Common Injuries From Explosions in Philadelphia
The severity of your injuries often depends on the type of explosion and where you are when the blast occurs. The closer you are to the explosion, the greater your chances of sustaining catastrophic injuries. Some injuries often associated with explosions include:
- Respiratory injuries
- 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 and hospitalization.
Where Explosions Can Occur in Philadelphia
The threat of an accidental explosion is more common in some places compared to others. Anywhere there’s a gas line can trigger an explosion. However, remember not all explosions are caused by faulty gas lines. Malfunctioning equipment, the use of dynamite at demolition sites, and even some stored chemicals can all result in an explosion. Here’s a look at some of the places where an explosion can occur.
- Home or residential areas
- Vehicle (cars, trucks, watercraft, and/or aircraft)
- Commercial, retail, and restaurant businesses
- Industrial areas and buildings
- Public utilities
Did you know explosions can even occur in forests and wildlife areas? While not common, you can be injured in an explosion while camping or simply enjoying the scenery. If you need an explosion lawyer in Philadelphia, contact Morgan & Morgan to schedule a consultation with one of our specialists.
