Definition of a Gas Explosion

A gas explosion is the result of a gas leak that has combined with an ignition source. Gas explosions can cause a massive thermal burn injury to anyone in the vicinity. Equipment or pipes, buildings or offshore facilities, enclosed or open spaces & all of these can harbor a gas explosion. They often occur in industrial or agricultural settings, but as many people use natural and propane gas, the risk of burn injury in a domestic negligence situation is high as well. Our South Carolina burn injury lawyer will examine your case and help you file every claim you may have.

Causes of Gas Explosions

Gas explosions are often attributed to negligence and may be caused by code violations, violations of standards or safe practices, minimal to nonexistent public information regarding the handling of gas by consumers, or defective products. Ventilation may be inadequate; gas lines may have been installed improperly. In some cases, the gas may not have been odorized (odor must be added to natural and propane gas as a safety precaution to warn people that gas is present).
