Many Pennsylvania workers have fallen victim to workplace accidents. State law dictates that any injured employee who sustains an injury in the course of employment must be compensated by workers' compensation insurance held by the employer. Many workers often consult legal professionals familiar with workers' compensation laws in order to obtain full compensation for their injuries.
A new technical analysis was recently conducted to thoroughly investigate a 2010 factory explosion in Pennsylvania. The preliminary analysis revealed that the explosion most likely occurred when the factory's process of decompressing zinc caused an overheating of the material, which then exploded due to the mineral's chemical properties. The factory explosion claimed the lives of two workers and injured one.
