As a Dallas-Fort Worth property damage and personal injury lawyer, I know that one of the most devastating accidents which can result in both catastrophic building damage and severe injuries is a gas explosion.
Gas explosions can occur as a result of a leaky gas line which either delivers cooking gas to a home of business or as a result of a leaky commercial or industrial pipeline near the property, that somehow leaks the flammable gas into the property. When something ignites the gas, an explosion occurs.
Fortunately, buildings destroyed by gas explosions are not overly common, however, according to data collected by the Pipeline & Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) there are on average 522 such incidents nationwide each year. Gas explosions cause more than $300,000,000 worth of property damage annually.
If your house or business property has been destroyed by a gas explosion, it is important that you consult with an experienced Texas gas explosion lawyer – especially if someone was injured in the gas explosion.
In addition to making a potentially very expensive claim against your own insurance, it is probable that you will find yourself having to make a claim against the negligent gas company who is found at fault for the explosion. Making a successful claim against the gas company who is to blame is a notoriously difficult process, so it is critical that you hire a competent and experience attorney to represent you from the very beginning.
