Explosions and fires often lead to devastating personal injuries, death, and destruction of property and livelihoods. They are shocking and overwhelming events. Victims need both immediate and long-term help, including help from experienced lawyers, to pick up the pieces and move toward recovery.
From a legal standpoint, explosion and fire accident claims involve a complicated, technical mix of federal and state laws and regulations and industry standards. From a factual standpoint, they are often caused by multiple acts and omissions of different parties, and highly specialized experts are required to prove the cause of the explosion or fire and the manner in which it could have been prevented.
