Understanding Natural Gas Accidents in Louisiana

Natural gas injuries may be caused by poor infrastructure or negligence. This can include outdated piping and other issues. Natural gas explosions can cause serious injuries, property damage, and even result in death. They can also result in carbon monoxide poisoning.

Many of these injuries may require lifelong care and ongoing medical expenses. These accidents may impact workers onsite, residential homes, and local businesses. 

Who is Responsible Following a Gas Explosion?

Determining who is liable for injuries following a natural gas incident can be complicated. In many cases, natural gas companies and their insurance companies are responsible. However, if you are a worker and were injured during your job, you may have to file a claim for workers’ compensation. If the accident was caused by faulty equipment, a third party, such as the manufacturer, may also be partially responsible. We can help you determine liability in natural gas cases.  

What You May Be Compensated For

Natural gas explosions and other incidents can result in extensive damages, and many of these damages may not be immediately apparent. The attorneys at Talbot, Carmouche & Marcello can help you determine all the damages you may be entitled to. 

Ongoing Medical Expenses

Following a natural gas accident, you may be able to request compensation for a wide range of medical expenses. This can include ongoing medical care, therapy, transportation costs related to medical care, home modifications, and more. 

Lost Wages

If you have to miss work due to your injuries, you may receive compensation for your lost wages. We can also help you determine if your injuries will result in lost wages in the future and a loss of earning potential. 

Property Damage

Natural gas explosions can cause severe damage to your home and other properties. You may receive monetary compensation so that you can replace these items. 

Wrongful Death

If a loved one has died due to a natural gas explosion or leak, you may also receive compensation for funeral expenses and other economic damages.
