Common Causes Of Explosion and Fire Accidents In Florida

Understanding the cause of an explosion or fire accident is critical to pursuing the appropriate avenue for recovering compensation for your injuries and other losses. Some common causes of explosion and fire accidents in Florida include — but are not limited to — the following:

  • Faulty electrical wiring
  • Defective smoke detectors
  • Construction vehicle fires
  • Chemical leaks
  • Poorly maintained gas lines
  • Improper storage of chemicals
  • Defective propane tanks
  • Welding accidents 

Construction work is particularly hazardous due to the size, weight, and type of equipment that is used on a regular basis. Gas lines are known to set off explosions and cause severe damage and injury, and even a simple spark from a tool can ignite chemicals that were not stored properly. At Lawlor, White & Murphey, our accident attorneys are experienced and knowledgeable in handling all types of fire and explosion accidents. Our skilled team investigates the accident to determine the cause, building solid cases that hold any at-fault party accountable for their negligence.

Frequently Asked Questions About Explosion and Fire Accident Injuries In Florida

FAQ: Why are explosion and fire accident claims more complicated than other accident injury claims?

Explosion and fire accident claims can be more complicated than other accident injury claims because the nature of the accident destroys the evidence. Charred, burnt, melted materials often remain after an explosion or fire accident and this makes determining the cause of the accident as well as liability for the accident difficult. Attorneys at Lawlor, White & Murphey are experienced at handling explosion and fire accident injury claims; schedule a free case evaluation with a member of our team today.

FAQ: I sustained severe burn injuries in a construction accident explosion and have experienced emotional pain and suffering as a result. Can I recover compensation for damages such as these?

To recover compensation for emotional pain and suffering, you must file a personal injury claim. Personal injury law protects injured victims who have sustained a variety of losses, including losses such as these that are non-monetary. The Florida court takes into consideration all aspects of a personal injury claim to assign a value to those losses that are immeasurable.
