San Mateo Explosion and Fire-Related Injury Lawyer

Few injuries can be as severe as those resulting from fires and explosions. No matter the size or scope of the incident, all fires and explosions have the potential to cause catastrophic damage such as disfigurement, severe and chronic pain, and scarring. If the accident resulted from faulty wiring, a defective product, a negligible person, or any other at-fault party, you may have the right to pursue financial compensation to pay for any lost wages, medical bills, and psychological trauma associated with the accident. If you or a family member face injuries from a fire or explosion, it’s crucial that you seek legal representation as soon as possible.

Find out how we can help you by contacting us today.

What Causes Explosions in California?

There are a wide variety of reasons why explosions occur. One of the most common is a negligible party attempting to cut costs. For example, explosions can result from the failure to properly ground equipment, not properly installing fittings, or the failure to protect lines or pipes during construction work. Some other common causes of fires and explosions include the following:

  • A faulty smoke detector causing a delay in warning
  • Blocked or improperly labeled emergency exits
  • Faulty electrical wiring
  • Decaying gas lines and faulty propane tanks
  • Defective electronics

Fire and explosion lawsuits can involve multiple parties, including contractors responsible for wiring, gas, and propane, building owners, and defective product manufacturers. Because of the complex nature of these cases, it’s crucial that you hire an attorney who knows fire and explosion case law inside and out. Help is right around the corner at Danko Meredith.
