One of the most common types of injuries reported by employees today are burns resulting from fires or explosions in the workplace. In fact, the Bureau of labor Statistics estimates that a total of 132 workers lost their lives as a result of such accidents last year.

Three workers at the Tesla Motors factory in Fremont, California, were left seriously injured as a result of burns they suffered while on the job earlier this month. The California Fire and Burn Injury Lawyers with Berg Injury Lawyers explain the incident happened just before noon on Wednesday, November 13.

Reports from MY FOX-Austin indicate the workers were performing their normal duties at the facility when an aluminum casting press suddenly malfunctioned, causing molten metal to spew from the equipment. Each of the workers suffered serious burns as a result of being scalded by the spilling liquid metal. They were transported to a local trauma center for further treatment to the injuries they sustained in the incident.

Doctors later determined one of the workers had sustained serious burns to his chest and upper body, while the other two victims sustained second-degree burns.

Berg Injury Lawyers and their team of California Personal Injury Attorneys are aware of how difficult recovering from serious burn injuries can be. That is why the firm is here to help anyone who has suffered such an injury because of someone else’s negligence.
