Fire and Explosion Accidents
Explosions and fires often lead to devastating personal injuries, death, and destruction of property and livelihoods. They are shocking and overwhelming events. Victims need both immediate and long-term help, including help from experienced lawyers, to pick up the pieces and move toward recovery
The law allows victims of explosions and fires, including firefighters and rescuers, to recover for injuries, death, and property damage when the explosion or fire was caused by negligence. The causes of explosions and fires can very often be traced back to human error – or corporate neglect – whether the cause of the explosion or fire be from a defective smoke detector or fire alarm, electrical appliance, fireplaces, faulty wiring, a poorly designed and placed gas tank in a motor vehicle or negligent maintenance of public electric or gas utilities. Each of these negligent acts alone is enough to cause an explosion or fire.
No matter how your fire or explosion accident occurred, if you suffered an injury as a result of another person’s negligence or careless behavior, you may be entitled to compensation for your injuries.
