California Gas Explosion Kills Four

Ruptured gas line caused an explosion in San Bruno, California, killing four people, injuring dozens and destroyed almost 40 homes.

A natural gas explosion and inferno turned parts of San Bruno, adjacent to the San Francisco International airport, into wreckage. Emergency services spent early this month sifting through the debris for bodies.

In all, four died, including Jacqueline Greig, 44, and he 13-year-old daughter, Janessa, whose house at 1670 Claremont Drive was destroyed. Ironically, Greig worked for the California Public Utilities Commission and was a member of the natural gas committee. Many others were treated at hospitals, and at least three were in critical condition Friday.

The 30-inch pipeline, maintained by Pacific Gas and Electric Co., ruptured and caused a firestorm that destroyed 37 homes in the Crestmoor neighborhood on the other side of the freeway from the airport and badly damaged eight other structures.

  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.
