- Causes of fires and explosions: Fires and explosions can result from different hazards, many of which are caused by another person's negligence, carelessness, or recklessness. Hazardous chemicals, coal dust, dangerous electrical configurations, propane and natural gas storage, and other hazards are often to blame.
- Standards of care: When dealing with hazardous materials that can lead to fires and explosions, rigid guidelines are provided from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) with regards to their handling, storage, transportation, identification, marking, and even training for individuals working with or interacting with such materials. If these standards are not met, a negligence claim can likely be advanced against offending companies and individuals.
- Dust explosions: When a significant number of dust particles collects, according to OSHA, rapid combustion and fires can occur, when exposed to an open heat source. When this combustion occurs indoors, the intense pressure that results can lead to a deadly explosion.
When there is a fire or an explosion, especially at work, or at a restaurant or theater, the negligence of an individual or company is to blame. Sometimes, the risk of injury or death is compounded by further negligence such as nonexistent or ineffective evacuation plans, blocked exits, and other negligent or reckless acts. We launch the most thorough investigation possible to determine any and all at-fault parties. We will hold any negligent or reckless party accountable for your injuries or wrongful death.
