We use natural gas for many things, but a natural gas leak is something that we never want. Gas leaks can cause huge explosions that destroy buildings and cause damage to life and limb. Gas main leaks are among the worst kind, and require immediate attention.
One just happened along Ashford Dunwoody Road recently. Fortunately, the gas wasn’t lit on fire, but it did happen at a very sensitive location near where Ashford Dunwoody and I-285 meet. Crews were able to repair the leak before the busy rush hour. Repairs were finalized around 10 PM that day.
We don’t know what caused the gas main leak. It could have been someone cutting into the pipe. It could have been shifting earth bending the pipe. Or something else entirely. If an explosion were to have happened, the liability costs would have been immense. If someone was killed, no amount of money could have fixed that.
When people don’t take care of their premises, they can be liable for injuries that happen to people who visit. If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident, or had bad construction cause you an injury, you need a personal injury lawyer with experience in these matters.
