Common Causes of Explosions
Our personal injury team knows that explosion accidents can occur in many different workplace environments. We have handled oil refinery explosions, gas truck explosions, and chemical leak explosions, to name a few.
Explosions can be the result of the following:
- Built-up air pressure
- Volatile gases
- Flammable liquids
- Other situations where incendiary materials are involved
Regardless of the environment in which your accident occurred, an explosion is often the result of someone's careless or reckless behavior. This is known as negligence, and as a victim who has suffered serious injuries in an explosion, this may play a vital role in your ability to secure financial compensation for all of the losses and expenses involved in your recovery.
Pursuing Compensation for Serious Injuries
At Mitchell & Danoff Law Firm, our injury lawyers in the San Jose believe that nothing is more important to our clients than their full recovery of health. Filing a successful injury claim for financial compensation plays an essential part of this, because it not only facilitates a full recovery by seeking all necessary medical attention, it also relieves the financial burden that often comes in the wake of these serious accidents.
Explosions often lead to serious burn injuries from fires and chemicals. Inhalation of smoke and toxic fumes may result in catastrophic injuries that take years to recover from. Tragically, some explosion accidents result in fatal injuries that leave a family grieving for the sudden loss of a loved one. Legal protection from a skilled attorney may help you and your loved ones build a better future.

Should I hire a lawyer for my personal injury case?There are several reasons for hiring a lawyer to represent you in your personal injury claim, rather than representing yourself. 1.)

By hiring a skilled personal injury attorney to research your case and represent you in court, your chances of success improve drastically.
How long will my personal injury case take to resolve?
This number can vary from one case to another, depending on the details of your situation. A lawsuit can take anywhere from several months to several years to settle.

The maximum amount that may be recovered is $250,000. All other Personal Injury cases are not subject to any cap.
