Six People Injured in an Explosion in Tennessee

A recent explosion caused a fire at the Kilgore Flares Co. causing six people to suffer personal injuries near Memphis, Tennessee. Three of the six people were listed in critical condition. The cause of the explosion is still unknown. Authorities have ruled out terrorism, however.

Kilgore Flares Co. manufactures and supplies red decoy flares to the military designed to act as a decoy for the threat of guided missiles. During the explosion, sparks and debris were thrown through the air by the fire and ignited the clothing of the three critically injured people. These three victims were airlifted to the Regional Medical Center in Memphis, Tennessee where their personal injuries are being treated. The additional three victims are in good condition and were taken to West Tennessee Health Care.

Unfortunately, work related accidents do happen and can cause the personal injury or wrongful death of employees. It is the responsibility of the employer to make sure that the working conditions of every employee are safe and hazard free. The employer is at fault for any injuries suffered if an employee is harmed while performing his or her job.

If you have suffered a personal injury or if you have lost a loved one due to an accident on the job in Memphis, Tennessee, please contact the Memphis personal injury lawyers at the Cochran Firm today to schedule a consultation about your personal injury case.
