Explosion Incidents in Texas

Hempstead, TX – Explosion on 5th St Leaves One InjuredEach year, hundreds of people across the United States lose their lives in explosions. These incidents are often unpredictable and have sudden and devastating consequences for both victims and their families. There are few things worse than experiencing the loss of a loved one. Knowing that they lost their life as a result of an incident that could have been prevented just makes the situation even more unbearable.

Although there are many reasons why explosions take place, a large percentage of these incidents are directly related to the negligent, reckless, and careless actions of others. When manufacturers are negligent in putting together products, when work environments are unsafe, and when appliances malfunction, it can have devastating consequences for those in close proximity.
