Explosions, fires and other mishaps often cause serious burns, catastrophic injuries and sometimes even death.
Although there are numerous causes of these accidents, many can be attributed to the negligent or reckless conduct of others. Located in Corpus Christi, Ben Bronston & Associates has dedicated fire and explosion attorneys that fight for burn injury victims throughout the state of Texas. In 2014, there were over 72,124 fires in the state of Texas which led to about 780 civilian fire injuries and 163 civilian fire deaths. There was a total property loss of $662,625,954.
Fires and explosions often occur in various places such as at work in plants, refineries, factories and oil rigs, electrical accidents at homes, apartment complexes, and hotels. These fire and explosions can lead to burn injuries. Regardless of where an accident occurs, survivors are often left with catastrophic injuries, pain and suffering, as well as significant medical expenses for long-term hospital care, reconstructive surgery and rehabilitation.
Our experienced Corpus Christi fire and explosion attorneys know the ins and outs of personal injury law and handle claims arising from a wide range of accidents, including:
• Home and commercial fires
• Defective space heaters
• Faulty water heaters
• Electrical appliances
• Propane tank explosions
• Workplace accidents
• Motor vehicle accident fires
• Chemical burns
• Refinery plant explosions

While first degree burns only affect the outer layer of skin, third degree burns impact deeper skin layers, and catastrophic burn injuries can lead to permanent disability or even be life-threatening. Many victims are left with long lasting damage to their manual dexterity, muscles, nerves, bones, and blood vessels, respiratory systems and physical appearance.
