Common Causes of Gas Explosions
A major gas explosion can be caused by fully preventable circumstances such as:
- Odor fade
- Leaking propane tanks
- Faulty connections and improper line installation
- Natural gas leaks
- Negligent maintenance by energy company
Natural gas and propane come into your house through a series of complex lines and control valves. It is critical that manufacturers and installers follow specific regulations regarding the design, manufacture, and installation of this equipment. When joint connectors and cobra valves fail because of defective workmanship, your house can become a bomb, waiting to explode from something as simple as a static electricity spark.
How long do I have to file a personal injury case in Missouri?Every state has a time limit for how long you have to file a personal injury claim called the statute of limitations. In Missouri, the statute of limitations for personal injury cases is five years from the date the injury occurred or could have been reasonably discovered. If you fail to file your personal injury lawsuit before the statute of limitations expires then the defendant will most certainly file a motion to dismiss the case.
