Severe Injuries Caused by Gas Explosions
Propane gas, the most common kind of natural gas used in homes, trailers, and
RVs, is often supplied an odorant known as ethyl mercaptan so it is detectable.

people who are hurt by a gas explosion still never have any warning. While
doing something completely routine, such as switching on their stovetop

It is not uncommon for a gas explosion to be so strong that it causes the
death of a victim. When a
wrongful death has occurred, surviving family members may be able to pursue compensation
for their loss of companionship in their own lawsuit.

Recovering from a gas explosion is a costly experience. Medical procedures,
such as skin grafting, can cost thousands upon thousands of dollars. The
property that was damaged may not be entirely covered by insurance policies,
requiring the victim to find payment in their own finances. The undue
hardship and the fear of another unpredictable gas explosion occurring
can cause emotional distress that imposes unique limitations.
