You may have recently seen news reports about a massive explosion that took place in Tianjin, China. It was believed to have been caused by a fire in the city’s port that eventually lead to a catastrophic detonation of nearby gas storage tanks.
Explosions always result in extremely serious personal injuries. Even if nearby people are evacuated, a sudden detonation can have extremely grave results for onsite workers, rescue personnel, and others who may have been caught in the blast.
Like any personal injury case, the victims of an explosion or a fire have rights under the laws of Louisiana. These rights include the option of pursuing compensation for the pain and suffering caused by the fire or explosion. Even with today’s safety standards, there are far too many cases of negligent companies whose lax standards result in explosions and fires that hurt innocent people and their families.
These companies will often attempt to limit the amount of money they must pay to the victims of their negligence; when this happens, it’s absolutely essential to contact an attorney.
An experienced Louisiana injury lawyer can help you fight for justice on behalf of yourself or your loved one that was affected by the explosion or fire. Through legal action, you have the opportunity to secure the compensation you need in order to pay for the hospital bills and other expenses you have suffered after the explosion or fire.
