Explosions are often the result of combustible gases or chemicals coming in contact with fire, electrical sparks or high heat. Explosions in the work environment can occur in industrial environments, on construction sites, in vehicle accidents or anywhere else combustible gases or chemicals are stored.
When explosion injuries such as chemical exposure and burn injuries are caused by negligence, victims may be able to recover significant compensation for past, present and future damages suffered as a result of injuries. Family members of victims killed in explosions may be able to recover wrongful death benefits, which may include compensation for funeral expenses, medical expenses, loss of companionship, loss of income, and pain and suffering experienced by the deceased prior to death.
At Reich & Binstock LLP, in Houston, we understand that it is rare for financial compensation to fully repair all sense of loss and to completely heal all wounds. However, securing the maximum compensation that you deserve for losses and damages can also help you cope with loss, traumatic memories and disfigurement. It can help you avoid medical debt, bridge the gap until you can get back to work and provide financial stability for your future.
