Explosion Injury – Colorado Personal Injury Attorney

Explosion Injuries - Colorado Personal Injury Lawyer - Burg Simpson

Few injuries are as devastating as those suffered in an explosion. What’s 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 loved has experienced the result of these devastating situations, a Colorado personal injury lawyer knows how to help! Contact us now!

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

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 won’t be apparent right away. These injuries often include what’s referred to as blast lung, a severe pulmonary contusion, bleeding, or swelling that includes blood vessel damage. It’s 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.

What sort of damages can I recover?
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.

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’s 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.

It depends on the circumstances of the explosion and the injuries you’ve suffered, 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.
