Officials were notified of the fire at the historical Catholic church at approximately 6:30 a.m. Apparently, an elderly woman was lighting the candles in preparation for the morning mass when an explosion occurred. The explosion is suspected of being due to a buildup of natural gas in the room. The woman was pulled from the church by the priest and taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of her burns.

Who Can Be Held Liable For Gas Explosion Injuries?

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan is a Texas attorney who represents injured victims in civil lawsuits. Marc has experience representing victims of natural gas explosions, helping them get the compensation they deserve for their injuries. He recently gave his insight regarding the legal rights of gas explosion victims.

"Natural gas companies are required by law to maintain a high degree of safety to avoid preventable injuries caused by their gas connections, pipes, and tanks. To avoid the risk of gas leaks, they must do routine maintenance and safety inspections regularly. Leaks can occur if gas pipelines are not in good working order or require maintenance. This negligence can result in building explosions, often causing structure fires that can lead to injuries or death."

"If a victim is hurt due to a natural gas explosion, they may be able to pursue a lawsuit against the gas company. The victim's attorney must show that the gas company's negligence caused the explosion. However, pinpointing the origin of a gas leak can be difficult; therefore, victims should seek the advice of an experienced gas explosion attorney."
