Explosions may occur at
construction sites, chemical plants, or other workplaces where hazardous substances are manufactured
or mixed, where electricity is present, or where radioactive materials
are handled. Workers at or near the site may be seriously injured in the
primary explosion or as a result of a subsequent fire or the release of
chemicals, smoke, or gas.
The Villari Firm, PLLC represents victims of occupational explosions in
Philadelphia and throughout the surrounding areas, including:
Chemical explosions, such as those involving chlorine, fluorine, nitrogen, nitroglycerin,
xenon, and other chemicals. These often occur at plants where these chemicals
are mixed or manufactured.
Electrical explosions, which are caused by electrical currents reacting to other materials,
such as metal or insulation. Such explosions may occur at power plants
or other places where workers deal with electric currents, such as construction sites.
Gas explosions, including propane tank or pipeline explosions as well as petroleum explosions
that may occur at oil refineries or storage facilities, or affect motor
vehicles, electrical generators, or heaters.
Types of Injuries Caused by Explosions
Explosions are particularly devastating because they can cause four different
levels of injuries:
Primary injuries caused by the blast itself;
Secondary injuries caused by flying debris;
Tertiary injuries that occur from being thrown by the blast; and
Quaternary injuries, which include all other explosion-related injuries, such as illness caused
by smoke inhalation or chemical exposure, or preexisting conditions exacerbated
by the incident.
Explosions may cause
severe burns, crush injuries, traumatic
spinal cord injuries,
brain injuries, and many other types of physical harm. These may require emergency medical
care, hospitalization, surgery, physical therapy, and ongoing treatment.
They may render a victim unable to return to work for a time—or
at all. The recovery of complete compensation is vital if a victim of
an explosion is to face a more stable future.
Electric Shock Injuries
When you suffer an electric shock, you can experience a wide range of serious
injuries. Most electric shocks lead to serious burns, which are usually
most severe at the points of contact with the electrical source and the
ground. In addition to burns, you could experience shortness of breath,
chest pain, hand or foot pain, or even cardiac arrest.
After suffering an electric shock, it is important that you seek medical
attention right away. A doctor can assess the extent of your injuries
and ensure that they are well documented, which can benefit your personal
