Gas Explosion Attorneys
Gas Explosion Attorneys
In 2017, a gas explosion in Millersville, PA killed a 54-year-old utility worker, injured three other workers, destroyed one home, and damaged four other homes.
As demonstrated by this example, catastrophes like these can cause extensive property damage, severe injuries, and death. If an explosion is caused by negligence or wrongdoing, that person or company should be held responsible.
Who is responsible for the gas explosion?
Determining who is responsible for injuries and death caused by a gas explosion can be complex. Multiple parties can be responsible, including:
- Gas or utilities supplier
- Landlord and property owner
- Construction company
- Gas line installer
- Person or company responsible for maintaining gas line
- Contractors or others working on-site
- Appliance manufacturer, installer, or technician
Gas explosions can occur inside a home or business, in or around apartment buildings or other structures, and in or near installations involving natural gas. They often result in fatalities or severe and horrific physical injuries.

What Our Clients Have To Say
I had never had to do something like this before and I heard a lot of bad stories about cases dragging on. Mr. Altemose and Mrs. Zancofsky handled every part of my case with urgency and in a timely manner. They made the whole process easy to follow and kept me continually updated. After everything was finished, I know I certainly made the right choice.
On the basis of Mark Altemose’s handling of my personal injury case, I give him my highest recommendation. You simply can’t do better. I was involved in a bicycle accident in a section of the road undergoing construction. My case was complicated for many reasons, and because of the strength of the case that Mark established, the insurance company settled for a monetary amount very close to what Mark predicted. A couple of other reasons for recommending Mark: 1) Mark pursued every possible direction to obtain information providing me with the best likelihood of a positive outcome. 2) Mark could recall extensive knowledge of my case without notes, including a better knowledge of my past medical history than I had. I have no doubt he would have been an incredible trial lawyer if the need had arisen. 3) He, in fact, has won awards from his professional associations for his professional accomplishments; and also “gives back” by serving his professional organizations in a variety of official capacities and by mentoring up-and-coming younger lawyers. He clearly is a leader in his field. 4) It was obvious to me that Mark also has the highest ethical standards.
I cannot begin to express my gratitude for the care provided to me by Mr. Mark Altemose and Mimi Zancofsky. When I was seriously injured in an auto accident, everyday was a struggle. But, I had to worry about nothing other than my treatment and recovery while they managed every detail about my claim. Mark is very confident, professional, smart and responsive–thinking 100 steps ahead. Thank you so much, Mark Altemose, for being an exceptional lawyer. Mimi Zancofsky was awesome, she went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of, she kept me updated and walked me through all all the steps for my case. You’ve been an incredible help with my case. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS LAW OFFICE.
