Fires & Explosions

1Fires and explosions can occur on residential, commercial and industrial properties. They can include natural and propane gas explosions, as well as oil, chemical and electric burns.

Gathering evidence on injuries caused by fire or explosion requires experienced and dedicated investigators. This requires diligent research, extensive knowledge of rules and procedures, and the wisdom to collect the right information.

In some cases, fire and explosions are the result of accidents at industrial sites. Determining whether the site’s management followed federal, state and local regulations and took all necessary measures to ensure safety is key to a successful case.
