Blast Lung Injuries

Explosions can cause severe damage to both property and individuals. The blast wave from an explosion can gravely affect those near the epicenter of the explosion, possibly causing brain, lung or other injuries. Among the most common causes of death and injury as the result of an explosion is blast lung, the result of hemorrhage, ripping or tearing of the lung tissue, and complications from contusions. Blast lung injuries are likely to require extensive and costly medical treatment.

If you or a loved one has been harmed in an explosion for which you were not at fault, the Green Bay explosion attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® can help you to seek financial compensation from the responsible party.

Common Signs of Blast Lung

If you or a loved one was near an explosion at the time of the blast, certain of your injuries may not be immediately and outwardly apparent. Blast lung is an injury that can occur without many any physical signs. Common symptoms include:

  • Dyspnea
  • Hemoptysis
  • Cough and chest pain
  • Wheezing or inability to breathe properly

It is important to remember that absence of external injuries does not mean a blast survivor has escaped the devastating force an explosion can present. Seek immediate medical attention if you were near enough to an explosion to have felt its blast wave.
