Causes of a Fire and Explosion Injury
There are numerous reasons why a fire or explosion might occur. Construction sites and industrial sites are common areas for fires and explosions. The chemicals and materials used in construction and industrial workplaces are often flammable and unstable. If the materials are not handled with extreme care, a fire or explosion can happen without warning.
Gas lines are another example of a dangerous situation that can result in a gas explosion. Workers installing, maintaining, or repairing gas lines can make a mistake or error that leads to an explosion or fire. Lines may leak, causing hazardous conditions.
Likewise, appliances and machinery that use gas or other combustible fuel can also cause fires and explosions. Other causes of fires and explosions include faulty wiring, defective products, and intentional acts of arson.
Most fires and explosions are caused by negligence or carelessness. Parties that could be liable for fire and explosion injuries include property owners, utility companies, contractors, builders, subcontractors, construction companies, product manufacturers, suppliers, and government entities. Identifying the cause of the fire or explosion is crucial for identifying the party or parties responsible for the damages caused by the fire or explosion.
Common Injuries Caused by Fires and Explosions
Severe burns are some of the most devastating and common injuries caused by fires and explosions. However, other injuries caused by fires and explosions can be as debilitating and life-threatening.
The physical and emotional damages caused by a fire or explosion can be debilitating. The financial losses caused by fire and explosion injuries can total in the millions of dollars over a person’s lifetime. Victims need and deserve to receive full compensation for all injuries, financial losses, and other damages caused by fire and explosion injuries.
