What Causes Gas Explosions?
Gas explosions result from a gas leak that combines with an ignited spark to produce an explosion.
A gas explosion can happen anywhere and may be caused by any one of the following:
- A defective product, such as gas heater or gas stove in your home
- Negligent installation or maintenance of a gas product
- Propane tanks
- Ruptured gas line to your home or office
- Natural gas
No matter what ultimately caused the gas explosion, be sure to save any and all evidence relating to the accident. Evidence will be necessary in order to prove your damages as well as to determine the cause and responsible party.
Types of Injuries
The most common types of injuries resulting from gas explosions are burn injuries. Burn injuries can leave permanent disfigurement and scarring.
Additionally, individuals who have experienced these types of injuries often suffer from ongoing emotional anguish and distress.
There are various degrees of burns, and the severity of your injury will determine what you may be able to recover:
- First Degree: outer layer of skin burned

- Third Degree: all layers of skin burned, and permanent tissue damage may occur
There may be other types of injuries that result from gas explosions as well. Most injuries resulting from gas explosions are serious and leave lasting effects.
