help you get the benefits you need and deserve. Our firm has been helping injured workers for generations. We know the tactics that employers and insurance companies use. We know how to fight back by building strong cases.
Our attorneys can guide you through every step of the workers’ compensation claims process. If your claim is denied, we help you pursue appeals to the state Division of Workers’ Compensation. We argue your case in front of a workers’ compensation judge and provide evidence to help you move your claim forward.
Many times, insurance companies insist that you undergo an independent medical examination (IME) with a doctor of their choosing. Many of these doctors don’t necessarily have your best interests in mind. We help you prepare for the examination by making sure the doctor has all the information needed to make a diagnosis.
