Injuries Associated With Pipeline Explosions
A pipeline explosion can cause severe burn injuries, requiring lengthy hospitalization and prolonged medical care. Because burns often result in scarring and disfigurement, burn injury victims often require reconstructive surgery.
Other injuries commonly associated with oil and gas pipe explosions include:
- Bone fractures
- Head injuries
- Brain injuries
- Back injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
Because of the seriousness of these accidents, pipeline explosions result in fatal injuries. If you have lost a loved one in a fatal pipeline explosion, talk to a lawyer from our firm about pursuing a wrongful death claim. You may be entitled to compensation to cover a wide range of damages, including hospitalization, funeral costs, lost wages and more.
