Explosion Injury Lawyers in Denver

Few injuries are as devastating as those suffered in an explosion. What is worse, they have the potential to inflict life-threatening injuries to several people at once – all in an instant. Explosions can also lead to any number of other injuries, such as brain, burn, or spinal cord injuries. According to the Centers for Disease Control, the most common post-blast injuries involve standard penetrating and blunt trauma. Explosions can also cause extensive property damage and all too often, loss of life.

If you or someone you love has experienced the result of these devastating situations, reach out to one of our specialized explosion attorneys for help! We are here for you, contact us now!

Any number of things can lead to an explosion, such as a defective product, faulty product installation, shoddy maintenance, negligence, or safety oversight, among others. These can occur almost anywhere – at home, at work, or even after a motor vehicle accident. Explosions in confined spaces are often severe and associated with greater mortality rates.

If you have been hurt by a blast – or you have lost a loved one in an explosion – you could be eligible for needed compensation for medical expenses, pain, suffering, lost property, lost wages, among other damages. It is critical to speak to a Denver personal injury attorney quickly. We have extensive experience and a successful track record litigating fire and explosion lawsuits.

Types of Injuries in Colorado Explosion Injury Cases

Explosion injuries are typically classified by one of four types:

Primary: Primary injuries are a result of shock waves and suggest close proximity to the original blast. These injuries typically affect the ears, the lungs, and the gastrointestinal tract. Some of these internal injuries will not be apparent right away. These injuries often include what is referred to as blast lung, a severe pulmonary contusion, bleeding, or swelling that includes blood vessel damage. It is also the most common cause of death among blast survivors.

Secondary: These fragmentation injuries are caused primarily from flying debris, which can cause penetrating trauma, bleeding and eye injuries. Roughly 10 percent of blast survivors suffer an eye injury.

Tertiary: Tertiary injuries are caused by the explosion’s sudden displacement of air, which can toss victims around. These impact-type injuries typically present as blunt and penetrating wounds, and can include fractures and traumatic amputation.

Quaternary: This category of injury encompasses everything not mentioned above, which can include flash burns, a crushing injury, and respiratory injuries.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a major explosion, speak to a Denver personal injury lawyer today to schedule a free, no-obligation consultation.

Determining Liability for Explosions in Colorado

Your first obligation is to seek medical attention. Any investigation of an explosion after that, however, is best left to the authorities – trained investigators who know how to analyze the scene of an investigation. Between local emergency services and insurance companies, there will be several parties involved in investigating any explosion incident.

However, it is still in your best interest to retain legal counsel for yourself. Our Denver personal injury attorneys have over four decades of experience fighting for victims of accidental explosions. We work with our own experienced investigators to recreate the situation and explore the actual causes of the explosion, so we can best establish liability to recover deserved damages

Types of Damage Claims for Denver Explosion Injury Victims

Depending on the circumstances of the fire or explosion and the types of damages incurred, you may be able to receive compensation for funeral expenses, current medical bills, future medical care, past and future pain, suffering, loss of enjoyment of living, inconvenience, emotional trauma, lost wages, future income, loss of consortium, and others. The types of things that you can claim as damages include:

  • Economic losses you might have suffered. These are objectively quantifiable monetary damage that can include past and future medical bills, rehabilitation expense, lost income, any lost earning potential, and any out-of-pocket costs you might have incurred.
  • Non-economic losses, which are more subjective and much harder to quantify. These can include claims for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, mental and emotional distress, and inconvenience.
  • Permanent impairment and disfigurement.
  • Loss of consortium by an affected spouse.
