BREAKING: The Doan Law Firm is currently monitoring a devastating explosion at the Sandman Hotel in Forth Worth.  If you or a loved one were injured in this incident, please contact us for more information.

The word catastrophic is used to describe injuries that are truly devastating, ones that are unthinkable. Explosions cause catastrophic injuries. They leave survivors with immense physical and emotional wounds and they have long-lasting consequences. Explosion injuries leave victims and their families with losses that may never heal. In the aftermath of an explosion injury, victims need support and they should be fairly compensated if another person’s careless or negligent actions caused the explosion.

At the Doan Law Firm, our qualified and experienced explosion accident attorneys will investigate your explosion incident and work to secure any compensation you may be entitled to.

How Do Explosion Incidents Occur and Who is Liable?

The truth is that companies are often liable for these injuries. A company wants you to believe an explosion was unpreventable and spontaneous because this would let them “off the hook.” Companies should never be off the hook for an injury they caused.

Some places are more common than others for explosions accidents. Companies are responsible for ensuring that their plants, factories, rigs, refineries, construction sites and vessels are all properly inspected and maintained so they operate as safely as possible.

Explosions can happen in the workplace for a number of reasons, including aging equipment, poor safety practices, lack of safety tools or equipment, and a lack of employee training. Some of the most common causes of explosions include:

In many cases, an attorney investigating an explosion incident will find a company culture devoted to productivity over safety. While this may pay off in the short run, a drive for profits over safety will almost always result in injuries for employees. Any company that does not follow proper safety protocols could be held liable for an explosion injury.

Your attorney will also investigate the company that manufactured any equipment that exploded. It could be the case that the equipment was defective and that the defect was caused by the manufacturer.

What kind of Injuries are Caused By Explosions?

There are various types of injuries that can occur in an explosion incident: primary, secondary, tertiary, and quaternary.

Primary injuries

These injuries are caused by the explosion pressure wave hitting the body. In these cases, any gas-filled structures inside the body (lungs, middle ear, gastrointestinal tract) can be affected. These injuries can include:

Secondary injuries

These injuries are caused by flying debris or fragments caused by the explosion and can include:

  • Penetrating injuries
  • Blunt injuries
  • Cuts
  • Impalement
  • Eye penetration
  • Lacerations

Tertiary injuries

These injuries happen as a result of a person being thrown due to the explosion blast wind and include:

Quaternary injuries

Finally, quaternary injuries are those not covered in the first three categories. These involve a variety of injuries, illnesses, and diseases that are a result of the explosion or caused by the exasperation of existing medical conditions:

  • Burn injuries
  • Smoke inhalation
  • Crushing injuries
  • Angina
  • Exacerbation of respiratory illness
  • COPD
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Hyperglycemia
  • Cancer from chemical exposure
  • Hypertension

Attorney Doan can review the details of your case, advise you what to expect in compensation, and explain what claims can be made on your behalf.
