Explosion at Gatesville hospital kills 1 and injures 12

On the afternoon of June 26, a massive explosion tore through a construction site at Coryell Memorial Hospital in Gatesville, Texas. The blast killed one construction worker and seriously injured 12 workers. The injured workers were transferred to area hospitals, including Baylor Scott and White Hospital in Temple and Hillcrest in Waco. Some of the injured workers suffered serious burns. Four of the most critically injured workers who were initially sent to Baylor White and Scott Hospital were later transferred to Dell Seton at the University of Texas.

After the explosion, David Byrom, the CEO of Coryell Memorial Health System, said that the blast was possibly related to a gas line leak. He also said that no hospital patients or staff were injured.

In the wake of the explosion, attorney Paula Wyatt expressed her concern: "We at Wyatt Law Firm are deeply moved by the suffering of the victims and their families. Our thoughts and prayers are with them."

Dangers faced by construction workers

The Gatesville explosion underscores the dangers that construction workers face every day. Construction workers who have suffered injuries caused by negligent third parties or safety violations have an important decision to make. They may be eligible for compensation beyond that provided by the workers' compensation system. The same applies for families of construction workers who have been killed in similar on-the-job accidents.

Injured workers and families of accident victims should speak with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible to learn about their legal options.
