North Carolina Fire & Explosion Injury Lawyers
Representing Severely Injured Workers throughout the State
If you have been injured by an explosion or fire on the job, workers' compensation should cover your medical costs and lost wages. But obtaining workers' comp isn’t always easy. Additionally, workers’ compensation may only cover some of your damages; it is designed to cover your medical expenses and lost wages but not your pain and suffering.
We at Lanier Law Group know how to navigate the North Carolina worker's compensation system, and we are eager to help you with your case. In addition to workers’ comp, we can help you seek compensation through a third-party workplace accident claim, if appropriate.

Common Causes of Work-Related Fires & Explosions
In most cases, 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.
We see many clients who have been injured by fires and explosions caused by:
- Hazardous chemicals: Some of the chemicals used at construction sites and other places of work 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 at your work, we can help you seek fair compensation.
- 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.
At Lanier Law Group, we provide professional legal guidance for anyone who was injured on the job or lost a loved one in a work-related accident. Let us help you get your life back on track.
