Air Compressor Accidents


Air compressors are an important part of the construction industry, powering many of the tools and other devices that construction workers use every day. While air compressors are a necessity, they can also be dangerous, especially when they are defective, or workers are unaware of how to properly use them.

Air Compressor Explosions

Air compressors are used in a variety of applications, from powering pneumatic tools such as grinders, sanders, and jackhammers, to filling tires and gas cylinders. When the air compressor is defective or is not maintained or operated properly, it has the potential for an explosion. 

Some of the most common causes of air compressor explosions include:

  • Overheating
  • Excessive rust
  • Static electricity
  • Excessive pressure
  • Airline puncture
  • Unfiltered air
  • Equipment defects
  • Improper training 

Air Compressor Accident Compensation 

Air compressor accidents can be devastating, often resulting in serious injuries and death. Victims of an air compressor accident often face disabilities and disfigurement that is not only painful but is often life-changing. 

If you have been involved in an air compressor accident, you may be entitled to the following compensation: 

  • Emergency and ongoing medical expenses, including rehabilitation and therapy
  • Pain and suffering
  • Loss of enjoyment of normal life
  • Lost wages
  • Emotional distress
  • Wrongful death

If you or a loved one has suffered injuries due to negligence on the job site, an experienced personal injury lawyer can review your claim and determine if there were unsafe working conditions, potential OSHA violations, and other hazards that may have existed at the time of your accident. They will also determine who may be liable for your injuries and damages and what compensation you may be entitled to.
