An Explosion Occurred at a Steel Mill in Michigan

Posted By Arnold & Itkin || 1-Aug-2017

Late last night, an explosion occurred at the U.S. Steel plant near Zug Island in Michigan—an industrialized island south of Detroit. Two of the people caught in the explosion were sent to the burn unit at Detroit Receiving Hospital. At the moment, the severity of their injuries remains unknown—as well as any details that might identify them prior to their families being notified.

Initial reports said that the explosion occurred on Zug Island, but Captain William Abair of the River Rouge Fire Department confirmed that the explosion happened at “the 80 Inch Hot Strip Mill.”

U.S. Steel plants have a history with explosions. In 2014, a plant in Fairfield, AL exploded, injuring 2 and killing 1. The two who were injured were reportedly covered in severe burns. In 2010, a massive coke-oven explosion injured 20 people at the U.S. Steel plant in Clairton, PA.

Arnold & Itkin hopes that the injuries suffered were minor and that the injured workers fully recover.

Client's portion of total recovery may be subject to Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement claims, Medicare/Medicaid liens or other third-party claims or liens. These verdicts and settlements are intended to be representative of cases handled by Arnold & Itkin, LLP. These listings are not a guarantee or prediction of the outcome of any other claims.
