Explosions are always shocking and very often cause serious injury or death. Explosions occur in locations and situations including:
- Power plant explosions
- Mining explosions
- Burst fuel tanks in motor vehicle accidents
- Natural gas explosions
- Fertilizer plant explosions
- Acts of violence
The Impact Of An Explosion
Proximity to the explosion and environmental factors help determine the fate of people nearby. People at a location of an explosion are often killed. Others suffer catastrophic or serious injuries. Others suffer psychological damage by witnessing the maiming of the injured. After a highly publicized workplace explosion at the fertilizer plant in West, Texas, thoughts turn to injuries that victims will have to cope with, such as:
- Burn injuries
- Nerve damage
- Internal injuries
- Eye injuries
- Burst eardrums
Recovery from serious injuries such as these is typically very expensive and life-altering. Many explosion victims are left to live with long-lasting disabilities and losses such as major scarring and disfigurement.
