Gas Line Explosion Wreaks Havoc, Kills None

Posted By Houston Personal Injury Attorney || 29-Jun-2011

A natural gas line exploded earlier this month outside a large Minneapolis supermarket, sending flames hundreds of feet into the air and creating a mess during rush hour. No serious injuries were reported.

The explosion, which occurred just a few hundred feet from the I35 freeway during morning rush-hour traffic, burned parked vehicles and blew a hole in the street, forcing an eight-block evacuation area and a closure of the freeway. Heat from the fire damaged some lines, street lights and electrical poles in the immediate area.

Residents in pajamas, some carrying children, milled about in the streets outside the cordoned-off area until about midday when they were allowed to return home. The gas line, which was a major line in Minneapolis, also forced a grade school to be evacuated, with students sent to another school for the day.

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.
