Oil Tank Explosion in Madison County Injures 6 People
Early Friday morning WAPT reports of a large oil tank explosion near Kearney Park in Madison County.

It is still not clear as to what caused the explosion, but fire crews are staying on seen during the investigation.
This particular accident raises some issues that many people don’t know much about. The only remedy against the employer is workers compensation. However, if someone besides the employer was at fault, the workers can file a claim against the at fault company separately. Both cases can be done at the same time. An experienced lawyer will use a timing strategy to maximize remedies in both cases. If you or a loved one find themselves in a situation like this, it is urgent that you contact an experienced lawyer who has handled these specific situations before.
