Gas Main Explosion in Philadelphia Kills One

Reports say a gas main that exploded in a residential neighborhood in Philadelphia killied a gas company employee and injured six people.

The explosion occurred in the Tacony neighborhood of Philadelphia earlier this month after residents complained about a strong smell of gas, reports say. The result was a three-alarm fire that spread to three houses and four cars and took about three hours to put out, reports say.

As Philadelphia Gas Works employees tried to shut off gas to the main, the main exploded, killing the worker, whose name was withheld, and injuring four other gas workers. Three of the four were being treated at the burn unit of Temple University Hospital, reports say. The other worker was treated at the hospital and released. In addition, two firefighters were also injured.

  1. 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.
