personal injury attorney to work for you. At the Lassen Law Firm, we recognize
that while such medical treatment is necessary, it is also costly. It
is important to consult an experienced Pennsylvania personal injury lawyer
to ensure that you recover full compensation to alleviate the financial
burdens caused by the accident. If you or a loved one has been electrocuted,
involved in an explosion, or involved in another serious accident, contact

Employees working on construction sites or at industrial factories face
a higher risk of injury because of the conditions and materials with which
they work. Industrial factories that manufacture or use hazardous or flammable
materials are susceptible to fires and explosions because of these materials.
Similarly, construction sites may also be dangerous. Workers and laborers
operating in these conditions are at an increased risk of being injured
or killed in an accident. Workers injured on the job must seek legal representation
to protect their rights and prevent great financial loss. Our experienced
Pennsylvania civil litigation lawyers at the Lassen Law Firm have experience
in handling job injury cases for Pennsylvania clients. We will help you
receive workers compensation benefits and possibly recover damages for
any suffering or loss that you have endured because of your accident.

Explosion injuries are usually significant. Treating explosion injuries
is not only expensive, it often involves countless hours of both physical
and psychological treatment. Explosion injuries can occur at any given
time. We have seen the destruction of homes and significant damage to
neighborhoods from explosions that are caused by gas leaks. Our explosion
injury lawyers in Philadelphia will get you the maximum possible compensation
available under Pennsylvania law. If the explosion happened at work, there
may be a third party other than your employer that is responsible, so
you may be entitled to pursue a claim which includes pain and suffering
in addition to your workers’ compensation benefits.
Causes of Explosion Accidents
- Vehicle and Truck explosions: Thanks in part to the fact that we live in
a progressive society, we do not see vehicle and truck explosions often.
They do happen and all are almost always the result of an accident. Case
in point…Mark was critically injured when a tractor-trailer accident
hit his car from the rear, causing it to explode.
- Propane and fuel tank explosions: Fuel tank explosions are also something
that we do not hear a lot about, but they do happen. Last year, our clients,
a husband and wife were pulled from what remained of their home following
an explosion. The couple was lucky to have survived the blast that destroyed
their home. The explosion was caused by a neighborhood construction project.
The explosion caused both people to be severely burned, and they were
lucky to be alive. If not for the heroic efforts of their neighbors it
is likely both would be dead.
- Commercial & Industrial Explosions: Last year, an explosion occurred
in a boat repair facility. Ten people were injured during this explosion.
This example showcases that commercial and industrial explosions can create
significant damage to a population.
Injuries from Explosions
Burns: Burns are injuries that take a long time to heal, and the cost of
treating acute burns is significant. The average cost to treat burn injury
victims is $25,000
Broken Bone: Explosions are an outward expelling of force. That force is
capable of pickup objects and hurdling them long distances. The typical
injury a victim sustains is broken bones.
Paralysis: The first year expenses of treating a C1-C4 high Tetraplegia
injury is over one million with an ongoing yearly cost of just under $200,000 per year.
Death: Death is a possible outcome for every type of explosion victim whether
it is an intentional explosion or an accidental explosion.
Disfigurement: Disfigurement is also an injury that is expensive to treat.
Our society is very focused on how people look. The loss of your presence
through disfigurement is a loss to income and social stature. The treatment
for those who have been disfigured includes the psychological treatment
for loss of identity among other complicated psycho-social treatments.
An explosion or fire accident occurring at the workplace is a devastating
catastrophe for both the victims and their families. The victim may suffer
serious, life-altering injuries that prevent him or her from working or
living a normal life. The victim's family may also suffer if the injured
relative is seriously impaired or out of work for an extended period of
time. It is important to speak with an experienced Pennsyvlania accident
attorney who will help you file a claim for recovery of damages for pain
and suffering as well as loss of wages. The Lassen Law Firm will help
you get the full and fair compensation to which you are entitled. Please
