Propane is a useful natural gas that many people burn to heat their homes and power their appliances. In order to get propane to people’s homes, the gas is often stored in tanks and transported by commercial truck or railroad.
Due to the highly volatile nature of propane, it is important that is it carefully transported. If you or someone you love suffered injuries in an explosion resulting from the improper transport of propane, contact the dangerous transportation lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at (414) 271-0900 to discuss your legal rights.
Before being transported, propane tanks should be thoroughly inspected for flaws and leaks. Because of its flammability, propane could ignite on a motor vehicle or railroad if the tanks holding the gas are not properly sealed, as these vehicles often produce great amounts of heat.
In addition to the tanks being in proper working order, the vehicle transporting the tanks must also be mechanically sound. A faulty vehicle may be at a greater risk for an accident. In the event of an accident, propane could be placed in conditions that make it more prone to exploding.
Individuals who have been injured because of negligent propane transportation practices should speak with an experienced lawyer to learn if they may be entitled to financial compensation.
Propane explosions can have devastating effects for those in the blast radius.
