Our thoughts are with the victim injured in this accident. We hope for their full recovery.

Explosion Incidents in Indiana

Every year, explosions across the United States leave victims with life-altering, painful injuries. Many victims are rushed from the site of their accidents to area hospitals where they undergo emergency medical treatment for their injuries. Although we want to believe that everyone recovers from their injuries, this is far from true. Not only are victims left with permanent scarring, but they often suffer muscle and nerve damage, broken bones, and an array of injuries that completely alter how they are able to perform various tasks. These incidents not only affect victims immediately, but they have long-term consequences for both victims and their families.

Although there are an array of reasons why explosion incidents occur, tens of thousands of people are harmed by faulty electricity, defective appliances, and malfunctioning products. 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, including:

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