Explosion Accidents can occur in a variety of ways and damage property. This includes the following:
Explosives are also regularly used in construction taking place in and around commercial and residential areas. This can include road construction work, building site preparation, construction of gas lines and water lines, the installation of utility lines, and more.
Regardless of how an explosion occurs, companies and workers are required to follow state and federal regulations to help prevent these incidents from happening. Unfortunately, careless or negligent operations and training often result in explosion incidents.
When an explosion occurs, the damage is not limited to the perimeter of the area immediately adjacent to the incident. The force of an explosion will push outward and send debris flying in many directions. This can damage nearby businesses, homes, and vehicles. One of the most common types of property damage caused by an explosion is damage to nearby roofs and walls.
However, explosions can also cause other types of property damage that are not as easy to identify. For example, depending on the type of explosion that occurred, the adjacent property could be contaminated with various toxins or hazardous chemicals that are released into the air when the explosion occurs. This can adversely affect the water and ground quality of the nearby property.
The total amount of compensation available in property damage from explosion claims will vary depending on the specific factors surrounding each particular incident. Businesses that are damaged will typically turn to business interruption claims, and homeowners can take legal action to reclaim money spent repairing their homes as well as the costs spent to accommodate temporary living conditions. Under most circumstances, if it can be proven the damage to the property was caused by an explosion, then you will be able to take legal action to recover compensation.
