Fires & Explosions

Fires and explo­sion are among the many acci­dents caus­ing seri­ous per­sonal injury and death. Whether the fire or explo­sion occurs in a home, apart­ment com­plex, an indus­trial or chem­i­cal plant, a fac­tory or con­struc­tion site, seri­ous injury or death is likely to result.

Injuries from fires and explo­sions include burns, frac­tures, loss of limbs, brain dam­age and spinal cord injury. Burns are a lead­ing cause of acci­den­tal death, exceeded in num­ber only by car acci­dents and falls. When fire and explo­sion vic­tims sur­vive, their severe and exten­sive burns some­times require long-term med­ical care and often recon­struc­tive surgery includ­ing skin grafts and rehabilitation.

A wide vari­ety of fac­tors cause fires and explo­sions includ­ing gas explo­sions caused by improp­erly installed or defec­tive hot water heaters, stoves, gas dry­ers, and fur­naces; main­te­nance or construction-related gas main explo­sions; work­place chem­i­cal explo­sions; post-collision fuel-fed auto­mo­bile fires; and elec­tri­cal fires caused by defec­tive house­hold prod­ucts and appli­ances of all types. Fur­ther, an inci­dent that begins as a fire may lead to an explo­sion, which com­pounds the disaster.
