Fatal Explosion Incidents in Oklahoma

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 defective appliances, faulty wiring, and various other reasons. Nearly 500,000 people require medical treatment for burn injuries throughout the United States each year. Many of these victims sustain debilitating injuries as a result of an explosion. More than 40,000 hospitalizations are the result of acute burn injuries while more than 30,000 people require treatment at specialized burn centers. Regrettably, not everyone is able to recover from their injuries. As a result, we continue to see innocent victims lose their lives in devastating explosions across the nation far too often.
