FIRES AND EXPLOSIONS ACCIDENTS
The injury legal team you trust after a fire or explosion caused by negligence
Any form of occupational disaster can result in catastrophic or major injury, but fires and explosions are particularly dangerous. An explosion or fire can have existence financial, psychological, and physical impacts for victims. While these types of workplace accidents are less common than other types of workplace accidents, they are among the most dangerous, with the potential to kill or badly harm a large number of personnel.

Fire and Explosion Case Investigations
Cases involving fires and explosions are not the same as regular accident investigations. Expert forensic fire investigators will often be needed on the scene to help determine exactly what happened. These cases and investigations can be particularly time sensitive depending on the circumstances of your fire or explosion disaster.
If the fire or explosion happened outside, it needs to be investigated by an expert as soon as possible, before the weather ruins any potential evidence. Your personal injury lawyer can keep you up to date on any fire investigation data and keep you informed throughout the procedure.
When it comes to fires and explosions, there is a risk of serious and terrible burn injuries. Burns are commonly known as one of the most painful injuries that may occur in fire and explosions accidents.
However, people are less aware of the physical consequences of burns or smoke inhalation, which can be fatal and appear suddenly. PTSD, or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, is one of the most commonly ignored injuries. People who suffer an unexpectedly significant injury are likely to suffer from the shock’s aftereffects, but explosions and flames are more prone to do so.
Depending on the severity of your injuries, you could remain in the hospital for weeks, months, or even longer. It’s possible that you’ll require several surgical procedures, as well as life-saving treatments. Even minor burn injuries can result in painful and unsightly scars.
Types of burn injuries
Burn injuries are classified into three general categories:
First-degree burns which damage the outer layer of skin
Second-degree burns damage the top layer of skin and the layer beneath it
Third-degree burns damage or destroy all the layers of skin and the tissues underneath it.
Burns can cause a range of injuries from a painful red patch of skin to blisters, swelling, and scarring. A severe burn can cause shock and death. Having a severe burn that covers a large area of skin can increase the chance of infection. As burns heal, they can leave disfiguring scars and limit range of motion.
Other injuries from fires or explosions could also cause:
· Permanent damage to lungs and vocal cords from smoke inhalation
· Limb loss
· Vision loss
· Hearing loss
· Impaired vision
· Mental health problems
· Nerve damage
· Reduced mobility
