Catastrophic Gas Explosions and Flash Fires

Gas Line & Plant Explosions

Since 1946, injured clients and the families of wrongful death victims have counted on the lawyers of GRG to help them through tragic events like gas explosions. We begin our investigation and evidence-gathering as soon as we are retained, and we do everything we can to obtain the best result possible for every client. Gray Ritter Graham has extensive experience in the investigation and pursuit of cases arising from explosive flash fires. The firm is well versed in the intricacies of water-heater flame arrestors and the migration of flammable vapors from adhesives and other heavier than air flammables that can lead to flash fires. In past cases the firm has been successful in pursuing appliance manufacturers and chemical manufacturers for their failure to properly design, label and market products that have caused explosions. Thorough investigations into the cause and origin of fires, federal labeling laws, and product design have led to successful results for clients of Gray Ritter Graham.

Types of Gas Explosions and Flash Fires

When gas explosions occur in the context of industrial product liability cases, the causes can range from:

  • Plant explosions
  • Gas generator explosions
  • Underground gas line explosions
  • Industrial vehicle gas explosions
  • Explosions caused by gas leaks
  • Flash fires caused by water heaters and adhesives

Whatever the cause, our attorneys will fully investigate your case. This is important because key evidence must be obtained before an explosion scene is cleared. Also, potential defendants in gas explosion cases begin their investigation very quickly, and it is important that the explosion victim or victim's family also conduct a prompt investigation.

If a natural gas explosion caused you injuries or the loss of a loved one, tell us what happened.
