Common Pipeline Explosion Defects and Causes
In some of our past explosion cases, we have discovered that the gas company’s 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 had been turned off. We have also handled many industrial plant explosion cases in Houston and throughout the country.
