Worker injured in industrial fire

Hawaii news reports that a worker suffered serious personal injuries in a Honolulu industrial accident. According to an initial investigation, a fuel tank exploded at a recycling plant on Hanua Street. One of the workers suffered burn injuries in the explosion. He is expected to recover.

If you have been injured on the job, it is important to speak to an experienced Hawaii workplace attorney right away. Depending on the circumstances, you may be entitled to bring a claim for workers compensation or, alternatively, bring a civil personal injury lawsuit. Workers compensation claims cover injuries, regardless of fault. However, filing a claim can be a daunting experience, requiring extensive documentation and paperwork to prove that you qualify for the payment of benefits. If you attempt to file the claim on your own, you run the risk of having your claim denied, delayed or of being approved for less than you need.

A knowledgeable Hawaii personal injury lawyer can work with you through the entire process, from properly notifying your employer, to obtaining the necessary documentation from your doctor, to negotiating with the insurance company to ensure you receive your benefits in a timely manner. Further, in some situations it may be possible to file a personal injury suit. Civil lawsuits may be brought where a third party is at fault – such as where an outside contractor is responsible for the injury. Determining whether the injury falls within the worker’s compensation or civil arena can be complex, so it is a good idea to speak with an attorney to determine the best course of action.
