An explosion accident happens very suddenly and usually without any warning for the affected victims. When an explosion occurs, the resulting damages can be severe and catastrophic. Deaths and serious injuries routinely take place for victims who are exposed to a blast. The reality is that many of these incidents could have been avoided through the use of routine care and caution.
When an explosion accident has been caused by the negligence of one or more parties, victims may be able to file a lawsuit against the negligent individual or entity. There are few types of litigation that are as complex and specialized as explosion accident litigation. Choosing an attorney may be the most important decision that you make as you embark on the legal process. Below we will explore some things that explosion accident victims should consider when selecting a lawyer to represent them in these cases.
Choosing a Trial Lawyer
The American legal system is built on the notion that injured victims have the right to seek relief by presenting their cases at a trial. In most instances, this trial is conducted by a jury of their peers, consisting of 6 to 12 people. However, it is no secret that the number of cases that go to trial has been steadily and, in some cases, rapidly declining in recent years. According to statistics, approximately 1% of United States civil lawsuits will end with a trial.
Just because most cases do not end up at a trial does not mean that you can choose just any attorney. First, every explosion accident case must be prepared by your lawyer as if it will go to trial. This means conducting a full investigation, preparing evidence that supports your claim, and uncovering all important witnesses and documents. With thorough trial preparation, your attorney will be in the best position to obtain a solid outcome. Only an attorney who actually has trial experience will be able to prepare your case thoroughly as if it will go to trial.

Hire a Lawyer With Proven Results
Many lawyers claim to achieve successful results for their clients. However, some of these claims are overblown or exaggerate the lawyer’s actual experience.

Lawyers Who Work with Experts
Explosions and their causes are often the sources of specialized scientific or other technical knowledge. It may not always be apparent or obvious why the explosion occurred in the first place. Any lawyer who handles explosion litigation should have a network of trusted and educated expert witnesses at their disposal. The expert will work closely with your attorney to investigate the facts surrounding the explosion and its cause. Using the result of the investigation, the expert can then present compelling evidence that a negligent party should be held responsible.
Here at Burg Simpson, our lawyers routinely work with national expert witnesses to help bolster our clients’ cases. We utilize these experts to help prove that the client should be entitled to compensation. In many instances, a strong expert witness is the difference between a successful case and a failed one. Working with our firm ensures that you have access to a trusted expert who can help provide persuasive evidence on your behalf.
Choosing an Attorney Who Cares
Some attorneys will take your case and forget about it. Or they will handle the case without personalized attention. An injury case is personal. Due to the sensitive nature of injury claims, victims often feel that a part of them has been stolen without a good reason.
Having a lawyer who personally cares about your case and your well-being is important. Your lawyer should be interested in your case and should feel empathy and compassion towards your situation. As a client, you should select an attorney who is willing to go the extra mile. At Burg Simpson, our lawyers provide individualized attention to each client. We only take a case if we can help, and we only handle cases where our clients will truly benefit from our assistance.
