No one expects to be in an explosion, especially if they don’t work around hazardous or flammable materials. However, an explosion can happen almost anywhere. The gas line to your home can develop leaks. Even the gas-powered appliances in your home can be a potential danger.

Common Injuries in Explosions
Explosions typically cause catastrophic injuries that can affect you for the rest of your life. Some common types of injuries individuals often sustain in explosions include:
- Burns – this can include 1st, 2nd, and 3rd-degree burns. If you experience 2nd or 3rd-degree burns, immediate medical attention is almost always a necessity
- Respiratory injuries like lung damage
- Nerve damage
- Brain damage
- Eye damage and blindness
- Cardiovascular injury, including cardiac arrest
The type of injury and its severity can depend on the type of explosion. For example, burns are more common in explosions when fire is also present. Some of the common causes of burns include exposure to chemicals and hot liquid. If the explosion is caused by an electrical malfunction, exposure to the wiring can result in severe burns. When it comes to classifying runs, first-degree burns are the least serious. First-degree burns only affect the top layer of skin. However, second and third-degree burns always require immediate medical care.
Common Places Explosions Occur in Jersey City
Even though explosions can happen almost anywhere, some places are more common than others; these include:
- Home or residential areas
- Vehicle (cars, trucks, watercraft, and/or aircraft)
- Commercial, retail, and restaurant businesses
- Industrial areas and buildings
- Public Utilities
