No matter the cause, explosion accidents are frightening and extremely dangerous. They can happen anywhere – at your house, apartment building, outside, or in the workplace. When pipes, equipment, machinery, or buildings are poorly designed or maintained, catastrophic injuries can occur.
Some common causes of explosions are gas leaks, open flames, overheated boilers, and chemical reactions. These accidents are preventable, but building owners, property managers, and construction sites can sometimes be negligent.
Explosions result in numerous types of injuries including:
nasal and throat damage
The emotional stress following an accident can be as devastating as the accident itself. Having an experienced lawyer help you through the process of recovering from medical costs, lost wages, and displacement can ease some of the strain.
