Two Hurt in Gas Explosion

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 2-Jul-2011

A gas line explosion near Easton, Kansas and Highway 192 injured two gas workers earlier this spring when the pipe they were replacing leaked and somehow a fire sparked.

The two workers, employed by ATMOS Energy, were on a back-hoe trailer, which caught fire, burning them.

The gas flow was stopped and the fire was extinguished about 90 minutes after it started. The workers were transported Leavenworth hospital. One man was treated and released; the other suffered more severe injuries, and was transferred to a Kansas burn unit.

Easton residents were without gas until about midnight, and anther ATMOS crew was on the scene repairing the damage almost immediately, reports say.

After an accident, the responsible party's insurance company may try to reduce the claim amount. Commonly, insurance adjusters are trained to get information from the injured to assist in reducing the claim. Though some insurers are less guilty of this practice than others, it is important to realize that insurance companies are profit-oriented corporations and reducing claims results in increased profits for shareholders. This can create a situation for the injured in which they are offered a settlement that does not truly reflect the damages suffered. If you accept this settlement, you lose the ability to get more money should your injuries require further medical treatments. It is critical that victims get legal assistance in any personal injury case, and The Doan Law Firm is prepared to fight relentlessly for your rights.
