Fires and explosions can cause devastating injuries and loss. As trial lawyers who represent the victims of these catastrophic events, the Harrison Davis team knows first-hand just how complex the physical and psychological injuries can be. While fires and explosions may cause instantaneous death, those who survive these incidents must face a road to recovery that is long, excruciatingly painful, and unbelievably expensive. Injuries may include loss of limbs, permanent scarring, loss of vision or hearing, breathing difficulties, or other lifelong impairments.
How do Fires and Explosions Happen?
Fires and explosions are often the result of someone else’s negligence. Responsible parties may include oil and gas companies, manufacturers, utility providers, contractors, or others who have simply failed to follow the regulatory safety guidelines that are intended to keep workers and nearby communities safe. Indeed, some of the cases we’ve been involved with have included:
- Incorrectly installed natural gas, propane, or electrical lines
- Faulty or improperly-maintained wiring
- Building code violations
- Failure to have adequate fire extinguishers, emergency escape plans, and/or emergency exits
- Lack of functional smoke detectors
- Inadequate training in the maintenance, handling, and storage of combustible materials
How Can Families Recover?
If you have been injured in a fire/explosion or have lost a loved one in one of these incidents, you need to contact a top-notch trial lawyer as soon as possible. These cases are complex and require the expertise and knowledge of seasoned trial lawyers who know how to achieve maximum recovery from the negligent parties. In fact, those parties may be responsible for compensating you for things like:
- Lost wages
- Medical bills
- Physical pain and suffering
- Psychological pain and suffering
- Costs of future care
