I did not know what to do. I had never been hurt in a wreck before and this was a major accident that was not my fault. I reached out to Zinda Law Group and they were fantastic, answered all my questions, got me help immediately, and took care of everything!!
There comes a time when you need someone in your corner that you can trust. Our time came when we knew we needed the advice and counsel of an attorney. The day we walked into Zinda Law Group we knew we were covered.
There is a reason why this law firm has a 5 star rating. My experience with personal injury attorney Joe Caputo and all of the staff at Zinda Law Group has been excellent... I would definitely recommend Zinda Law Group.
Maria Ciara-Former Client
This is a really great firm! They settled my personal injury case in a year. Throughout the whole process, they were keeping in touch with me and helping me get the best treatment possible. They honestly know what they are doing. It was a pleasure working with these guys.
Everyone was so professional and was very interested in helping me with my issues. They were very upfront and honest about what I could expect.
I contacted Zinda Law Group after getting nowhere on my own with a personal injury case. I am so thankful I did. They took it off my plate and handled everything from appointments, to phone calls, and emails.
Signs of Leaking Gas
One sign of leaking gas leak or a pending explosion is that familiar rotten egg smell that gas emits. While natural gas is completely odorless, that sulfuric egg smell is added by the gas companies to make detecting leaks easier. There are a number of signs that may indicate that a gas line is leaking and a gas explosion could be imminent, including:
- Sulfuric smell of rotten eggs
- Hissing sound
- Continual bubbling in a pond or a creek
- Dirt spraying into the air
- Plants that are dead or dying for no apparent reason
What You Should Do If You Smell Gas
If you smell gas, the following tips may keep you safe from a gas explosion.
- Shut off the gas when possible
- Do not attempt to locate the leak on your own
- If indoors, open windows to ventilate the area when possible
- Avoid creating sparks – do not turn any electrical appliances on or off
- Unplug electrical appliances if you can do so safely
- Do not use the telephone or an elevator
- Do not smoke, use lighters, matches or other sources of open flames
- Do not operate machinery or vehicles near the area of the leak
- Leave the area and from a safe distance call the utility company to report the leak
- If the odor is strong, call 911
- If you are digging, stop and call the utility company or 911
