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.

At Lanier Law Group, we handle cases just like yours on a regular basis. With multiple offices across the state, we can assist you with your workers' compensation or personal injury claim.

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.

    "20 out of 10 stars."
    There are times in your life you are so hurt and feel life has a grudge against you. Nothing in your life is going right. I lost the most important person in my life to death, of which I knew mistakes were made because I witnessed it with my own eyes. When you contact a law group you most of the time get all business and a matter of fact conversation. I want all to know that from the first phone call they listened to my lengthy story, sobbing most of the time with so much compassion. They never made any promises but offered assurances that no stone would be unturned. They fulfilled every word they said. They restored faith that I had lost. Until you are in a position like mine you can never know how invaluable Lanier Law Group is. They were wonderful while maintaining their professionalism. They treated me like a family member. They really do care about their clients. But most of all they are the best at what they do. I worked in the court system for years so I knew how attorneys and law firms basically operated. Understanding the law and it's interpretation is the ultimate key to winning any case. Also know that if an attorney/attorneys study and review your case and know that you don't have a chance in a court of law and are big enough to tell you that instead of giving you false hope, you then my friend have a group with valuable shared values. I have so much respect for everyone in this Law Group. I recommend Lanier Law Group, P.A. to anyone who needs representation, they are in your corner. 20 out of 10 stars.

    "Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members"
    I started working with Lanier Law Group in 2020 on my Social Security Disability case. They from start to finish were awesome. My case manager Janet Hanks and attorney, Ashley Sappenfield were always available to answer all my questions. I did not have to do much but sit back and let them handle whatever was needed. My case took too long (2 years) and if I did not have Janet and Ashley My case would still not be approved. I would recommend Lanier to anyone to get the job done and approved. Do not go to another firm with your case, who promise the world and do not see it to completion and do not think another firms would have worked as hard as they did on my case. Lanier Law Group will always be the choice for me and all my family members to handle any cases of this type and other legal services they provide. They went above and beyond!

    "So thankful for your expertise and professionalism"
    Mrs. Gonzalez did an awesome job of explaining everything in detail and keeping me informed on the status of my case. Despite poor customer service with the insurance company, Mrs. Gonzalez was able to fix what they could not. Mrs. Gonzalez was very helpful with helping me understand things that I was not aware of when dealing with insurance claims. I am so thankful for her expertise and professionalism.
