Explosion Incidents in New York

Explosions throughout the United States have a devastating impact on families. In some cases, material losses are overwhelming. Families who lose their homes, all their possessions, and essentially their livelihoods are forced to start over. As if the loss of homes and possessions were not enough, many people are harmed in these unexpected incidents. In far too many cases, victims suffer life-threatening injuries due to faulty wiring, defective appliances, and various other reasons. Although we would like to think that explosions are rare, they happen fairly often and have a life-changing impact on those involved.

In many cases, victims require hospitalization for their injuries and have to go through months of recovery.  When victims are injured in explosions, due to another party’s negligence, they should reach out to an explosion injury attorney as soon as possible. Victims may be entitled to compensation to help alleviate the financial burdens they face moving forward. Some of the recoverable damages victims can collect compensation for include:

  • Medical costs for current and anticipated care
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damages
  • Lost earning capacity
  • Long-term care expenses
  • Loss of consortium
  • Mental anguish
  • And more
