Conroe, Texas AmeriGas Explosion
On November 6, 2012, two workers were badly burned and other individuals
were seriously injured in a propane explosion that took place at an
AmeriGas propane cylinder exchange facility located in Conroe. AmeriGas is a national
leader in propane distribution and marketing, boasting more than two million
clients in every state across the nation.
One AmeriGas worker who was at the scene when the explosion occurred stated
that the workers were involved in a routine operation. While filling and
stacking propane tanks at the facility, someone allegedly stepped on a
gas line. This caused a leak that was then sparked by an unknown source.
The spark caused the explosion and another employee quickly ran to turn
off the gas line. Arnold & Itkin asks the hard questions in order
to help victims of these types of accidents. If there was negligence or
other liability that contributed to the incident, we are committed to
Representation for Propane Explosion Injuries
Propane is a hazardous material commonly used for heating and energy. AmeriGas,
as a propane company, distributes its product to millions of consumers
for purposes both residential and commercial. Propane is one of the most
common gases that results in explosions. Gas and propane explosions such
as this are typically caused when a gas leak comes into contact with a
heat source such as a spark, open flame, or even heat. Propane explosions
and other gas explosions can range from mild to extreme, such as was the
case in the 2008 Toronto propane explosion. Due to the high explosive
risk of propane, extreme precautions are required for distributors and
handlers of the substance.
Industrial accidents are completely preventable, which is why Arnold &
Itkin LLP extends its legal services to those workers that were injured
