Why Hire a Tampa Gas Explosion Accident Lawyer?

A variety of factors can influence the cause of a gas explosion. Not all attorneys are experienced in handling such claims, and so they may not know how to properly analyze each aspect of a gas explosion case to determine the liable party, and from there, how to successfully prove liability. Our Tampa personal injury lawyer has handled gas explosion cases in the past, and he has the skill and knowledge needed to do effectively the same for you.

Common Causes of Gas Explosions

  • Failure on the part of landlords or homeowners to ensure that all gas appliances are regularly inspected and maintained
  • Unaddressed pipe leaks
  • Unaddressed valve leaks
  • The improper installation of gas appliances, such as furnaces, water heaters, and more
  • Negligent appliance design/assembly
  • Insufficient venting of propane tanks
  • Improper disposal of propane tanks
  • Negligently designed, maintained, or unsafely-stored fuel tanks in the workplace

Proving Negligence

The type of personal injury claim you pursue after sustaining a gas explosion injury largely depends on the specific party responsible. For example, if a property owner (e.g. your landlord) failed to adequately maintain a boiler or another appliance that uses gas (especially if we can prove that he or she ignored certain obvious warning signs), and the appliance exploded, injuring you and causing you to sustain significant damages as a result, there is a very good chance that we will file a premises liability claim. However, if you were injured by an appliance that was either negligently manufactured or designed, such as a poorly-designed boiler part, then we will most likely file a product liability claim. In other cases, our firm may even discover that your injury was a result of negligence on the part of a gas and utility provider. For this reason, you need a Tampa gas explosion accident lawyer who can accurately assess your situation and work to hold the liable party accountable for their actions.

Recovering Compensation

As with all personal injury claims, the goal is to obtain financial compensation to help cover the cost of damages. While of course, those injured in gas explosions often incur significant economic damages, such as the cost of multiple surgeries, the cost of missed paychecks from being unable to return to work, and more, in many cases, explosion accident victims also sustain significant non-economic damages as the result of their accident, such as disfigurement, pain and suffering, and more. We are here to fight for the full compensation to which you are entitled.
