Injuries & Damages Associated with Explosions
Most explosions, even those on a smaller scale from things such as firecrackers, can cause devastating and lasting injuries. Many people who experience explosive accidents end up with serious injuries, such as:
- Brain damage
- Soft tissue injuries such as concussion, whiplash, etc.
- Damage to internal organs
- Hearing loss
Depending on the nature of the incident, you may also be suffering from mental and emotional injuries, such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, and anxiety.
In addition to forcing you out of work for a time (or even permanently), such injuries could require you to undergo corrective surgeries, long-term rehabilitation, and other costly medical treatments. This can place an unfair burden on you and your loved ones, especially if you are a primary breadwinner in your family. A major bodily injury could put your financial future in jeopardy.
You may be entitled to receive compensation from the party that caused the explosion if it occurred as a result of their negligence or oversight. In such a case, you will need the help of an experienced fire, burn and explosion injury attorney in order to establish liability for your injuries, and make a strong case on your behalf.

Do I need an attorney if I've already been offered a settlement?
The offer you received from the insurance company is almost certainly less than what you are entitled to, by a significant margin. Insurance companies, just like any other business, are structured to maximize their own profits, and in addition to offering a minimal amount in any settlement, they will also commonly employ aggressive tactics against claimants like you to discourage requests for full compensation. We can not only advise you of what your case is really worth, but also provide skilled representation to help you recover damages.
How much is my case worth?
Each personal injury case is unique, and your attorney will consult with you in detail to help you determine the full value of your claim. In any fair settlement, you should expect to receive enough money to cover all your medical bills, from emergency treatment at the scene of the accident to rehabilitative care to help you fully recover. Claims of this nature should also cover the amount of income you will lose due to the injury from missing work or inability to perform on your job, as well as compensation for the pain and suffering you experienced.
How long will it take to resolve my case?
A variety of factors will play into how long it takes to get your insurance settlement, from the availability of evidence to support your claim to how cooperative the insurance company is and how effectively you can prepare your case. At our firm, our legal team takes every case seriously and we will do everything possible to achieve a successful resolution for you. We will also keep you informed throughout the entire process about what you may be up against and how long you can expect your case to take.
