What Is A Gas Explosion?
An explosion that occurs when a gas leak combines with a source of ignition is known as a gas explosion. Anyone who is near a gas explosion can sustain a serious injury. A gas explosion can occur in pipes, equipment, offshore facilities as well as open or enclosed spaces. Gas explosions often occur in agricultural or industrial settings. However, many people today use propane or natural gas in their homes. That is why a gas explosion can very easily occur in a person’s home. If you or one of your loved ones has been injured in a gas explosion, then you should contact Zimmerman & Frachtman. They will review your case and assist you in the process of filing a claim.
What Causes A Gas Explosion?
In many cases, gas explosions are caused by negligence. Violations of safety practices, code violations and defective products are examples of negligence that can lead to a gas explosion. A gas explosion can also occur if the ventilation is not adequate. Improper installation of gas lines is another example of negligence that can lead to a gas explosion. Additionally, the gas is not odorized, and this can be classified as negligence. Odor has to be added to propane or natural gas. This is a safety precaution because it will warn people that there is gas present.
In order to receive the proper compensation for a gas explosion that occurs because of negligence, it may be helpful to consult with an experienced personal injury attorney. Your personal injury lawyers will do a thorough investigation of your case. They will also research worker’s compensation benefits. Additionally, they will be there to guide you and give you advice about how you can handle your case.
