New Jersey Explosion Attorney

In a fraction of a second, an explosion can destroy lives. They occur because something was wrong with the appliance, the tank or the equipment holding explosive materials, or release of excessive pressure. Some explosions are the result of a manufacturing or design defect. Other explosions are the result of defective equipment or improper maintenance.

People injured and burned by explosions may have a legitimate claim for damages against a product manufacturer or subcontracted installer, or the property owner responsible for maintenance.
