Wildfire Damages over 1,700 Acres of Land in Colorado

Over 350 citizens have been evacuated from Wetmore, Colorado due to a wildfire. The fire has spread, and burned over 1,700 acres of land. Firefighters are still working to contain this fire, which has already destroyed 12 structures. Officials state that arcing power lines are likely to blame for this damaging fire. This occurs when two power lines touch each other and create sparks. The arcing of power lines can be prevented by proper maintenance and safety devices that will prevent the lines from arcing. A lawyer experienced in handling claims involving arcing power lines would make sure that the investigation was conducted thoroughly. An experienced investigator may determine that lines or poles were negligently maintained by the power company or others that may be responsible for maintaining them.

DANGERS OF ENERGY DRINKS

Blumenthal calls for stronger oversight on energy drinks.

The Hill (10/25, Cox, 21K) “Floor Action” blog reports that Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee member Richard Blumenthal (D-CT) lauded the Food and Drug Administration’s “decision Tuesday to investigate an energy drink linked to five deaths.” Noting that “Monster Energy Drink has been connected to one non-fatal heart attack, in addition to the five deaths,” Blumenthal said stronger regulation “is needed on popular energy drinks, which are commonly consumed by children.” Blumenthal and Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL) initially, “called on the FDA to investigate energy drinks during the summer, saying increased scrutiny is needed. ‘These tragic deaths show the severe risks affecting certain consumers of these products,'” Blumenthal said on Tuesday.

Oil Field Explosion in Young County

A recent oil field explosion in Graham, Texas brings attention to the dangers that oil field workers face. Oil field injuries can be incredibly debilitating. The explosion occurred in Young County, north of Loving, Texas. The charred scene of the explosion is still covered in oil. One victim has been severely burned. Another victim sustained minor burns while attempting to get the first victim to safety.

The incident occurred when the tank battery a worker was welding on exploded. The tank battery was thought to be empty when the worker began welding. Whether or not there was workplace negligence remains to be seen. Was the worker intentionally asked to work in a dangerous situation? The corporation involved is still investigating exactly how this unfortunate accident occurred. Whether or not proper safety precautions were taken is unknown.

The severely burned victim remains in critical condition in Parkland Hospital in Dallas. Officials have stated that the victim sustained third degree burns on at least 80 percent of his body. It would be prudent for the family of the victim to contact a Texoma personal injury lawyer. Having an advocate during this difficult time is crucial. This family will be facing expensive medical bills. Ongoing treatment and costly rehabilitation is often necessary for victims of oil field explosions.
