Gas Explosion Causes

Most gas explosions are caused by an undiagnosed problem with a propane tank, gas line, or a home or business appliance. When a gas line is involved, there may be a claim against the gas company, or against another company that ruptured a pipeline, and/or against a landlord or other kind of building owner. Explosions involving a gas appliance may be caused by a defect in the appliance, or by a mistake made by a company that serviced or installed the appliance.

Propane Leak Lawsuit

Propane can leak from a tank incorrectly filled, improperly installed, or poorly maintained.

Line Explosion

Most LP or natural gas explosion cases involve a rupture or leak in a natural gas transmission pipeline in a residential area. A ruptured pipeline can lead to a gas leak that can develop into a catastrophic gas explosion and/or fire. Injured parties can seek compensation for injuries, wrongful deaths, and/or property damage as a result of a pipeline rupture or leak.

Exploding Appliances

Any appliance can malfunction and cause dangerous gas accumulation, including:

  • air conditioning unit
  • central heater
  • dryer
  • gas lights
  • generator
  • space heater
  • outdoor grill
  • oven
  • pool heater
  • water heater

Third Party Liability

Not every gas line explosion is the responsibility of the gas service company, the product manufacturer, or the installer. A cable or construction company working near a gas line can be responsible for a gas explosion, if they have failed to properly train their employees to detect gas lines and prevent damages or leaks, or failed to exercise proper caution near gas lines.

Liable Parties

Liability (legal responsibility) for damages attributable to a malfunctioning appliance could fall on one or more parties:

  • Company supplying gas
  • Company that installed or repaired the appliance
  • Appliance seller
  • Appliance maker
  • Appliance distributor
  • Third party working near a gas line

Gas Explosion Lawsuit Lawyer

Lawyers at our firm thoroughly investigate petrochemical, natural gas, or propane (LP) gas explosion cases. We pursue claims against all responsible parties. Our gas explosion lawyers handle explosion cases involving a house, apartment building, workplace, restaurant, or other locations of building explosions.

Natural Gas Safety Tips

Natural gas has no odor of its own, so companies add an odorant as a warning precaution. This odor smells terrible in order to immediately indicate a possible gas leak. Anyone who smells gas should follow some basic safety tips to avoid potentially catastrophic injury.

If you smell gas:

  • Alert others and leave immediately
  • Don’t switch on a light
  • Don’t light a match
  • Don’t use your phone
  • Call the gas utility from a neighbor’s house or other location
  • Tell the gas utility where you are so you can let them in your abandoned house
