A San Antonio man was saved by two neighbors after an explosion at his home set it on fire. The explosion happened late Sunday night, according to firefighters, and by the time they arrived the home was fully engulfed in flames. The man was taken to a nearby hospital, where he’s being treated for extensive burns.
After an investigation, fire officials have said it’s likely that a gas leak caused the fire. The home is totally destroyed, and a portion of the home next door was damaged. CPS Energy has been called to dig up the gas line to cap it.
Types of Explosions and Burn Injuries
According to our attorneys, LP or propane gas explosions aren’t accidents. Whether they occurred in a home or a vehicle, we’ve learned through years of experience that explosions are typically caused by manufacturing defects and negligence by the companies that produce them.
We’ve successfully represented clients who have been injured in the following types of explosions:
- RV explosions
- Mobile home explosions
- Natural gas explosions
- Camper propane explosions
Explosions can be caused by natural leaks, faulty detectors, or a lack of properly installed flame failure devices. Our team of explosion injury attorneys can investigate the scene of the accident and use our resources to pinpoint the exact cause, as well as who may be liable for damages.
If you’ve been injured in an explosion, chances are your burn injuries are serious. We’ve helped victims who have received thermal burns, electrical burns, propane burns, chemical burns, natural gas burns, and industrial burns. If you’ve been injured in an explosion, chances are, your burns are serious – the more serious they are, the more expensive they can be to treat.
Serious burns may cost thousands of dollars to treat through the following options:
- Intravenous fluid
- Skin grafts or flap procedures
How Our Team Can Help
Most individuals don’t plan for a devastating accident and thus don’t have the funds to pay for a life-saving surgery or hospital stay. As if suffering from the pain of your burns isn’t challenging enough, many victims find themselves in crippling debt from medical bills, lost wages from missing work, and property damage caused by the explosion or fire. Some even have to quit their job altogether if their injuries produce disabilities, losing their only source of income.
If your injuries were caused by the negligence of another, such as a manufacturing company, you deserve to be compensated properly for your suffering. No one should have to be burned as the result of another’s carelessness.
