Rochester Factory Accident Creates Fireball & Burns Two Workers

Posted By Arnold & Itkin LLP || 7-Aug-2018

On Monday afternoon, an explosion occurred at a factory in Rochester, New York. Authorities initially responded to reports of an individual on fire at Arconic Fastening Systems. When they arrived, they found two men with critical burn injuries all over their bodies. Both men were taken Strong Memorial Hospital and no further details about their condition have been released.

Upon investigation, the Rochester Fire Department revealed that a leaking hydraulic press was the source of the explosion. The leak came into contact with an ignition source, creating a fireball with a 30-foot diameter that enveloped both men.

Factory Equipment Must Be Maintained for Safety

Factories and plants are inherently dangerous places to work. As a result, it is the responsibility of employers to protect the well-being of their employees by maintaining safety standards—this includes the maintenance of heavy machinery. Too often, companies fail to maintain their equipment and, when things go wrong, employees are often the ones who pay the consequences.

Our Rochester factory accident lawyers hope for a full recovery for the two men who were burned as a result of this faulty equipment.

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.
