Cases We Handle
Many gas explosions are the result of inadequate maintenance, improper cleaning techniques, defective components such as valves and couplings, and poor training.

Explosions result in catastrophic burns from resulting fires, scarring, broken limbs, brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and death. People injured in explosions often need substantial recovery time, losing income while they are away from work. Injured people with serious burns are at risk for infection and require lengthy hospital stays. They may require reconstructive surgery. Refinery explosion victims often have many injuries, causing significant pain and suffering. Those who survive with serious brain trauma or spinal cord injury may never work again.
