Common Issues in Plant Explosion Claims
Frequently, employers know about dangerous plant conditions, yet they require employees to work there anyway. In these situations, additional compensation might be available. Workers’ compensation is usually not the exclusive remedy for job injuries if the employer was reckless.
Additionally, many of these victims have pre-existing medical conditions which exacerbate their job injuries. Generally, full compensation is available in these cases. A Kona plant explosion lawyer must simply establish that the work injury made the pre-existing condition worse, as opposed to the other way around.
How Kona Injury Lawyers Obtain Compensation
When workers sustain trauma injuries on the job, workers’ compensation usually compensates them for their economic losses, including:
- Lost Wages: If the victim is temporarily disabled, workers’ compensation usually pays two-thirds of the victim’s average weekly wage until s/he returns to work. If the victim is permanently disabled, a lump sum payment might be available.
- Medical Expenses: This category usually includes all medical bills, from the first moment of emergency care to the last day of physical therapy. Ancillary expenses, such as transportation and medical devices, might be covered as well.
These benefits are also available for victims who suffer from occupational diseases, such as hearing loss or respiratory problems.
Since workers’ compensation is no-fault insurance, there is no need to prove fault or even negligence. Therefore, a Kona plant explosion lawyer often settles these claims out of court and on victim-friendly terms.
