$1.16 Million Verdict for Gas Explosion that Destroyed Woman’s House

We represented a woman whose house was blown up in a gas explosion. Although our client escaped physical injury by running from the house before it was engulfed in flames, as a result of the explosion, the fire and losing all of her worldly possessions, she developed post traumatic stress disorder.

We sued a construction company which had been installing a sewer line in the street outside our client’s home. The construction company had bent a gas line while digging to lay a sewer line nearby. Eighteen months later, during a freezing spell, the gas line cracked where it had been bent and gas leaked into our client’s house.

The jury returned a verdict of $1.16 million dollars against the construction company.
