Extensive Experience in Explosion Cause and Origin Investigations

Our team at Schiffman Firm boasts profound knowledge and experience in determining the causes and origins of explosions. We collaborate closely with highly qualified experts and consultants to secure the best possible forensic support to substantiate our claims and prove our clients’ cases. This expertise is critical in developing effective litigation strategies tailored to the unique circumstances of each case.

We have successfully litigated matters involving:

  • Electrical Explosions: Our cases often involve detailed examinations of electrical faults that result in catastrophic outcomes. We have a proven track record of meticulously unraveling these complex scenarios to establish liability.
  • Gas Explosions: We are especially adept in cases involving natural gas and other volatile substances. Our firm has managed lawsuits resulting from gas explosions that have caused significant injuries and fatalities.
  • Product Failures: Numerous explosions stem from defective products failing under normal or anticipated use. We have obtained significant confidential settlements in cases such as aerosol can explosions and gasoline can explosions, where product design and manufacturing defects were directly responsible for the severe injuries suffered by victims.

Noteworthy Case Highlights

  • Significant Confidential Settlement: In a pivotal case, we secured a substantial settlement for a young woman who suffered extensive second and third-degree burns. This case highlighted our commitment to achieving just compensation for the severe physical and emotional suffering endured by our clients.
  • Natural Gas Canister and Utility Service Failures: Our firm has led litigation involving natural gas canister explosions and catastrophic utility service failures that resulted in fires, building collapses, and severe damages. In one notable case, we represented the estate of a man who endured severe burns and was hospitalized for nearly two months before his death, reinforcing our resolve to hold large corporations and utility providers accountable.
  • Diverse Product-Related Explosions: From tabletop torches to hair care products, our firm has handled a broad spectrum of cases where consumer products have malfunctionally disastrously. Our legal actions in these instances not only provided relief to affected individuals but also prompted improved safety standards within the industries.
  • Significant Confidential Settlement in an Oil Well Explosion: Schiffman Firm successfully litigated a case involving a catastrophic explosion at an oil well, caused by a hazardous accumulation of gas. This tragic event resulted in multiple fatalities and severe injuries. Our firm’s diligent efforts not only uncovered the cause and origin of the explosion but also led to a significant confidential settlement.
