The parties who might be entitled to file a personal injury claim against the defendants will depend on who was injured or killed in an explosion accident and the relationships of other parties to the victim.
In an injury claim, the injured victim may file a lawsuit against the parties that contributed to the accident. If the victim is a child, the child’s parents may file a lawsuit for him or her.
Claims that involve workplace accidents can be filed by the injured worker or the families of workers who were killed. In wrongful death explosion accident lawsuits, people with the following relationships to the deceased person can file claims:
- Spouses or children
- Parents if there wasn’t a spouse or child
- Siblings if the parents do not survive
- Grandparents if none of the other parties survive
- Filing a lawsuit might allow victims or their families to recover damages for their losses.
