Explosion incidents can become incredibly complex. In most cases, a person injured in an explosion does not have the resources or experience necessary to properly investigate their case and take on the negligent party. An attorney who specializes in explosion injuries will be responsible for handling every aspect of your case. This includes:
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:

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.
There are various types of injuries that can occur in an explosion incident: primary, secondary, tertiary, and quaternary.
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:
These injuries are caused by flying debris or fragments caused by the explosion and can include:
These injuries happen as a result of a person being thrown due to the explosion blast wind and include:
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:
