Natural gas goes through a procedure of being extracted from the ground, processed into several different gases, transported to destinations across the nation, and distributed to our homes and retail centers. Throughout this long process, a simple gas leak may provide just enough fuel to cause a major catastrophe.
Gas leaks can happen during any stage of the natural gas manufacturing process and may have devastating effects. If you or someone you love suffered injuries or burns after a natural gas leak led to an explosion, contact the natural gas leak lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at (414) 271-0900.
Gas leaks may occur for a number of reasons in a number of places. Most often, leaks are caused by a faulty gas line installation or a failure to monitor and inspect gas pipes. In both cases, negligence may be to blame for explosions and injuries resulting from the leak.
Gas companies are typically responsible for monitoring lines and pipes. Depending on which specific process suffers the leak, the gas company may be the one that is extracting the gas, processing it, transporting it, or distributing it.
Before pursuing legal action, it is important for injury victim to consult with an experienced attorney so that blame can be assigned to the correct party.
