Claiming compensation for gas explosion injuries

Imagine being at home or in another building and suddenly the whole world seems to disappear around you. Amid the noise you are unsure of what has happened. Suddenly you realise you are buried under rubble, perhaps with injuries, where just a moment before you were going about your business with no problems at all.

This is an example of what it can be like to be caught up in a gas explosion. Fortunately explosions such as these are relatively rare. However there is the potential for them to occur, especially if there is a leak that goes undetected.

Gas suppliers add an odour to normal gas, because gas in itself doesn’t smell of anything. Most people are aware of this odour so if you smell it you should call the emergency helpline to get it checked out. It is much better to do this and be wrong than not to do it and end up in a gas explosion.

Being caught up in an explosion of this nature is both physically and mentally upsetting and can injure you in several ways. Needless to say the more you can do to keep your home safe the less chance there is of being in this situation.

How can you be injured in a gas explosion?

A gas explosion can be devastating. They have been known to completely level and destroy houses that were standing just moments before. While some people have been lucky to escape with no injuries, others have been seriously injured and even lost their lives in such circumstances. It’s not just physical injuries to think about either – mental injuries can also occur through shock and upset, and the thought of what happened and how dangerous the situation was. Many people struggle to overcome this.
