Basic Types of Explosions & Fire Accidents
Explosions and fire accidents happen without warning, whether at home or at work. Maybe you were working with flammable gas in the workplace or simply starting your furnace for the first time in the fall.
Some of the various types and causes of explosions and fire accidents include:
- Chemical explosions
- Electrical fires
- Gas explosions
- Electrocution and electric shock
- Workplace fires
- Car explosions and fire accidents
- Kitchen fires
- Furnace and household appliance explosions
- Tank explosions
- Structural fires
Determining the root cause of the explosion or fire is key to holding the responsible party financially accountable for your injuries. At the Marrone Law Firm, LLC, we work with experts to determine the source of the explosion or fire if necessary. From that point, we investigate to determine who was actually responsible for the issue that caused the explosion or fire.
Large companies or employers who are responsible for fires and explosions may go to work quickly to correct the problem and minimize their financial liability. They may employ their teams of defense lawyers to protect their own finances at your expense. Our lawyers have the experience and resources needed to fight back.
If you were seriously hurt in an explosion or fire accident in Philadelphia or elsewhere in Pennsylvania, call us as soon as possible so that we can begin our investigation.
Options for Recovering Fair Compensation in Your Philadelphia Explosion & Fire Accident Case
Depending upon the circumstances of the explosion or fire, we can explore many options for recovering fair compensation, including:
- Personal injury lawsuit. If you were hurt because of someone else’s negligence, you may be entitled to pursue compensation via a personal injury lawsuit. Even if the fire or explosion happened at work, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit if a third party’s careless or reckless behavior caused the accident.
- Workers’ compensation. Any time you are hurt in the course of employment, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Fair workers’ compensation can help you get back on your feet again, but these benefits are often not enough to cover all of your actual damages.
- Product liability. Fires and explosions can be caused by unreasonably dangerous products. If the cause of the accident was a defective consumer product, equipment used on the job or even a vehicle component, we can pursue your right to compensation against the manufacturer or designer of the dangerous product.
- Premises liability. Sometimes fires and explosions are caused by a property owner’s failure to conduct reasonable property maintenance. Business owners have a duty to inspect in order to uncover unreasonably dangerous conditions on the property. Premises liability can also form the basis for a personal injury lawsuit.
- Wrongful death. If the fire or explosion resulted in the death of your loved one, our lawyers can help you pursue your right to compensation in a wrongful death lawsuit.
Regardless of the path we take to get there, you may be entitled to fair compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, diminished quality of life, and more.

FAQ: If I was hurt in an explosion or fire accident at work, who can I sue? What about workers’ compensation?
If your accident happened at work, you may be entitled to both workers’ compensation benefits and compensation from a personal injury lawsuit. You cannot sue your employer or your co-workers who might have contributed to the cause of the accident. You can, however, sue any other negligent third party who caused the fire or explosion. These parties may include:
– Property owners
– Property managers
– The manufacturer of the equipment or product that caused the fire or explosion
In many work accidents, multiple parties may be involved. Depending on the results of our investigation, we may find that more than one party is responsible. You can pursue a lawsuit against anyone who was not your direct employer while receiving workers’ compensation benefits. Later, you may be required to reimburse workers’ compensation for any duplicate benefits you recover in the lawsuit.
