Natural gas is one of the most commonly used fuel sources in the United States.  Every year, Americans use about 657 billion cubic meters of natural gas in a variety of fields, from home use to agriculture and industry.  We use natural gas every day of our lives.  When used responsibly and with the proper precautions, natural gas is a clean, safe, and effective fuel source.  But when it’s not respected, it can become very dangerous.

Natural Gas Explosions in the Workplace

Natural gas is used for a variety of purposes in a wide range of industries, from agriculture to power generation to the service industry and beyond.  Many workers have to use natural gas on a daily basis.  If their employers do not follow the appropriate safety measures, they could be at risk for serious injury or even death.

Natural gas is highly combustible, and leaks can be incredibly dangerous.  Even a small spark from a cell phone or a passing car can cause leaked gas to violently explode.  Leaks can occur in a number of ways, such as:

  • Improperly maintained pipes
  • Broken seals
  • Loose valves

When a gas explosion occurs at the workplace, the employer may ultimately be to blame for creating a dangerous work environment.  If you or someone you love has been injured in a workplace gas explosion, contact the explosion injury attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® by calling 800-242-2874 today.

Natural Gas Explosions at Home

Gas explosions can just as easily occur in your home.  If you notice a gas leak, you should immediately leave the house and contact your gas company from a neighbor’s house.  Even if a gas explosion occurs in your home, it may not be your fault.  The gas company may not have maintained the lines properly or there may be a construction flaw with your house that caused the leak.  At Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® we may be able to provide you with the information you need when your home has been damaged by a natural gas explosion.
