Common Causes of Explosion Accidents

Explosive accidents can occur in several work environments for a variety of reasons including gas, battery, and chemical combustion.

Gas

A gas explosion occurs when a gas leak combines with air in the presence of an ignition source. Many buildings use gas as a source of power. Typically in household explosions, the main gases involved are methane, butane, propane, and natural gas. Meanwhile, industrial blasts stem from many other gases including hydrogen, evaporated gasoline, and ethanol.

When a residential or workplace explosion accident happens, it’s essential that your landlord, gas company, or state agency properly investigate the cause of the incident. If the accident resulted from a person or entity’s negligence, you might be entitled to financial compensation.

Battery

There have been significant enhancements in lithium battery technology in the past decade. These batteries are the preferred power source for a range of consumer products like cell phones, e-cigarettes, vapes, laptops, and other electronic devices. Unfortunately, these batteries are also volatile and could cause an explosion accident when exposed to extreme conditions.

Smaller objects near batteries can explode and result in chemical burns, significant scarring, and disfigurement. Moreover, when larger cells,like car batteries, blow, they can blind people or cause severe physical damages.

If a faulty battery was the cause of an explosion accident, the designer, manufacturer, or other associated parties could be held liable for damages. In these cases, filing a personal injury lawsuit can help you get the financial compensation you need.

Chemical

Flammable chemicals are common in oil refineries, chemical plants, and other industrial complexes. In these environments, the employer/company must ensure safe working conditions for their employees to avoid dangerous accidents. Failure to do so can cause catastrophic damage, severe injuries, and unnecessary death.

If you sustained an injury in a chemical plant explosion, the Kent Spence Law Firm could help you file a personal injury claim. For years we have fought for workers to ensure that they receive the financial compensation they need to recover.
