Propane Explosion Lawyer

Propane explosion lawyer, George Patterson has successfully handled claims for people burned by a propane explosion.  Propane explosions can occur as a result of a defective product, improper maintenance, a failure to use warnings and failing to install shut off valves after removing propane appliances. 

Most propane explosions result from a failure to follow safety rules adopted in codes and industry standards.  Propane suppliers under certain circumstances have duties to place warnings on propane delivery systems and to secure those systems until a proper test of the system is conducted.  By code individuals that remove propane appliances are supposed to cap the propane line that went to the appliance.  In addition, propane appliances are supposed to have a shut off valve installed near the appliance.  The purpose of this requirement is to make it easy for an individual removing an appliance to shut off the propane to the line that is no longer needed.  In properties with multiple appliances a new occupant of the premises may unknowingly turn the propane on at the tank to use one appliance without realizing that there is an uncapped propane line that is still connected to the system. 

Propane, kerosene, natural gas and other explosions
requires an understanding of the applicable statutes, regulations, rules and case law.  George Patterson has successfully litigated explosion cases that resulted from the alleged violations of industry standards, codes and landlord-tenant laws.
