Construction Site Blasting & Explosives Injury Attorne

Blasting, or the controlled use of explosives to eliminate rock from construction sites, is commonly used throughout WV. The use of these materials is closely regulated by the Occupational Safety and Health Act. If you have been directly injured in a blasting accident, strict liability standards apply and no proof of negligence is required. No matter how careful the responsible party was, or how much care was exercised to keep you safe, you can still recover for your medical bills, injuries, and other losses that you have sustained as a result of the injuries incurred from the blast. If your injuries were caused indirectly as a result of the blast, we will help you determine whether or not the responsible party was negligent by causing an unreasonable risk of harm.
