An explosion or fire in a home, in an industrial setting, in public or anywhere else often causes much more than economic loss. People who breathe in smoke or come in contact with flames or burning chemicals may suffer lung damage and/or third-, second- or first-degree burns. In industrial settings in particular, light burns and radiation burns also occur with similarly devastating effects on victims.
If you or a loved one has been burned or suffered catastrophic injuries because of a fire, an explosion or a chemical spill, you are encouraged to talk to a lawyer as soon as possible. Contact the law firm of Williams, Walsh & O'Connor, LLC, to schedule a free initial consultation.
