An Explosion in Richmond has claimed the life of a Construction Worker

Two construction workers were badly burned in an explosion last week at a Henrico County warehouse.  They were both taken to VCU Medical Center and had been listed in critical condition.  Sadly, one of these men succumbed to his injuries and passed away on Friday.  My prayers will be with theses workers and their families.  I cannot imagine what you must be going though right now.

From what the article detailed, the men were up on a scissor lift removing some ventilation pipes when some flammable vapors ignited causing the explosion.shutterstock_289815098

The dependents of this injured worker could be entitled to death benefits under Virginia workers’ compensation laws.  Nothing can replace a loved one but the State does provide for some compensation in these situations.  Hopefully,  claiming these benefits can help ease the burden of trying to deal with finances on top of the already excruciating emotional pain that I know they must be dealing with.

If someone in your family is dealing with the loss of a loved one as a result of a work  accident or if you would like more information on the Virginia workers’ compensation system, order my book, “The Ultimate Guide to Workers’ Compensation in Virginia,” or call our office today (804) 755-7755.
