Santa Clarita Explosion Accident Lawyers
Representation for Catastrophically Injured Victims
If you were severely burned or otherwise injured in an explosion accident, an experienced attorney can help you fight to receive the compensation you deserve, whether the accident involved a steam explosion, manhole explosion, or chemical explosion. These accidents can result in severe injuries, including catastrophic burns that are extremely painful and even debilitating. Burn victims face extreme pain and possible disfigurement, leading to extended, ongoing rehabilitation. Most people who suffer from these injuries also need counseling due to the trauma of the accident.
At the Law Offices of C. Ray Carlson, our Santa Clarita explosion accident attorneys help victims who have suffered devastating injuries in fires, explosions, and similar traumatic events. Whether you were injured at work, in an auto accident, or due to using a defective product, our team is ready to fight for you and your recovery. We serve clients in Valencia, Santa Clarita, Stevenson Ranch, the San Fernando Valley, and all of the surrounding areas.
How Do Explosions Happen & Who Is to Blame?
While some explosions occur entirely without warning, most are preventable. Ultimately, when the source of an explosion is traced, it is not uncommon to find that it resulted from some form of negligence, be it a poorly made product or simple human error.
Some of the most common causes of explosion accidents include:
- Defective Products: Defective product design, manufacturing, and distribution can lead to a fire or even an explosion.
- Motor Vehicle Accidents: When there is a motor vehicle accident, there’s a risk of explosion, especially if the gasoline or electrical parts of a car are involved.
- Structural Fires: These types of fires are often due to poor construction, faulty wiring, or building code violations.
- Construction Accidents: Either because of improper safety codes, OSHA violations, or a malfunction, explosions often occur on construction sites and warehouses.
Liability in an explosion accident generally rests with the negligent party. The manufacturer of a defective product that caused the explosion could be held legally liable; a construction company that failed to abide by state or county building codes could be responsible for a fire or explosion resulting from these violations, and so on.
Why Do You Need an Explosion Accident Attorney?
One minute you’re working in your office and the next you’re flying across the room from an unexpected and seriously damaging explosion accident. Whether you suffered severe burns or other injuries, this accident has nothing to do with you whatsoever and, yet, you are facing the many consequences associated with it.
In these situations, it may be hard to know what to do next or how to handle the situation in the best way possible. However, by choosing to hire a local attorney in the Valencia area, you can focus on what really matters and leave the rest to the professionals.
You Probably Don’t Know How to Handle an Explosion Accident
Unlike other accidents out there, explosion accidents are rarely expected or prepared for. Because of this, it’s likely that you don’t know how to handle the aftermath of this accident. By contacting an accident attorney, and working with them on the case, you can learn exactly what to do after the incident to streamline the process and get back to living your life.
Your Attorney Will Take Over Evidence and Story Compilation
One of the first things your attorney will likely ask you to do is compile evidence of the explosion scene, your injuries, and other damaged items at the scene belonging to you. For instance, if the accident happened due to a faulty gas line in your office space, you will want to take pictures of your desk and computer to document their damage as well. All of this will be used to solidify your compensation request later.
From there, the rest will be taken over by your attorney, leaving you to focus on recovery as they do the hard work.
You May be Entitled to Compensation for Your Injuries
If your injuries and damages sustained are bad enough, you will be entitled to some form of compensation. In most cases, the compensation amount is three times the damages done, to help you pay for any additional time lost recovering. A qualified attorney will be able to get the most out of this situation for you, which is yet another reason why working with an explosion accident attorney is so crucial.
