Texas Explosions – Danger Zones to Remember

Explosions may happen all-too-often, but they’re also generally unpredictable to those who are ultimately damaged the most by them. That’s perhaps the worst aspect of explosions – injuries and casualties are often the result of being unprepared or because the eventual victims unknowingly walked into a danger zone that led to their suffering.

The Texas explosion lawyers at Williams Hart would like to provide you with some basic information regarding where explosions are most likely to occur. Obviously, avoiding these places will not guarantee your safety from all explosions. However, you owe it to yourself and those who love you to take every reasonable step possible to keep yourself safe.


The first location to bear in mind is one that’s all-too prevalent in Texas. Refineries handle volatile materials constantly, and that means that the likelihood of an accident occurring is that much higher than in other areas. If you can somehow avoid spending too much time next to a refinery, do so – it could save your life.

Anywhere with High Volumes of Fuel

Few substances are more flammable than the fuel we use for our cars and homes. As unavoidable as it is to stay away from where you live and your transportation, there are areas, such as gas pipelines, etc., where thousands of tons of fuel could be present at any time. These are areas to avoid, as the smallest spark, perhaps from a cigarette lighter, could set off an explosion that levels the surrounding area.


This may seem almost insultingly obvious, but you’d be amazed that it isn’t to many people. We’re all aware of the term “rubber-necking.” When people see a fire, perhaps one that’s been caused by an auto accident, they tend to stop and gawk at the surrounding environment for a short time before moving on. Do NOT rubber-neck when you see a fire. You have no idea what substances could be nearby and whether or not these unseen substances are flammable.

Many people are seriously injured every year simply because they’re in the wrong place at the wrong time. Don’t let this be you – you’re only adding to the potential problems by gawking at a fire anyway, as rescue workers need to be able to do their jobs without interference.

Overall, there is no way to completely avoid explosions, as they can happen at any time and in almost any place. If you or someone you love has suffered the effects of an explosion however, you do have legal options.
