Explosion injuries are not a fact of life-or the workplace. They do not happen to everyone at one point or another and when they do happen it is often due to negligence within the company. Those who have suffered from explosion injuries no longer need to suffer alone and it is important that companies who have failed to comply to industry standards be held responsible for the injuries, or death, that their negligence has caused. If you have been a victim of any type of explosion injuries, it is important to speak to an attorney who can help fight for your rights to recoup lost wages and expenses caused by these accidents.
Examples Of Explosion Injuries
Injuries that can occur from accidents related to explosions are burns, scars, death, and more. These are frequently caused by defective products, construction accidents, hotel fires, restaurant fires, industrial accidents, arson related residential fires, and vehicle accidents to name a few. It is important to remember that both the cause of explosion injuries and the injuries that occur from them are preventable.
As previously mentioned, companies are expected to meet industry standards when it comes to explosion safety. One regulatory agency that imposes standards on safety, sprinkler systems, and life safety code is the National Fire Prevention Agency (NFPA). You should know that no matter what, companies are required to adhere to all safety standards that are set for by these agencies. Refusal or neglecting to do so can cause serious, sometimes fatal, injury.
From 2006-2010, there were a total of 115 injuries and 2 deaths in restaurant establishments alone due to explosions and fires. If you fall into this statistic, you are not alone and it is not your fault.
