Common Causes of Construction-Related Burn Injuries
Construction sites are rife with the fire-related dangers, although these are typically mitigated by safety procedures and practices. Unfortunately, workers or employers sometimes fail to uphold these safety standards and fire accidents may occur. The following are the most common causes of burn injuries that result from safety procedure negligence:
- Fires / explosions
- Failure to have fire safety equipment
- Failure to uphold safety codes
- Exposure to toxic chemicals / chemical burns
- Mechanical / electrical malfunctions
All of these situations might cause a fire or a burn injury to occur, leaving many with serious physical injuries and the high medical costs that accompany such injuries. However, Massachusetts burn victims may have the ability to fight for financial compensation with the help of an experienced personal injury attorney.
