Because explosions are so often associated with the fictional narratives of action movies, when one occurs in real life, people cannot help but assume foul play. However, due to the massive amounts of complex machinery and chemicals that companies and manufacturers use to run their businesses, explosions can be accidental in many instances, albeit they are often caused by the negligence of someone else. In such a situation, it may be wise to contact an expert explosion injury attorney at 617-787-3700.
When a recent explosion occurred at a UPS facility in Kentucky, the initial reaction of authorities and of the general public was that the cause must have been some sort of terrorist attack. Upon further investigation, however, it appears that the explosion was accidental, and may have been caused by a leak from materials contained in the facility. 12 people were in the facility when the explosion occurred, but only 2 were taken to the hospital and treated for injuries. The FBI, although agreeing in principle that it was likely an accident, has issued a statement saying they will be working closely with local law enforcement and with UPS to get to the root of the occurrence.
