Workers' Compensation Assistance from Talented Wilmington Lawyers

Serving explosion and fire victims throughout North Carolina

If you are a construction worker who has been injured by an explosion or fire on the job, workers' compensation should cover your medical costs and lost wages. But obtaining workers' comp in Wilmington or anywhere else in North Carolina isn’t easy. We at Lanier Law Group, P.A. know how to navigate the worker's comp system, and we are eager to help you with your case.

Causes of fires and explosions

Employees throughout North Carolina are entitled to workers' compensation if they can prove that they were injured on the job. After suffering a work-related injury, your priority is to get better — not to figure out legal procedures and the reasons your claim may be denied. At Lanier Law Group, P.A., we handle cases just like yours on a regular basis. With 11 offices across the state, we can assist you with workers' compensation claims in Raleigh, Greensboro or anywhere else in North Carolina.

We see many clients who have been injured by fires and explosions caused by:

  • Hazardous chemicals: Some of the chemicals used at construction sites in Wilmington and across the state are explosive or flammable. If these substances are not used responsibly, they can cause catastrophic injuries to workers.
  • Faulty electrical wiring: Having a trained and experienced electrician install wiring is essential to preventing an electrical fire. If you are injured because of faulty electrical wiring in a construction site, contact a skilled workers' compensation attorney in the Charlotte office.
  • Controlled explosives: Explosives are commonly used in the construction industry. They can maim and kill workers and pedestrians, however, if the site is not properly secured.
  • Gas leaks: Gas leaks can be hard to detect. If left unnoticed for even a short time, a gas leak can cause an explosion, fire or building collapse.

Our firms - from Burlington to Wilmington and everywhere in between - provide professional North Carolina workers' compensation guidance to anyone who is injured on the job. Let us help you get your life back on track. If Wilmington is too far to travel, we can help you file for workers' compensation in Fayetteville, Charlotte or even Durham.
