Smoke Inhalation From Explosions Injury Lawyer

Explosions often lead to catastrophic injuries for victims. While most people think of explosion injuries as being traumatic in nature, there are many secondary exposure issues related to these incidents as well. At the Doan Law Firm, we know that smoke inhalation in the aftermath of an explosion can lead to serious injuries and illnesses for victims. Here, our explosion injury attorneys want to discuss what we can do to help victims and how smoke inhalation affects a person’s health.

What Will Your Attorney Do To Help?

An attorney in the aftermath of an explosion incident is invaluable and will provide the resources necessary to properly determine liability for smoke inhalation injuries. Your attorney will:

  • Investigate any party involved in the incident to determine liability.
  • Work with trusted medical and economic experts to calculate a smoke inhalation victim’s total losses.
  • Negotiate with all parties involved to obtain a fair settlement or prepare the case for trial if necessary.

Smoke Inhalation Can Lead To Serious Health Problems

The reality is that many explosions cause fires and that anybody in the vicinity of a fire caused by an explosion is at risk of smoke inhalation injuries. The smoke after an explosion contains a mixture of heated gases, irritants, particulate matter, asphyxiates, and toxins. Many explosions are caused by chemical reactions or happen at chemical plants, leading to increased risk of injury from smoke inhalation.

Smoke inhalation injuries are a major determinant of morbidity and mortality in victims of explosions. The smoke inhalation can affect any part of a person’s airway and can lead to severe, life-threatening short-term dangers. Smoke inhalation can also cause life-threatening diseases that affect various organs in a person’s body.

There are three physiological types of smoke inhalation injuries:

  1. Thermal injury predominantly to the upper airway
  2. Chemical injury to the upper and lower respiratory tract
  3. Systemic effects of toxic gases contained in the fumes

Unfortunately, smoke inhalation is often ignored in the immediate aftermath of an explosion incident due to the traumatic injuries that are often associated with explosions.
