Explosions

Boston Explosion Accident Attorneys

Persons injured in explosions may be eligible for compensation for their injuries, wage loss, and other damages and expenses caused by the explosion. At the Cambridge law firm of Clark, Hunt, Ahern & Embry, our lawyers advise individuals who suffered burns and other injuries in explosions about their rights and options. We help them seek recovery from the liable parties, insurance carriers and other responsible entities.

Our firm traces its origins to 1983. Since that time, we have assisted many clients with personal injury claims, building strong, fact-based cases that have succeeded at trial or the negotiating table. For clients injured in explosions, we consult with appropriate experts, including fire safety professionals, chemists, industrial hygienists and physicians. These specialists help us identify the responsible party and calculate the long-term cost of the explosion on our client's life and family.

We are caring lawyers who take the time to get to know our clients. In addition to being the right thing to do, spending time with a client allows us to be more effective advocates because we fully understand a client's needs and objectives.
