The effects of fire and explosions can be tragic, often causing loss of property and money, sometimes causing injury or death. In these cases, victims and their families may be entitled to financial compensation for their loss if the fire or explosion was caused by someone else’s negligence.


Fires and explosions can be caused by many things, including hazards in the workplace and the home. Some common causes of fires and explosions include:

  • Boiler Explosions
  • Dust Explosions
  • Fuel Tank Explosions
  • Industrial Explosions
  • Natural Gas Explosions
  • Petroleum Explosions
  • Propane Explosions
  • Refinery Explosions
  • Residential Gas Explosions
  • Faulty Electrical Work


If you or someone you know is involved in a fire or explosion, seek immediate medical attention. Once you have been cleared by a medical professional, take photos of the scene and identify witnesses.

Next, select a lawyer who has experience with fire and explosion cases. Discuss your legal options with your attorney and take legal action if it is warranted.

The internet has many resources from which an individual may be able to glean valuable information about the law or legal process. However, self-education does not parallel the worth of real-life experience. In the case of a fire or explosion injury lawsuit, information found on the web may be a good resource for background information. This does not mean that a person is actually prepared to handle the procedural and evidentiary minutiae of a case.

The process of filing a claim and arguing a case is far from straightforward and often requires the extensive knowledge and experience that only an attorney has. These claims can be the difference between financial stability and ruin for many families who are faced with substantial medical bills.

In every state, there is a time limit known as the statute of limitations that limits the amount of time a person has to file a lawsuit after suffering an injury or illness. In fire or explosions cases the deadline can be be extremely short, sometimes one year or less.

Additionally, fire and explosion cases may involve physical evidence that needs to be preserved and examined. As a result, fire and explosion cases should be commenced as soon as possible.

Fire and explosion cases may cause injuries to many people in a variety of ways. The initial explosion may cause severe burn injuries to those in the immediate area, as well as blast injuries and injuries from flying debris. Others in the building or around the area of the explosion can be injured as fires spread or buildings collapse. Anyone injured in these catastrophic events may wish to consider pursuing compensation for their suffering. Also, the injured may be represented by family members in certain situations.
