Fire and Explosion Law: An Overview
Attorneys who specialize in personal injury cases are plentiful. There is, however, a subset of personal injury law that is unfamiliar to most people: fire and explosion law.
Fire and explosion law is concerned with the types of catastrophic injuries suffered at home or on the job in a fire or explosion that was the result of negligence. Those injuries include:
- Smoke inhalation
- Eye injuries and ruptured eardrums
- Brain injuries (concussions are common in explosion cases)
- Organ injuries (the lungs, liver and heart all can be damaged in an explosion or fire)
- Injuries suffered from being crushed (usually the result of structural collapses)
