Hunting for a personal injury lawyer in Chopwell – getting a specialist
There are specialist personal injury lawyers at Accident Advice Helpline who can deal with all the complexities that are involved in fire and explosion accidents. This type of incident is often reported from wood-working premises (workshops). Wood dust is very flammable and if it is ignited it can cause a flash fire. However, if it is confined within an area things can get even more serious. The pressure can build up and an explosion can take place. The severity of the explosion will depend on:
- The type of wood dust
- The concentration of wood dust
- The size of each of the wood dust particles
- The moisture content of the dust
- The source of the ignition
- The strength of the enclosure
Wood dust clouds that have a greater volume tend to cause more widespread effects – this may mean that more employees are hurt and more people have to start personal injury compensation claims. Problems have occurred where dust has escaped from a collection system. There has obviously been at attempt to remove the dust but it has not been working properly and so the wood dust has continued to present a hazard. This can also be the cause of multiple explosions which can cause severe injuries to many members of the workforce. It happens when an initial explosion (perhaps inside the extraction system) stirs up dust that has settled in other areas of the workshop and these are then ignited by burning particles from the first explosion which then cause secondary explosions – the effect can be catastrophic and lead to the total destruction of the workshop, multiple casualties and even deaths. The secondary explosions can end up being more serious than the original one. Accident Advice Helpline lawyers can assist you to make a compensation claim for the serious and life-changing injuries that you may have suffered in this sort of incident.
