We Bring Over 25 Years Of Experience To Your Explosion Injuries Claim

Explosions raise complicated legal questions. If you were injured, you may have legal claims involving product liability, personal injury, or wrongful death law. Yet time is of the essence. If you do not enlist an attorney to investigate the site, evidence might be destroyed, and your full interests might not be protected.

An Iowa Gas And Propane Explosion Injuries Attorney With National Experience

The Fire And Explosion Law Experience You Can Trust

An explosion may raise liability issues involving negligence, product liability, or wrongful death theories. Yet the evidence needed to prove those claims must be investigated as soon as possible after an explosion.

Other involved parties understand the time-sensitive nature of explosions. The manufacturer of the defective furnace or heater, the gas company, the landlord, and/or the insurance company all send legal representatives to the site to investigate and gather evidence to support their positions. Victims, in contrast, are often too focused on their losses to think about their legal rights. Many do not realize they need a legal advocate until much later in the claims process.

Offering Comprehensive Advocacy To Fire And Explosion Victims

We have focused on explosion law claims for over 30 years. In fact, attorney W. Michael Shinkle started his career working on behalf of pipeline and odorizing companies. He is familiar with the science behind natural gas and propane explosions. He also has firsthand investigative experience. He understands how to uncover the facts and how to work with experts to prove causation to a jury.

We also work with victims to fully assess their injuries. There may be long-term consequences, including diminished wage-earning capacity, long-term care needs, disabilities, and pain and suffering. We take the time to advise you of all your legal options.
