Gas plays a huge role in our everyday lives. From summer barbecues to winter heating, it has a helpful presence during all seasons in a variety of situations. Unfortunately, the very people gas benefits can suffer lasting harm if it is not controlled properly.
Over time, gas can build up and spark fires or even explosions. These incidents can cause devastating property damage. They also prompt injuries that lead to years and even decades of physical and emotional suffering.
Gas-prompted explosions are often attributed to the homeowners or other individuals they harm. However, in many cases, the gas and utility providers are to blame. When utility provider negligence harms you or your loved ones, pursuing legal recourse is your best option.
Common Sources of Gas Explosions
Lots of products can prompt natural gas leaks if they lack proper construction or testing. From there, explosions can occur. Negligence may also be at play during the installation process or in later maintenance efforts — or lack thereof. Examples of product defects or negligence leading to gas explosions include:
- Leaking flex pipes or valves in gas ovens
- Improper venting of propane tanks
- Improper installation of gas furnaces, water heaters, or other appliances
- Failure of landlords or other responsible parties to properly inspect or maintain gas appliances
Sometimes, warning signs are evident long before explosions occur but responsible parties fail to take action, triggering devastating consequences.
