What Types Of Negligence Cause Explosions?
Negligence is often the cause of an explosion incident. However, there are times when “gross negligence” is the reason an explosion occurs. Gross negligence is defined as a lack of diligence or care or even a conscious, voluntary act or omission in reckless disregard for the safety of others. In other words, gross negligence is more than just a mistake someone makes.
There are various ways that gross negligence can cause explosions, with some of the most common including the following:
- Lack of proper employee training. Anytime employees are asked to work around equipment or materials that could cause explosions, they must be properly trained to handle such materials or equipment. If an employer fails to provide this training, they could be held liable for any injuries that occur in an explosion.
- Defective products. If a company or manufacturer knows or has reason to believe that a product is defective, but they do not issue a recall or warning notice to consumers, they could be held liable if an explosion occurs.
- Ignoring maintenance. This includes willfully disregarding regular inspection and maintenance of items that can cause explosions. This can also include knowing of a potential problem that could cause an explosion and failing to remedy it promptly.
- Intentional actions. If anybody willfully and knowingly causes an explosion to occur, they could be held liable both criminally and civilly for their actions.
