When an explosion occurs at a construction site, factory, storage facility or other work setting, family members of the injury victims can be left looking for answers. While employers may promise help, that typically means referring to the victim and families to benefits from state workers’ compensation. Those benefits may be far less than your family needs to avoid financial hardship. For more than a quarter century, the lawyers at Soloff & Zervanos, P.C., have helped injured workers and their families in New Jersey and Pennsylvania obtain the compensation they need following serious work accidents. We have offices in Philadelphia, Allentown, Reading, Lancaster, Cherry Hill, New Jersey and New York.

Beyond Workers’ Compensation
Workers’ compensation provides medical care and lost wage benefits for workers who are injured on the job, regardless of who was at fault. If the explosion was caused by safety violations or other negligence, you may have the right to obtain additional compensation through our civil justice system.
Here are a few examples of types of explosion cases we handle:
- Ruptured gas lines
- Natural gas leaks
- Combustible dust caused by improper ventilation
- Improper storage of flammable materials
Explosions may be caused by employer safety violations, property owner negligence, or mistakes by contractors or suppliers. Our lawyers work with experts to establish who caused the explosion. Then we will pursue maximum compensation from those responsible. We have recovered millions of dollars in compensation for our clients.
