North of Mexico City, a series of explosions shook the city. The Governor of the state of Mexico announced that up to twenty-nine people died and seventy-two were injured. Three of the injured victims were minors. They were sent to receive immediate care for their severe burn wounds. As soon as the explosion broke out, emergency personnel were sent in. The victims included employees of a fireworks plant and the people that gathered at the nearby San Pablito market. The area is well known for firework production and sales. Witnesses reported feeling the explosion up to 40 miles away, and described the incident as a catastrophic fireworks show. The images and pictures of the incident show huge plumes of smoke blowing into the sky.

The area where the explosion took place is densely populated. Most of the people that lived or knew people in the area were deeply worried that they might have lost someone close to them. Many of the locals lost relatives and some were still looking for their relatives and friends. One of the people affected by the explosion was looking for her niece’s missing boyfriend and described the process: “They haven’t been able to identify him because he didn’t have his ID. We’ve called the clinic and hospitals and they have not been able to give us any information.”

According to CNN, fireworks related accident are not uncommon in Mexico. In fact, in 2005, there was another fireworks explosion at the same San Pablito market.

Take, for example, the recent explosion that injured a Massachusetts Telecom cable installer.  The installer was hired to install a low-voltage cable system in the dormitory of a local college.  During the installation, the man reportedly brushed up against an unmarked electrical junction box, which became electrified and exploded inches away from his body.  The explosion caused the installer to lose his balance and fall on his back, injuring his lower spine, neck, and right shoulder.

To recover for his medical expenses and receive compensation for his pain and suffering, the installer filed a personal injury lawsuit against the university that hired him and the electrical distribution company that created the junction box.  It was reportedly revealed that, during a 2009 upgrade to the junction box, a metal connect was improperly installed and left bare wire exposed.  When the inspector touched the box, it activated the wire which caused the whole device to explode. The university and manufacturer initially argued that they had done nothing wrong, but eventually agreed with the inspector’s attorneys, Joseph Regan and Kelly Spencer, to pay $1.74 million to compensate the injured worker for his expenses and injuries.

Transporting and storing hazardous chemicals can be extremely dangerous.  Companies and individuals that do so on a daily basis are held to a high standard of care to take every precaution necessary in order to prevent harm and toxic exposure.  When an incident does occur, it can have a catastrophic result.

Take, for example, a recent explosion in Harris Country, Texas that left one utility worker dead.  Twenty-seven-year-old Josua Wade Petrie was a plant operator at a natural gas processing plant.  One day, one of the plant’s hot oil heaters unexpectedly stopped working. Petrie attempted to restart the heater, but it was nonresponsive.  Petrie examined the heater’s four pilot lights and instructed another operator to allow gas to enter to reignite the pilot lights.  They attempted this several times, but without success.

Petrie reportedly next attempted to light another burner with a different operator. But unknown to the operators, their attempts to reignite the heater caused an accumulation of gas around the burners.  According to lawyersandsettlements.com, when Petrie attempted to ignite the second burner, the gas combusted, causing a large and forceful explosion.  Petrie was killed instantly.  Petrie’s family filed a wrongful death lawsuit and was awarded $82.5 million in personal injury damages.
