Should you worry about a residential gas explosion?

Gas explosions are usually associated with industrial locations, chemical plants and the like. The nature of these places make them highly susceptible to explosions, yet residential areas also come with the risk of gas exploding and causing a fire. Distribution pipes bring natural gas to residences, and defects in the pipes or applianc es can lead to a blast. Apartment residents are more likely to suffer harm as the proximity to other apartments allows for the explosion to affect many. Learn the signs of a potential gas explosion, what to do to prevent it and next steps if it happens to you.

4 things to look for in a personal injury attorney

When you become injured in an accident, you do not want to call just any personal injury lawyer whose number you find. Who you hire will affect the outcome of your case, so you need to decide carefully the attorney to represent you in a settlement negotiation or trial. Look for the following four qualities as you search for the right personal injury lawyer to help you with your claim.

Settlements in Colorado product liability actions

Each year, many people are seriously injured by products that they used in a reasonable manner.

In the event that a settlement offer is made, people should be careful before just accepting it.

Toyota ordered to pay after fatal crash

Colorado residents may be interested to hear that Toyota has been found 60 percent at fault for a 2006 fatal car crash. The man who caused the crash said that his 1996 Toyota Camry accelerated on its own and would not stop before slamming into the rear of another vehicle. As a result of the collision, the man driving the other vehicle and his 9-year-old son were killed.

Fines hit automakers for inadequate defect reporting

Colorado motorists can expect stronger enforcement of the Transportation Recall Enhancement, Accountability and Documentation Act among car manufacturers. Record fines against automakers imposed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration act as a warning against manufacturers with lax reporting practices.

Proving manufacturer liability in Colorado

Regardless of how careful a manufacturer is in producing a safe product, it may be liable for injuries sustained while using that product. However, it may be difficult to prove in court that a defective product was the main cause of an individual's injuries. In some cases, this is because it may be impossible to provide the defective product to be examined.

Toys that pose hazards to children

Parents in Colorado might be interested in a national research center's study, spanning more than 20 years, on injuries related to children's toys. The center found that injuries rose almost 40 percent between the years 1990 and 2011 and that there is a toy-related injury among U.S. children every three minutes.

The settlement would resolve the hundreds of products liability claims by women who allege that they were harmed by the company's products.
