Litigation Success

Fleming Law Office attorneys defended a case involving two deaths to firefighters on an active fire scene at a farm property, where a propane tank adjacent to the fire exploded. The target defendants were the manufacturer and supplier of the propane tank. The firm represented the fire chief and fire department for their role in directing the firefighters at the fire scene, near the propane tank. The propane tank vent was “popping off” ignited gas periodically, prior to the rupture. The propane tank split, with one large piece traveling in excess of 1,000 feet after the explosion. The mediation resulted in payments to the families of the two firefighters and a partial reimbursement to the firm’s client on the workers’ compensation lien.
