Plant Fire at Ohio GM Facility

In a work accident last Friday, four men were taken to an area hospital.

The incident happened shortly before 9 pm at a General Motors Plant in Ohio. According to a release that GM put out, a small fire broke out from some welding work that was being done at the plant by contractors. At the time of the fire the GM facility was lightly staffed.

The four men were taken from the scene to a nearby hospital where they were treated for their injuries. All but one was released later on that night. The fourth remained hospitalized because of the injuries sustained.

Liability Questions

Many times in accidents like this the injured and the families are
left wondering who is liable and what their legal rights are. In most
work injury cases, the worker is able to collect workers’ compensation.
In more rare occasions the injured can go directly after the employer to
hold them liable. In order to determine if you can hold an employer
liable for the damages caused, you would need to consult with an Ohio work injury lawyer
to discuss your options. In many cases, whether it is against the
employer or collecting workers’ compensation, a work injury specialist
will be able to help you navigate through the claim in order to secure
you the settlement you deserve.

If you have questions about your legal rights after a work injury,
