How to pursue compensation for victims of natural gas explosions in homes and businesses.

Natural gas is the largest source of electricity generation in the United States, and accounts for a significant portion of residential and industrial energy use. Millions of Americans rely on natural gas. 

Natural gas is a flammable substance commonly used for heating, cooking, and powering appliances in homes and businesses. When a natural gas leak occurs, it can create an explosive atmosphere if ignited by a spark or flame. The consequences of a natural gas explosion can be devastating, resulting in property damage, serious injuries, and even fatalities.

Common Injuries Due to Natural Gas Explosions

      1. Blast Lung:This is the most common fatal injury in explosions and occurs when the pressure wave damages the air-filled organs like lungs, causing internal bleeding and respiratory failure.
      2. Barotrauma:The pressure wave can also rupture eardrums, damage inner ear structures, and even cause concussions.
      3. Internal Injuries:The pressure wave can damage internal organs like the liver, spleen, and intestines, leading to bleeding and life-threatening complications.
      4. Burn Injuries: Natural gas explosions create intense heat, leading to severe burns across various body parts. The severity can range from first-degree to third-degree burns, requiring extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation.
      5. Flying Debris: Explosions propel debris at high speeds, causing penetrating wounds, fractures, and even amputations. Shrapnel from shattered objects and building materials can cause significant trauma.
      6. Impact Injuries: The force of the blast can throw victims against objects, resulting in blunt force trauma like bone fractures, spinal cord injuries, and head injuries.

How to pursue compensation for Oil, Gas, and Chemical Injury Survivors and seek the medical treatment they deserve. 

The United States has become one of the largest oil producers in the world. Thousands of Americans support their families by working in the petrochemical industry.

Tragically, many companies are lax with basic safety standards or fail to train workers in safety precautions. ’When work accidents happen, some companies fail to take responsibility. The injured worker is stuck with medical bills, lost wages, and no way to support their family. 

Common Oil, Gas, and Chemical Worker Injuries

      1. Burn injuries: blistering, scarring, first-degree burns, second-degree burns, and third-degree burns. 
      2. Bone injuries: broken bones, shattered bones, hairline fractures, compound fractures. 
      3. Head injuries: skull damage, facial damage and/or lacerations, traumatic brain injuries, concussions. 
      4. Back injuries: paralysis, spinal cord injuries, herniated discs, whiplash, and sciatica.
      5. Limb and extremity injuries: leg and arm amputations, finger and toe amputation, mobility issues, temporary or permanent damage to all limbs and/or extremities. 
      6. Chemical exposure: inhalation, cancer exposure, chemical burns, and vision damage.

        Petrochemical workers may be able to pursue financial compensation from their employer or other negligent parties after an accident. An oil field accident lawyer can help determine who is responsible for your injuries and how much compensation you deserve.
