Our San Francisco wrongful death team, working in association with our fire and burn injury lawyers, obtained a $5 million settlement arising from a propane gas explosion at a Lake Tahoe area ski condominium. The blast occurred as a family of five was enjoying a ski vacation. The explosion killed the husband and one of the children. The settlement included cash payments as well as annuities for the surviving children. Our burn injury attorneys alleged that there was negligence in the design and construction of the condominium and that the decision to route the propane gas supply in areas where large quantities of snow could be expected to slide off of the roof was below accepted construction practices.
