Natural Gas Explosions

Houston Natural Gas Explosion Lawyers

Helping Injury Victims Seek Compensation for Home Explosions

Over the years, thousands of people have been killed in house explosions caused by leaking natural gas. The gas lines that come from the street into homes are owned by the gas company. The gas company is responsible for properly installing, maintaining and inspecting these gas lines. Sadly, there is a growing trend of natural gas line failures that are causing home explosions – and life-altering injuries for residents.

At The Ammons Law Firm, our team of Houston attorneys has investigated and handled many natural gas explosion cases throughout Texas. In fact, we have won every natural gas explosion case we have ever handled, including a case which resulted in a record-setting $82.5 million verdict for our firm’s client.

  • $82.5 Million Plant Explosion

    Ammons’ client was attempting to start a hot oil heater when the heater exploded. A day later, the man died, leaving behind a widow and three minor children.


Common Natural Gas Line Defects

In some of our past residential explosion cases, we have discovered that the gas company’s neighborhood lines are old and have not been maintained correctly. In other cases, the gas lines were made with defective pipes but not replaced by the gas company. In still other instances, there was evidence that the gas company did not check the lines in violation of codes and standards governing the safe handling of gas.

We have even handled natural gas explosion cases where gas service to the house had been turned off. However, gas from a leaking line that ran through the neighborhood migrated underground into a home, causing a massive explosion that severely burned our client. Because gas tends to lose odorant when it migrates underground, residents may not detect natural gas leaks such as these until it is too late. It is an invisible enemy in the home waiting to find an ignition source that can cause a devastating explosion.

Our Approach to Your Case

The key in a natural gas explosion case is to promptly begin an investigation. You cannot trust the gas company or its officials to investigate the cause of the explosion for you. At The Ammons Law Firm, we take the time to investigate every case, applying over 100 years of combined legal experience. When you have trained investigators on your side, it may be easier to discover the true source of the explosion, whether it’s a leaking pipe owned by the gas company, a violation of industry standards, or sloppy inspection procedures.

Our Houston law firm will begin its investigation immediately upon being contacted by a homeowner or renter that has had a family member injured in a house explosion. We wait for no one. We also advance all costs of the investigation: If we cannot obtain recovery in your case, then you owe us nothing.
