Natural Gas Explosion Lawyer in Fort Worth
Natural gas is a colorless, odorless fuel commonly used in furnaces, water heaters, stoves, fireplaces and clothes dryers in Texas. While it's safe when used properly, natural gas can turn deadly in cases involving negligence. A gas line explosion can cause catastrophic and often deadly injuries to accident victims. Natural gas is a highly volatile, explosive fossil fuel that, left leaking due to a poorly maintained pipeline or defective home product, can ignite in a moment's notice.

What are common causes of natural gas explosions?
Natural gas pipelines exist in communities all over Texas, including the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. Many of these pipelines have been in place for years. As a result, many of them are outdated and old. Over the years, many natural gas pipelines have been damaged by construction, inadequately maintained or inspected by the big gas companies that profit off the operation of these pipelines in Texas.
Furthermore, natural gas appliances can leak. While major appliances that use natural gas are mandated to have a fail-safe device to prevent leaks, these devices do not always work. Natural gas is colorless and odorless. While it's typically given a scent, some people cannot smell the odor. And even if they can, a sudden leak may not allow people the opportunity to safely exit a home or another building before an explosion occurs.
