Propane Tank Injuries
Propane is a type of gas that is sold for residential and commercial uses. Propane is pressurized into a liquid state for transportation and storage. Because the propane is pressurized, even a small leak of propane can create a serious safety hazard. If the leaking propane ignites, an explosion can follow that can cause serious personal injury and even death.
A common use of propane is for grills and outdoor heaters. These are the twenty-pound small propane cylinders that are available at gas stations and convenience stores. If an error occurs in the transportation or storage of the twenty-pound propane tank a small leak can result that can have dangerous consequences.
A person who is injured by propane gas should contact an experienced personal injury attorney. A personal injury attorney who is experienced in burn injuries can help an injured person maximize their recovery.
