Gas Explosions and Burn Injuries
Gas explosions occur in a variety of circumstances after liquid propane (LP) gas or natural gas accumulates in a structure. Once an amount of combustible gas accumulates, the smallest spark (match, lighter, or electrical switch) will cause an explosion and fire. Gas can accumulate in a structure in a variety of ways. A gas-powered appliance can leak gas, a gas pipeline can leak, or a gas line that is not properly capped or otherwise shut off can leak gas.
The delivery of gas and installation of gas appliances are heavily regulated activities. However, experience shows that in more rural areas, the regulations are often ignored or not fully followed by gas suppliers. The result can be catastrophic explosions and fires resulting in serious injury and death.
If you are a victim of a gas explosion:
- Seek medical attention as soon as possible
- Do not allow investigators of the gas supplier, appliance manufacturer or seller on your property without first consulting with an attorney
- Consult with an attorney to insure that the evidence is properly preserved. Preservation of the explosion evidence is vital so that the origin and cause of the explosion can be determined.

If you or your family has been a gas explosion victim anywhere in Illinois, Missouri, or Tennessee, Gavin Law Firm can help determine your rights.

Farm Machinery Accidents
Farming is one of the most dangerous occupations in America, and when a farm machine malfunctions and causes injury or death, the manufacturer of the machine may be liable for the damages caused by the defective machine.
