Gas Explosion Lawyers

Compressed gases such as hydrogen, propane and natural gas are widely used in industry for everything from power generation to cooling. When these materials are not properly handled, workers can face devastating injuries from explosions.

The law firm of Bordas & Bordas is dedicated to protecting the rights of workers who have been injured in industrial gas explosions in West Virginia, Ohio and Pennsylvania. We also represent family members of fatal accidents. We offer a free initial consultation to explain your rights and answer your questions.

A History of Protecting Workers and Their Families

Our attorneys have a track record of obtaining successful outcomes for our clients in industrial accident cases, including several multimillion-dollar settlements and verdicts. The following are examples of gas explosion cases we have handled:

  • $7 million verdict, including $5 million in punitive damages, for the family of a Tyler County, West Virginia, man who was killed as a result of an explosion at an American Electric Power plant in Beverly, Ohio.
  • $5.6 million verdict (including $4 million in punitive damages) for another individual, whose case ultimately settled and is now confidential.

Investigating industrial gas explosions is often a search for the truth. Our lawyers have the experience to uncover negligent conditions such as defective control valves, leaking hoses, leaking tanks, defective connectors, negligent maintenance and improper installation. We will seek out the facts to find out how the explosion happened and identify liable parties. We also have the resources and wherewithal to hire the leading experts in the country — a critical part of a winning strategy in high-stakes litigation.
