Accidents related to a fire or explosion can be some of the most unexpected and devastating experiences that can occur in a person’s life. The effects can be tragic and can often cause a massive loss of money and lives. These events can result in injury, property damage and even death. If you or a loved one have experienced injury, property damage or death from an explosion or fire, you may be entitled to compensation.

COMMON CAUSES OF FIRE OR EXPLOSION

The investigation into the actual cause of an explosion or fire involves complex analysis into the origins and causes. Explosions and fires may be caused by a multitude of factors, but experts have found that common causes of explosions and fires include, but are not limited to the following:

  • DEFECTIVE PRODUCTS SUCH AS FAULTY ELECTRICAL APPLIANCES
  • GAS LEAKS
  • GRAIN & INDUSTRIAL DUST
  • AUTO ACCIDENTS
  • AVIATION ACCIDENTS
  • ARSON

We understand that, even before the smoke clears, it is imperative to implement a thorough, documented investigation so no stone is left unturned. Identifying the cause and potential liability associated with a fire or explosion can be extremely specific and requires a thorough understanding of complicated sciences. Sometimes, the apparent cause may seem obvious at the outset, but a targeted investigation may yield information contrary to what is initially believed to be the case.

BURN INJURIES

Burn injuries are one of the most painful and traumatic injuries that a person can suffer. Second degree or third degree burn injuries can require long term hospitalization, multiple skin grafting operations, and long term psychological counseling to be able to cope with the emotional and physical trauma of this terrible experience. Permanent scarring, especially on the face or hands, is especially difficult to accept. The effect on the victim’s family is likewise devastating and permanent scars are a constant reminder of the traumatic accident. Burn injuries may cause wounds and scars that require plastic and reconstructive surgery. Scar revisions and soft tissue reconstruction are often necessary procedures utilized in restoring the appearance and/or comfort of burn victims. Other procedures used to treat burn injuries include:

  • SKIN GRAFTS
  • TRANSPLANTS
  • SURGICAL RECONSTRUCTION
  • MICROSURGERY
  • ENDOSCOPIC SURGERY
