Industrial Explosion Accident Attorneys in Rhode Island

Devoted Advocates Passionately Advocating for the Injured

Few things are as devastating and dangerous as an industrial explosion that destroys buildings and homes, leaving countless victims in its wake. Survivors of these fires and explosions often suffer from lifelong emotional and mental trauma, burn injuries, disfigurement, disability, smoke inhalation, and other catastrophic consequences. Whether you lost a loved one or were injured yourself, Decof, Barry, Mega & Quinn, P.C. is led by highly-esteemed Rhode Island industrial explosion accident attorneys who will go the distance to hold the responsible parties liable for the devastation they have caused.

What Causes Industrial Explosions?

Not only do these disasters cause immense harm and damage to those who are on-site at the time of the explosion, but they also produce adverse effects on nearby residents who are forced to deal with the aftermath. Determining the cause or source of industrial explosions can be quite complex as there must be a comprehensive investigation conducted by specialists and experts in engineering, electrical, gas lines, fire scenes, etc. Regardless of the environment, explosions are almost always the result of human carelessness.

The following are dangerous conditions that may contribute to these accidents, including:

  • Faulty electrical wiring and furnaces
  • Gas leaks
  • Malfunctioning or missing smoke detectors
  • Flammable products or materials
  • Dried vegetation

Ultimately, the majority of these explosions and accidents are preventable with proper care and precautions. Unfortunately, they are often caused by owners, managers, or other entities who fail to take the necessary steps to protect their workers and others in the area. Common lapses in care and examples of negligence include understaffing, failing to take recommended safety measures, prioritizing profit over safety, utilizing outdated equipment, and other dangerous behaviors.

Employees and workers often believe their employer will do everything possible to keep them safe, without question. Tragically, this is not always the case. When employers display such an obvious disregard for human life in the name of profit or negligence, they deserve to be held accountable with the full extent of the law. Beyond your employer, multiple people or entities can be held responsible for a portion of your compensation. These include equipment or vehicle manufacturers, an insurance provider, or a fellow employee. Every case is unique and requires an extensive investigation to help determine who is legally accountable for your expenses and damages.
