Building Explosions in Arizona
Each year, explosions across the United States leave thousands of people injured. There are many instances where building explosions take place due to the negligence of others. Building explosions that take place in the workplace tend to occur most often as a result of materials and other combustible chemicals that are stored in close proximity to one another. Improper storage practices can lead to devastating consequences for others in the area.
Victims involved in explosions often suffer an array of injuries. In many cases, victims suffer injuries due to the initial blast. These injuries can include brain injuries, middle ear injuries, pulmonary injuries, and even gastrointestinal injuries.
Another category of injuries that victims suffer from is called blast injuries. These injuries include those caused by being struck by flying objects caused by the explosion itself. These injuries can include traumatic amputations, loss of eyes, lacerations, penetrating injuries, and even blindness.
Unfortunately, there are many instances where injured parties do not realize the severity of their injuries immediately.
