Defending Explosion Victims in Bexar County

Explosions are one of the most devastating types of accidents that can occur. They can cause catastrophic injuries, including severe burns, shrapnel wounds, and traumatic brain injuries. In some cases, explosions can even be fatal. If you or a loved one has been injured in an explosion, you may be entitled to compensation. An experienced personal injury attorney can help you pursue compensation for your medical expenses, lost income, and pain and suffering.

The attorneys of Alford & Clark Injury Attorneys can help you investigate the cause of an explosion and hold the responsible parties accountable. You should not have to bear the financial burden of someone else's negligence. Whether you were injured because of the negligence of a product manufacturer, a technician who installed equipment incorrectly, a company that failed to perform the proper maintenance, or anyone else who was responsible for an explosion, we can gather the necessary evidence to prove liability, and we will fight on your behalf to ensure that you receive the compensation you deserve.

Causes of Explosion Injuries

Explosions can occur in multiple situations, including:

  • Car accidents and truck wrecks - Following a major collision, a vehicle may catch on fire, and this may cause its gas tank to explode, injuring people in the vehicle or others in the surrounding area. Explosions in crashes involving trucks that were carrying hazardous materials can be especially dangerous, and if a tanker truck explodes, it may cause extensive damage that affects a large area.
  • Appliances - Faulty equipment in a home or other building, such as furnaces and water heaters, can explode, causing injuries to a building's occupants. These explosions may cause major fires, and in addition to inflicting burns and other types of injuries, they may result in extensive property damage.
  • Propane tanks - Leaking or improperly stored propane tanks can lead to explosions that may cause personal injuries, property damage, and even fatalities. Failure to install tanks properly or service tanks when necessary can lead to leaks, increasing the risks of an explosion.
  • Fire pits - Many people have backyard fire pits at their homes, but if they are not constructed properly, these pits may explode and seriously injure people nearby. These explosions can occur if the wrong materials were used to construct a fire pit, such as concrete that traps water, increasing the likelihood that it will explode when heated up.
  • Chemical spills - When chemicals are not properly stored or handled, they may combust and cause explosions that result in serious injuries for people working with the chemicals or others in the area.
  • Industrial accidents - In industries such as oil and gas, chemical plants, and construction, explosions can occur because of the improper use of hazardous materials or the failure to properly maintain equipment. These types of accidents often result in severe injuries, and they may even lead to fatalities. In a workplace accident, injured employees may be able to receive workers' compensation benefits. However, if an employer is a non-subscriber, an injury victim may seek compensation from an employer or other parties who acted negligently and put them at risk.
