Causes of explosions and fires
One of the most important aspects of this type of case is determining the cause of the explosion or fire, as this will be necessary to prove the defendant was at fault. Some of the most common examples of causes for these kinds of accidents include faulty wiring and furnaces, gas leaks, a lack of (or malfunctioning) smoke detectors, the presence of flammable materials in improper areas and the improper use of open flame.
The process of determining the cause of a fire or explosion requires a significant amount of experience, and in many cases it is necessary to bring in outside experts who can analyze the incident to determine what happened. Those experts (engineers, electricians, gas line technicians, etc.) can then serve as valuable witnesses in your case.
Once the cause of the accident is clear, the focus of the case shifts to proving the liability of the defendant.
