Working with flammable materials can pose a considerable risk to employees. Even a seemingly minor accident could result in injured workers if a fire breaks out. Fires often cause serious injuries, and workers may be significantly affected if they are victims of a fire-related accident. Unfortunately, one such accident recently took place in Oklahoma. 

Reports stated that a gas company worker had attempted to open a valve on an oil well when the well exploded. The explosion caused the worker to catch on fire, and he stopped, dropped and rolled in efforts to put out the flames. A co-worker used a fire extinguisher to help the man before moving him to a safer area. Emergency crews were able to get the fire stopped a few hours after the initial incident. 

The explosion caused the worker to suffer burns to the lower half of his body. It was noted that the most severe burns were to the lower part of his legs. Luckily, the injuries are not considered life threatening, and he was transported to the hospital for treatment.

After being injured at work, a myriad of thoughts may run through an Oklahoma employee’s mind. He or she may worry about losing income, paying medical expenses and recovering from injuries sustained. These concerns may put added stress on an already complex situation, but workers’ compensation may be able to lessen some of the financial burden.

One man in another state may be hoping to effectively address his concerns after recently being injured on the job. Reports stated that the man worked as a house-lifter and had been working on a partially collapsed waterfront structure at the time of the incident. He and another individual had been securing beams and pilings when the man was knocked in the head by a beam.

The incident caused the man to fall into the water below. After falling, he became stuck in the water due to a chain getting wrapped around his leg. Emergency personnel were able to rescue the man from the water, and he was taken from the scene by helicopter in order to have his injuries addressed. It was not specifically noted what injuries he may have suffered or what his condition was at the time of the report.

Being involved in a car crash caused by a drunk driver may be some people’s worst nightmare. Unfortunately, these types of car accidents are relatively common, but the injuries that result uniquely affect the individuals involved. Because devastating outcomes can stem from such events, it is also not unusual for negatively affected parties to pursue legal recourse.

It was recently reported that a serious accident in Oklahoma took place, and alcohol is suspected. Apparently, the crash involved three vehicles and occurred around 1:30 a.m. Reports stated that a 20-year-old woman was driving a pickup truck east in the westbound lanes and collided with a second pickup that was traveling west. A third vehicle then collided with the second pickup after the initial collision.

The incident resulted in multiple individuals becoming trapped in their vehicles. Emergency crews were able to rescue them after several minutes. Three individuals were taken to an area hospital due to suffering severe injuries. It was unclear in which vehicles the three injured individuals had been. Authorities believe that the 20-year-old woman was under the influence at the time of the accident.

After being injured in a car crash, gathering information may be vital. Injured parties may need certain information for insurance purposes and in order to take other actions that may be suited to their situation. Car accidents that involve tractor-trailers can often cause serious injuries, and in many cases, injured parties may wish to file a civil lawsuit against the parties considered at fault.

One man may be considering such legal action after a recent crash in Oklahoma. Reports stated that the incident occurred at an intersection when a semi-truck was traveling south and a car was heading east. The two vehicles collided, but additional details regarding what may have caused the incident or who may have had the right of way were not available at the time of the report.

The crash resulted in the car driver suffering severe injuries, and he was transported from the scene to be treated at a hospital. He was reported as being 33 years old. The driver of the semi-truck apparently did not suffer any injuries, and he remained on the scene. Authorities were continuing to investigate the collision.

Many individuals may be minding their own business when they are unexpectedly involved in serious events. Some parties may even be on their own property when they suddenly find themselves injured due to the actions of another individual. If head trauma or other severe injuries result from an accident, there may be cause to seek compensation.

One man in Oklahoma may be looking for such restitution after a recent crash. Reports stated that the man was on the porch of his home when a car crashed through a fence, hit a parked vehicle and proceeded to collide with the man and his porch. The driver of the car was reportedly under the influence at the time of the incident and claimed to have been speeding, which resulted in her losing control of the car.

The man suffered serious injuries to his head and leg as a result of the incident. The driver of the car was also reported as having suffered a head injury. She was taken into custody and later released on a $5,000 bond. Results for a blood-alcohol test were apparently not available at the time of the report.

Many individuals may be devastated to suffer an injury on the job, especially if it causes serious or permanent injuries. When these injuries occur in Oklahoma, workers’ compensation may be able to help those workers and/or their families who have been negatively affected. Various workplace accidents could lead to individuals needing such financial assistance.

A work-related accident recently took place in another state. Reports indicated that an industrial plant was undergoing a demolition, and as the demolition was taking place, a wall collapsed. It was unclear whether steps should have been taken to reinforce the wall while the operation was being carried out or if other factors contributed to the unexpected event taking place.

The wall collapse led to two workers being injured. One individual unfortunately did not survive the injuries suffered. The second worker was taken to an area hospital, and that person was luckily not considered to be in critical condition. The fatal incident was under investigation at the time of the report, and a spokesperson for the company stated that they were cooperating with authorities to carry out an investigation.

Car accidents are notorious for causing serious injuries, and in many cases, taking legal action may be in the best interests of those negatively affected.

While stopped, an SUV traveling at an excessive speed crashed into the back of the car. The collision caused both vehicles to end up in a ditch. The crash took place at approximately 7 a.m.

With the number of vehicles traveling the roadways, crashes are often considered inevitable. These car accidents can be even more likely if a driver has consumed alcohol before getting behind the wheel. Too often, this factor leads to incidents that result in individuals being seriously injured. When such injuries or death stem from a crash, individuals may wish to take legal action.

It was recently reported that an accident in Oklahoma involved two vehicles. One driver was attempting to pull onto a roadway, but the pickup truck entered the path of a northbound car. As a result, the northbound vehicle collided with the pickup truck. There were two people in the truck and at least four individuals in the other car, including three children.

The injured individuals were reported as being the 51-year-old driver and 19-year-old passenger in the pickup as well as the 35-year-old driver and three young children in the car. The occupants of the truck and the car were take to two different hospitals. Authorities suspect that foggy weather conditions and intoxication on the part of the pickup driver were factors in the incident.

Unfortunately, the injuries the man suffered proved fatal despite his being taken to an area hospital. He was reported as being 53 years old. It was also mentioned that he leaves behind six children as well as some grandchildren. Due to the circumstances of the event, the family may wish to determine whether workers’ compensation benefits could be a form of financial assistance for which they could qualify.
