Marshfield, MO (May 14, 2021) – Three workers were injured when a propane facility caught fire on the afternoon of Thursday, May 13th. The fire occurred at Pinnacle Propane in Marshfield.

While only three employees were working at the time of the fire and all were able to escape the building, they were left with serious injuries.

The owners are working with investigators to determine the cause of the fire.

Our thoughts are with the injured victims and their families at this time. We hope for their full recovery.

Workplace Injuries in Marshfield

People who have been injured during explosions deserve answers as well as financial compensation. These two things together are what give victims and their families closure and allow them to move on with their lives. An experienced Missouri personal injury attorney will conduct a thorough investigation in order to find out:

  • If gross negligence was committed on the part of the landlord or a company, making them responsible for the explosion

  • If a landlord or company was aware of the risk of an explosion

  • If a defective product or flawed process caused or contributed to the explosion

  • If improper or inadequate training led to any worker negligence

Where propane tanks are involved, it is crucial to a personal injury claim to determine if the explosion was the result of a loose valve, improperly filled tank, poor ventilation, or an appliance that was improperly installed.
