St. Louis Natural Gas Explosions Attorneys

Natural gas can become combustible when concentrations of gas and oxygen reach certain mixtures. When ignited, natural gas results in explosions that can destroy buildings and lives.

Causes Underlying Gas Explosions

Gas-operated equipment may malfunction and cause hazardous accumulations of gas. Common equipment failures result from the following:

  • Leaking hoses
  • Leaking tanks
  • Defective gas connectors
  • Defective gas control valves
  • Negligent maintenance
  • Improper installation

Some examples of equipment and appliances that have been known to lead to natural gas explosions include:

  • Gas generators
  • Dryers
  • Water heaters
  • Barbeque grills
  • Gas ranges and ovens
  • Central heating and cooling systems
  • Swimming pool heaters
  • Propane tanks
  • Fireplace logs
  • Gas space heaters

Determining Liability

Because natural gas is a hazardous product, people rely on professionals to manage, install and maintain gas-operated appliances and equipment. However, when the product is defective or the quality of maintenance or repair is substandard, gas explosions can occur. The following parties may become legally liable in the event of a natural gas explosion:

  • The gas/propane company
  • The manufacturer
  • The distributor
  • The sales representative
  • The installation professional
  • The repair professional

Our attorneys at the Hullverson Law Firm carefully consider and examine all contributing factors, drawing on our years of experience and extensive resources of expert witnesses. When we arrive at the underlying cause, we will pursue a claim on your behalf against all responsible parties.
