Our plant accident lawyers have filed suit on behalf of a Louisiana plant worker who was severely burned when he was instructed to enter a room filled with flammable gas. A flash fire enveloped his body as soon as he opened the door, and he suffered burns across his torso, legs, arms, and neck.
There must be safeguards in place to protect workers in potentially dangerous situations, and when there are, companies must pay attention to these warnings. In the case of our client, the sensor that is supposed to signal a high potential of fire was indicating trouble, but his employers ignored the warnings and told him to enter the room without giving him a hint of the danger.
When companies ignore safeguards, their employees are put in harm’s way. “Companies have to put the safety and health of their employees first,” our attorneys said in a statement. “We will fight to make the company answer for putting our client in that position and forcing him to live with the pain and injuries that he will have to endure for the rest of his life.”
