Every so often, a story will pop up on the news about an explosion at a manufacturing company or on an oil rig, or a big rig filled with fuel involved in an accident on the Interstate that bursts into a fireball. At other times, a natural gas leak at a home will flatten the dwelling in an instant, causing horrible injuries and deaths without notice. Every once in a while, these types of accidents will take place in McAllen or Brownsville, and if you are one of the victims, you could be facing life-changing consequences for years to come.
Determining Fault in an Explosion Accident in McAllen
In an explosion accident, trying to gather evidence can be a challenge, especially if there has been a fire afterward. When a fire follows, it can destroy leads that also help to determine the cause of the explosion. For example, if an oil rig explodes, the owners of the rig may be at fault, or it may be possible to trace the fault back to defective parts used to build or repair the rig. The same holds true in a tanker explosion on a freeway. A driver may be at fault, but that fault could also extend to a company that has not properly maintained a vehicle or to a manufacturer of any number of parts on the tanker that could have failed as well.
The challenge for an explosion accident attorney is to retain the right experts to assist in forensic analysis to affix blame which can help prove a case and lead to an appropriate settlement.
