Thankfully, explosions are rare, but when they happen, they typically result in catastrophic injuries. People injured in explosions are often unable to work at least temporarily and often face long-term or permanent disabilities and disfigurement. Tragically, many explosions result in death. If you or a loved one has been injured in an explosion, a skilled personal injury lawyer from Lopez Franco can help you get the compensation you need to rebuild your life.

Handling All Types of Explosion Cases

Explosions can occur in almost any setting. They can be caused by gas leaks, fires coming into contact with combustible materials, or overheating machinery. At Logan Franco, we’re prepared to handle your claim no matter where it occurred, including the following: 

  • Factory and industrial settings
  • Oil derricks
  • Mines
  • Utility plants
  • Residential properties
  • Commercial properties

The environment where your explosion occurred will determine who may have been responsible. A personal injury lawyer with experience handling explosion claims will know what makes these cases unique and what evidence you need. 

We Hold At-Fault Parties Accountable

In the event of an explosion, many different parties may be responsible as a result of their negligence. A thorough, independent investigation will be vital to identifying the cause of the explosion and who should be held liable. Some of the causes that can trigger liability include the following: 

  • Inadequate storage or unsafe handling of hazardous or combustible materials
  • Failure to make repairs to gas lines or other infrastructure
  • Faulty wiring
  • Malfunctioning machinery and other equipment failures caused by lack of maintenance
  • Defective products, machinery, or other equipment that led to the explosion
  • Inadequate safety protocols
  • Lack of training or supervision of employees

Both private and commercial property owners have a legal obligation to maintain their property in a manner that is safe for guests and visitors. When they are negligent in identifying hazards or addressing dangerous issues, these property owners can be held accountable for any reasonably foreseeable accidents that may result. 

Gathering the evidence you need and proving your case takes work, however. To ensure you get the compensation you deserve, you need a personal injury attorney who knows how to build a strong case. 

What Your Case May Be Worth

People who have been injured in explosions that were caused by negligence may be entitled to compensation for the following: 

  • Current and future medical expenses
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering 

Depending on the severity of your injuries, your claim is likely worth far more than you think. Unfortunately, most non-lawyers settle their claims for less than what they are entitled to, resulting in uncovered losses and bills they can’t pay. Before accepting any settlement, the best thing to do is speak with a personal injury attorney about your options.
