Gas Explosions

Improperly maintained gas lines can be extremely dangerous.  All it takes is a small spark – a lit cigarette, a candle, even a cell phone – to cause a deadly explosion.  Every year, Americans are killed and injured in gas explosions.

Residential gas explosions have occurred under a wide variety of circumstances, including:

  • Houses
  • Apartment complexes
  • Condominiums
  • Mobile homes
  • Hotels

If you’ve been injured or worse in a residential gas explosion, it may not be your fault.  Improper maintenance is often the cause for these explosions, and the professionals you rely on may be held responsible.  It may be your legal right to seek compensation
