“A worker suffered severe burns in an explosion while he was repairing a semitrailer in DeKalb County on Thursday morning,” AJC.com is reporting.  “The accident happened at the 4300 block of Old McDonough Road, in the southwest corner of DeKalb,” according to WSBTV.com.  “[A] worker was inside the trailer doing welding work when something ignited, causing a large fire, …[and t]he injured worker was taken to Grady Memorial Hospital with severe burns,” per the new outlet.

The fire remains under investigation according to the media reports.

OUR LEGAL TAKE

According to the Georgia workers’ compensation legal team at The Murray Law Firm, as the incident occurred in a workplace setting, the victim will almost certainly be entitled to significant compensation under the Workers’ Compensation laws of Georgia. Additionally, should an equipment malfunction have contributed to this tragedy, the victim may elect to pursue legal claims against the manufacturer.

Based upon its years of experience, The Murray Law Firm warns that employers and insurance companies are concerned with limiting their financial exposure; and, without the guidance of an experienced lawyer, the family’s interests may be jeopardized.

Choosing the Right Attorney

Selecting the right attorney for you or your family is highly important. You must feel confident that the attorney you hire has a complete understanding of the law applicable to your particular case, and has successful experience in handling such cases.

Important: Do not hire a lawyer who has violated the Rules of Professional Conduct!!!

You should not hire an attorney who calls you or visits you unsolicited, or anyone that contacts you directly to offer legal services. This activity is strictly prohibited by Rule 7.3 of the American Bar Association (ABA) Model Rules of Professional Conduct, which states as follows:

ABA Center for Professional ResponsibilityA LAWYER “SHALL NOT” CONTACT A PROSPECTIVE CLIENT THROUGH A “LIVE TELEPHONE” OR AN “IN-PERSON” VISIT.

– RULE 7.3, ABA MODEL RULES OF PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT.

If an attorney, or someone acting on behalf of an attorney, contacts you in this manner, that attorney is in violation of this Rule. This unethical and unprofessional activity on the part of the lawyer is good sign that you should stay away. It is imperative that you are represented by an attorney who is capable of advocating for you within the confines of the law, and an attorney who fails to abide by the Rules of Professional Conduct is probably not the best fit. In fact, any such attorney should be immediately reported to the local State Bar Association. If you have been contacted in such an unsolicited manner, contact us and we’ll assist you in filing a report.

Atlanta, GA – December 29, 2018

Could this senseless workplace violence have been prevented are justice and compensation available to the injured employee?

Gunfire erupted “outside of the Church’s Chicken on Cleveland Avenue around 10:40 p.m. Saturday,” December 29, 2018, according to 11 Alive.

Police told FOX 5, a female employee was transported to Grady Memorial Hospital with a gunshot wound to the abdomen.

Shooting investigations occurred at other Georgia Church’s Chicken locations in October 2018 and February 2018, per AJC and WSB reports. The harrowing incidents raise questions over late-night fast-food restaurant employee and patron safety.

Read Our Legal Take below to find out if the victim may have legal avenues for civil justice as well as claims for substantial workers’ compensation benefits in Georgia.

Our Legal Take

Restaurant employees have a right to feel safe and secure in their workplace. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided at the property and whether this senseless shooting may have been prevented.

  • Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property?
  • What employee training and late-night security measures were in place to deter crime and protect the victim at the time of the shooting?

The Murray Law Firm has recovered millions of dollars for victims of workplace injuries in Georgia, and recently obtained a $29.25 million dollar verdict for a victim of unsafe work conditions in a Fulton County court.
