Types of Explosion Injuries
The proximity of victims to the explosion and other environmental factors often determine how bad injuries suffered are. Often, people at an explosion are killed. Others may suffer serious burn injuries. In addition to the physical damage, people who experience an explosion also tend to suffer psychological and emotional trauma.
Some of the common injuries suffered in explosions include:
Recovering from these types of serious injuries isn't only physically challenging, but can also be expensive. Many victims of explosions are left to cope with lifelong disabilities, permanent scarring, and disfigurement.
Protecting Your Rights After an Explosion Burn Injury in Washington
Explosions can be caused by a number of common products, such as LP-gas, liquid petroleum, propane gas, gasoline, natural gas, aerosol spray cans, broken furnaces, and defective household appliances. Explosion injuries can result from a car crash or a workplace accident. There are many potential contributing factors whenever an explosion happens, and the resulting injuries are often catastrophic.
Victims of burn injuries caused by explosions can seek financial compensation for their losses by filing a personal injury claim. But, explosion-related claims are more complex than other types of injury claims. The science, facts, and laws relevant to explosion accidents are complex. It often takes a team of dedicated investigators and other experts to pinpoint the cause of a catastrophic explosion.
Prompt preservation of evidence and investigation may be necessary to protect your legal options. If you were injured on the job, compensation may be available for your medical bills, and lost wages through workers' compensation benefits. If the explosion happened because of a defective product, the manufacturer of the faulty product can be held accountable with a product liability or third-party claim. There are many potentially liable parties you may hold accountable for your suffering.
