Owens-Corning Asphalt Accident Leaves Two Hospitalized

Posted By Injury Lawyer || 29-Jun-2010

A pair of workers at the Owens Corning Plant in Kansas City, Kansas was injured last month as a result of an equipment malfunction while the men unloaded asphalt.  

Emergency services from Kansas City, Kansas were called out to address the situation at 8 a.m. to attend to the two employees, who had suffered critical burn injuries from the hot asphalt and were transported to a hospital.

Hot asphalt can be as high as 450 degrees, and reports said the two employees were critically burnt by the asphalt during off loading process. Equipment malfunction reportedly caused asphalt to be spewed onto the employees and crews were able to evacuate the injured from the area. Other employees at the plant helped the firefighters.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
