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
- 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.
Who Can I Hold Liable for My Injuries?
Sometimes multiple defendants are responsible for causing a fire or explosion. These parties might include the utility company, the landlord or the electrician who failed to properly install or maintain equipment. Another responsible party could be the city who failed to make proper inspections.
At McGuire Law, PLC, we are very knowledgeable in this area of personal injury law, and have helped many clients recover compensation for the damages they suffered.
Here are a few examples of possible damages you could claim in this type of case:
- Pain and suffering
- Emotional distress
- Decreased quality of life
- Permanent disfigurement or disability
- Lost wages
- Lost earning capacity
- Any medical bills stemming from the accident

If you have suffered an injury due to a fire or explosion, it's crucial that you obtain the representation of a highly skilled Mason City personal injury attorney.

Some insurance companies will even hire experts to negate the responsibility of the other party and blame the claimant for the accident.
At McGuire Law, PLC, we simply will not stand for this. We strongly believe in holding those accountable whose negligence or carelessness caused serious or fatal injuries to others. We fight tirelessly for just payment for our clients, and we are willing to take cases to court when insurance companies are not willing to offer fair settlements.
