Injuries from a Fire and Gas Explosion

Legal Counsel for Victims in Mason City and the State of Iowa

Natural gas and LP gas in homes can be deadly if the gas begins to leak. When a gas leak goes undetected, it can result in a fire or gas explosion that is not only likely to destroy the premises, but also cause serious injury to the occupants in the home.

Common outcomes of a fire or explosion are:

  • Severe burns
  • Permanent scarring
  • Disfigurement
  • Wrongful death

If you have been injured in a fire or explosion due to a faulty smoke detector, broken furnace or some other defective household appliance, an experienced Mason City, Iowa personal injury lawyer from our firm can provide you with the dedicated legal counsel and attentive representation necessary to file a successful claim.
