Compensation for Explosion Injuries & Damage
There are many different types of explosions but any can bring devastating consequences for those affected. If you or a loved one has suffered in this manner, whether at work, at home, or on another’s property or even public property, speak to a lawyer about your legal rights and options. As such incidents can cause severe burn injuries, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and other catastrophic injuries, you may deserve compensation for your suffering and losses. The legal team at Amaro Law Firm will fight aggressively for your rights and can also assist with a wrongful death claim if you have lost a loved one in such a tragic event. Some types of explosions that we address include:
Gas Line Explosions
A gas line may explode due to a defective product used in its construction or operation, negligence regarding safety standards or other factors. They can cause massive fires and tremendous injuries and sadly, often also cause many deaths. The construction company or operator of the gas line or any other responsible party may be pursued for damages.
Pipeline explosions cause severe and far-reaching consequences which can destroy many lives. When a highly flammable gas ignites in such vast quantities, lives can be lost, major injuries sustained, property destroyed and whole environments damaged. Victims may seek compensation for any and all costs and injuries resulting from such an incident.
Propane is a colorless gas found in natural gas and petroleum and commonly used for fuel, cooking and heating. Leaky propane lines in homes, corroded propane pipes in factories, propane tanks in plants and similar incidents can cause explosions, severe fires and burns, shrapnel injuries and other terrible effects for those involved.
Oil and petrochemical refineries contain inherent dangers due to the highly flammable nature of the materials with which they work. Strict precautions must be taken to prevent explosions, such as safe containment of liquids, precise maintenance of pressurized tanks and containers, regular inspections and other safety procedures. Where these have been violated and an explosion results, victims may sue for damages.
