My Gas Grill Exploded. Do I Have a Case?
Propane gas is colorless and highly combustible. An odorant in chemical form is added to it to make sure that users can detect if there is a leak. If there is a propane leak, a damaged or defective grill, or another issue, the tank or other part of the grill could explode, sending dangerous shrapnel flying in every direction.
If the manufacturer of the grill, the retailer, or any other entity in the supply chain was negligent and your gas grill exploded as a result, you could be able to seek fair compensation for the harm you’ve suffered.
Compensation that could be recovered through a settlement or jury verdict include payment for:
- Medical bills (current and future)
- Lost wages
- Loss of future earnings (if disabled)
- Medical devices and home modifications
- Travel expenses for treatment
- Loss of consortium
- Loss of household services
- Pain and suffering
- Post-traumatic stress
- Scarring and disfigurement (particularly in the case of severe burns)
The amount of compensation you are eligible to collect will vary depending on the severity of your injuries and the specific circumstances surrounding your case.
Types of Injuries Caused by Exploding Gas Grills
If a gas grill explodes, those nearby could suffer severe and debilitating injuries. In tragic cases, victims might be killed by the resulting fire, shrapnel, and impact of the blast. Some commonly-reported injuries in gas grill explosions include:

If your loved one lost their life in a gas grill explosion, you could be eligible to file a wrongful death action against the manufacturer or other entity responsible.

What are some of the causes of gas grill explosions?
Some of the most common causes of gas grill explosions include:
